Psychotherapy is a term which can be likened to a jigsaw puzzle, in which the whole is the sum of its parts. In psychotherapy terms this means that there are different kinds of therapies which are designed to help overcome emotional and physical distress.
The psychotherapist and client work together to understand and deal with the distress which a person may be experiencing. Working with people in a therapeutic setting allows a person to contact their inner resources, which can be likened to a hidden potential in the unconscious part of the mind, and this may be tapped and utilised so that the person can live a more healthy life both physically and emotionally.
An initial full assessment may be undertaken which includes a life history from childhood to the present time and areas of possible unresolved conflict and tension are noted by the therapist as possible underlying causes of the present problem. The outcome from therapy you desire is discussed and the most effective method of treatment is undertaken to help you resolve your problems.
Some of the typical problems that may lead you to a psychotherapist are depression, phobias, obsessions, anger problems, lack of assertiveness, eating disorders, sexual and marital problems, children & adolescent problems, stopping smoking, anxiety management, confidence building, relaxation and stress management. This list is not exhaustive and as we extend our knowledge of the human mind more powerful therapies are now available. For this reason a programme formulated especially for you is initiated. Some of the different kinds of therapies available are Brainworking Recursive Therapy, Symbiodynamics, Hypnosis and Hypnoanalysis.
