Psychotherapy aims to address persistent personal issues that seem resistant to being fixed. Outwardly things may look okay to others but on the inside things are not okay and seem difficult to change.
Psychotherapy recognises that reccurring issues often stem from childhood experiences, which may have been ‘tucked away’ outside of consciousness. In the safety of the therapeutic relationship, we explore the thoughts, feelings, behaviours and experiences that have contributed to present day issues. This brings about understanding, acceptance, healing and personal strength.
Some examples of issues that can be solved with psychotherapy:
- depression/deep unhappiness
- low self-esteem
- recurring relationship issues
- inability to cope with the ups and downs of life
“I know people can change – right down to my bones, through every cell, in every fiber of my body I know that people can change. It is just a question of when and in what context.”
