Psychotherapy is a means of helping to overcome issues related to stress, drug abuse, emotional problems, mental health disorders, relationship problems and troubling habits. Psychotherapy involves talking with a qualified psychotherapist either on a one-to-one basis, in a group or with a partner. By undergoing psychotherapy you can learn about your condition, talk about the feelings you have for yourself and those close to you, address the problems you’re facing, take control of your life and develop coping mechanisms to deal with challenging situations.

If you have decided to have counselling or psychotherapy, it’s important to find a psychotherapist who you feel comfortable with. A psychotherapist will always treat sessions as confidential, and you can reveal anything without feeling embarrassed, judged or inhibited.
