The aim of the therapeutic process is to create a safe and empathetic environment in which a therapeutic relationship may be established.
Although there are different types of psychotherapy, each relies on communications as the basic tool for bringing about change in a person’s feelings and behaviours.

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy involves exploring your feelings, beliefs and thoughts, including those from childhood, to come to a fuller understanding of the problems you face. Given the often sensitive nature of the issues discussed, developing a trusting relationship with the psychotherapist is paramount to effective treatment.
