Psychotherapy is often used for those suffering from emotional issues that have built up over a period of years, rather than at a time of crisis, where counselling may be more appropriate. In enables you to understand their difficulties in order to improve their quality of life.

Psychotherapy sessions will be arranged for the same time and place, on a weekly or fortnightly basis. Sessions are confidential and usually last for an hour. A psychotherapist will be curious and entirely non-judgemental, enabling you to fully explore presenting issues. While many have one-to-one sessions, there are also group therapy sessions available, suitable for specific problems.

While psychotherapy is not a cure, it may enable you to develop an inner capacity to cope with certain thoughts, feelings and situations over a period of months or years.
