How do counselling, psychotherapy and psychoanalysis help?
These therapies harness the motivation you have to make change, stay close when things feel bad, and stay present on your journey of growth.
When you are experiencing distress, therapy provides unique support for resolution and growth.
Therapy is powerful in deepening insight into your emotions, thoughts, behaviours and values. At the same time the process of therapy transforms you, resulting in a greater ability to cope.
Through a therapeutic relationship, deeper patterns in the personality can loosen over time, heal and grow into something that create greater freedom in life.
In a caring way, you are helped, guided and attended to which allows you to adjust internally. Positive changes in your lived external world can then follow, including greater calm, confidence and contentment.
