WHAT IS PSYCHOTHERAPY?

PSYCHOTHERAPY IS A WAY TO OVERCOME PROBLEMATIC THOUGHTS OR BEHAVIOURS

Psychotherapy addresses personal difficulties. It allows an individual, family, or couple, to talk openly and confidentially about their concerns and feelings with a trained professional. Almost all types of psychotherapy involve developing a therapeutic relationship, communicating and creating a dialogue, and working to overcome problematic thoughts, feelings or behaviours. There are many issues that psychotherapy can help.

Psychotherapy aims to increase an individual’s  sense of wellbeing and relationships. Psychotherapists are sensitive to the client’s needs and employ a wide range of skills to facilitate the client’s goals.
