Psychotherapy is the use of psychological methods and healing modalities to help a person change behavior and overcome problems. Psychotherapy aims to improve an individual's psychological and emotional well-being, to resolve or mitigate troublesome behaviors, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts, or emotions and to improve relationships, self-confidence and social skills. Psychotherapy requires a commitment to continuing therapy for a period of time, agreed upon with your therapist. Your Psychotherapy session will include counselling.
Counselling is talk therapy. Counselling is built on; active listening, empathy, confidentiality, understanding, non-judgement, helping you to clarify your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and choices, challenging distortions & unhelpful thought patterns and giving your strategies to deal with your problems.
