What is psychotherapy?
At its simplest level, psychotherapy is a conversation between two people. Clients explore any aspect of their emotional, cognitive, spiritual and bodily experiences. This can often involve discussing painful experiences which disturb, frighten or overwhelm them and which they often cannot discuss with family or friends. I will use my experience of being a therapist, the models of therapy I am trained in, and my continuous commitment to own personal development, to offer suggestions, or a specific technique such as EMDR, to the client to help them understand and reframe their experiences.
Which therapy/therapist should I chose?
The straightforward answer to this is to choose a model of therapy and a therapist that you are comfortable with. The research on psychotherapy outcome studies has clearly established that the therapist/client fit is one of the most important factors which results in change.
