What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is an umbrella term that is used to describe a therapeutic relationship formed between a professional and their client. Clients may be multiple (as in group or couples therapy), but the goals are the same. Psychotherapy aims to address problems that are psychological in nature. These psychological problems vary in cause, influence, triggers, and potential forms of resolution, but the focus is on grasping a better understanding of the problem and working towards well-being.
I use a variety of techniques to increase your awareness of well-being, as well as the need to address the current issues. These techniques include (but are not limited to):
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Psychodynamic Therapy
- Person-Centred/Humanistic Therapy
- Existential Therapy
- Sex Therapy
- Inner Child work
These techniques are based on communication, exploration, and behaviour change to improve the quality of one’s life and relationships. Psychotherapy is used to create an environment for you to experiment with socially accepted ways to behave within a group dynamic (family or otherwise), as well as create and reach goals necessary for change.
What sets me apart from other Psychotherapists?
My approach to psychotherapy is personalised to each and every one of my clients. I want to help you realise your full potential by exploring your past and working towards a brighter future. Together we will work on a plan to work on grasping a better understanding of your problems and formulating a plan to work towards well-being.
