What is Psychotherapy?

Sometimes in life, we feel stuck, powerless and in turmoil. We are not sure which way to turn or how to get better.

We are not sure why we feel the way we do and guilty for lumbering our feelings on our loved ones and friends.

Society tells us we are weak, not worthy of their time and that we should – ‘Keep Calm and Carry On.’

We keep making the same decisions and mistakes over and over again, suffering the same pain and turmoil day in and day out. Feeling powerless and guilty, wondering why we can’t break free from our emotional pain.

The reason Psychotherapy could be the answer is that it aims to shine a light on our underlying unconscious thoughts and feelings in order to bring them into our conscious mind.

Psychotherapy facilitates awareness and a reflection on our thoughts, feelings and actions that would usually be hidden from our conscious mind, yet impact heavily on our life.
