What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a means of intentionally using various communication methods and techniques to alleviate a person’s distress and disability, and to improve their overall wellbeing.
This may involve individuals, couples, families and/or groups.
Who needs Psychotherapy?
There are many reasons why someone would seek Psychotherapy. Generally, these are situations or conditions that create emotional and psychological stress that interfere with daily functioning. This can be in relationship to others (ie. family, friends, co-workers, associates), or difficulty with individual problems and concerns (ie. depression, anxiety, trauma, phobias). Although a certain amount of stress may be natural for an individual dealing with a particular life situation, occasionally it will develop into a significant problem making life difficult to manage.
There are many people who feel that they already have a healthy, and relatively balanced and successful life, but have a specific issue that they wish to resolve to help them feel more successful.
In addition, people often engage in Psychotherapy in order to improve their self awareness and attain a better understanding of their thoughts and behaviors. It is through this process that transformations may occur.
