How can Psychotherapy help you?
Psychotherapy can help people learn how to better cope with stress and manage their emotions. I can help people learn how to better communicate with others and build healthier relationships. I also help people learn how to understand themselves better and make positive changes in their lives.
Counselling/psychotherapy is a confidential, collaborative, therapeutic relationship between a client and a counsellor/psychotherapist. The aim of counselling/psychotherapy is to support the client in achieving a more fulfilling and satisfying life.
The main aim of counselling/psychotherapy is to enable you to understand and explore your feelings and emotions in a confidential and safe environment. It can help you to deal with specific problems and can also provide you with the opportunity to explore issues in your life that may be causing you concern. It can help you to develop new perspectives and new ways of dealing with difficulties.
1. The counsellor/psychotherapist will ask about your background and why you came for counselling/psychotherapy.
2. The counsellor/psychotherapist will explain how he/she works.
3. The counsellor/psychotherapist will ask what is troubling you.
4. The counsellor/psychotherapist will help you explore your thoughts and feelings.
5. The counsellor/psychotherapist will help you to understand yourself and your situation better.
6. The counsellor/psychotherapist will give you some ideas about how to make changes in your life.
7. The counsellor/psychotherapist will support you in making these changes.
This will depend on the nature of your problem, and the rate at which you are able to work.
Most people experienced some benefit from around six sessions, but the number of sessions you will need will be discussed with you at the first session.
Do I need to be referred by a doctor to see a counsellor/psychotherapist? No. You can contact a counsellor or psychotherapist directly and arrange an appointment. Some insurance companies may require a referral from a GP, but most do not.
Counselling is typically shorter in duration than psychotherapy, and it focuses on a specific problem or set of problems. The aim of counselling is to help the individual resolve those issues and move on. Psychotherapy, on the other hand, is usually longer term and looks at the individual‘s overall mental health and well–being. It aims to help the individual understand and change any underlying patterns of thought or behaviour that may be contributing to their difficulties.
Your counsellor/psychotherapist should discuss confidentiality with you at the beginning of your first session. They should explain what information they will need to share with others and what information will remain confidential. Confidentiality is an important part of the counselling/psychotherapy process and you should feel confident that your counsellor/psychotherapist will respect your privacy. If you have any concerns about confidentiality, you should discuss these with your counsellor/psychotherapist.
If you are not happy with your counsellor/psychotherapist, you should try to talk to them about your concerns. If you are still not happy, you can ask to see someone else.
