Psychotherapy

You may be thinking that what you’re currently experiencing isn’t serious enough to seek help for, or perhaps you feel unsure about the support a psychotherapist can offer. But regardless of these thoughts or doubts, absolutely anyone can benefit from becoming more aware of how they see the world and why through psychotherapy.

Sometimes you might hear psychotherapy also referred to as ‘talking therapies’. Generally speaking, this is because the practice involves talking about an emotional difficulty with a trained therapist. Topics can range from anything like grief or anxiety, relationship difficulties to addiction.

Our psychotherapists are highly trained to help you express your thoughts and feelings and delve a little bit deeper. Our therapists listen and provide a non- judgmental space so you can feel heard and understood.

What can I expect from my psychotherapy appointment?

For most types of psychotherapy, your therapist encourages you to talk about your thoughts and feelings and what's troubling you. Don't worry if you find it hard to open up about your feelings, our therapist can help you gain more confidence and comfort as time goes on.

Psychotherapy can be a powerful, life-changing experience which can help improve your mental health, overcome social or emotional challenges and fulfil your true potential. Our trained psychotherapists can support you to express your feelings and process them in a safe and supportive relationship, gain deeper insight into the issues you face and talk about things in a confidential environment that you might not feel be able to discuss with anyone else.

Our psychotherapists can also help you to find better ways to cope with feelings and fears, change the way you think and behave to improve your mental and emotional wellbeing and improve relationships in your life, most importantly with yourself too.

All our psychotherapists are highly trained, meet rigorous standards and abide by the UKCP ethical code.
