What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is commonly used for the treatment of psychological problems, and emotional behaviours, that have accumulated over numerous years or through life stressors. These behaviours are treated through communication and relationship factors between an individual and a therapist.

A Psychotherapist is trained to use specialised techniques to help their client reach the goal of their presenting problem/s.

As no two people are alike, some psychotherapists are trained in many different techniques so that they can help their client with the best technique for them. This type of therapist is called an Eclectic therapist. I am an Eclectic therapist. Simply put, psychotherapy aims to alleviate psychological distress through talking and the use of techniques to help our clients change their negative beliefs that often become self fulfilling prophesies. Thus the end result often helps clients to deal with life more effectively and many people stop taking medication
