What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a person-centred therapeutic approach that focuses on the supporting optimal mental, emotional, relational &/or spiritual health. It is useful when psychological, developmental, relationship and wellbeing issues arise in life.

A psychotherapist works with a person to build understanding and acceptance of how a person makes meaning of their life, assist with insight, self-acceptance, capacity to understand patterns and beliefs and support stepping into positive desired change and resolution.

What does a psychotherapist do?

A psychotherapist and client work together to understand conscious and unconscious aspects of the present lived experience of the client. A key element of the practice of psychotherapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. This process may include looking at how earlier experiences impact on the person’s daily life and future. Together they may refer to personal story, experiences in family of origin, relationship history, imagination, illness as well as sexuality, spirituality, ethnicity, and culture.

What issues does the psychotherapist deal with?

Many people come to a psychotherapist because they are experiencing discomfort, dissatisfaction or suffering in their lives. Some come seeking further development.

Psychotherapists work with people who have a wide range of presenting concerns: depression, anxiety, sleeplessness, eating problems, illness, addiction, trauma, abuse, relationship difficulties in personal life or at work, communication, intimacy, and commitment problems.
