Frequently Asked Questions

What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy aims to help clients gain insight into their difficulties or distress, support them in establishing a greater understanding of their motivation, and enable them to find more appropriate ways of coping or bring about changes in their thinking and behaviour.

Psychotherapy may help with the following:
– Anxiety
– Low mood/Depression
– Body image issues
– Stress
– Insomnia
And even IBS

Psychotherapy involves exploring feelings, beliefs, thoughts and relevant events, sometimes from childhood and personal history, in a structured way with someone trained to help you do it safely. The session is patient led (i.e. I may not start the conversation but will instead encourage you to bring things into the session).

What is counselling?
Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment.
