What is Psychotherapy?

Health and wellness take many forms, including mental health and wellbeing. Psychotherapy is one such modality. A highly-specialized, interactive therapy which focuses on the emotional needs of the client to help improve and support their mental health, it is primarily talk-based. This means that sessions are typically conducted in the form of explorative, supportive and meaningful conversations between the client and therapist.

Psychotherapy is very much an inclusive form of therapy which supports both women and men of all ages and backgrounds. The goal of every session is to support a variety of issues the client may be experiencing. Together, the psychotherapist and client work to affect positive changes in the way the client thinks, feels and behaves both individually and in social settings.

Psychotherapy Can Help With...

Clients who often seek psychotherapy when they are experiencing, and want to improve, any of the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Grief
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Simply want to embark on your own self-exploration
  • Dealing with pain

During each session, the therapist respectfully explores the client’s concerns in a safe, supportive and welcoming environment. The goal of each session is typically mutually agreed upon by both the client and psychotherapist, with clear and focused boundaries during their conversation. Centred on promoting authenticity, compassion and acceptance, professional psychotherapists work collaboratively with clients to promote individual well being.

Due to the versatile nature of psychotherapy, sessions can be conducted in varied settings such as hospitals and clinics.
