What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy, otherwise known as ‘talk therapy’ involves collaboratively finding the words to capture your thoughts and feelings so they may be understood and ultimately transformed.

 

Rigorous and empirical research has consistently indicated that finding expression for the full range of our experiences with the support of a respectful therapist facilitates positive change and growth. 'Talk therapy' achieves this by uncovering new insights and creating new experiences.  

New insights and new experiences create neurological changes that make new behaviour and ways of relating possible.  They also strengthen your capacity to recognise, understand, tolerate and manage the full spectrum of your feelings. This can lead to a more rich and meaningful life.
