Many people seek psychotherapy because they need a change in their lives, are trying to cope with painful feelings, or are interested in understanding themselves better.
Starting points for seeking help might be episodes of depression, severe anxiety or addictions preventing people from living the life they want to live. They may have experienced traumas such as abusive experiences, accidents, severe illness, criminal attack and bereavement, which have left them feeling very vulnerable. Sexual difficulties, or difficulties with sexual identity may be a focal point of the work they wish to undertake.
Whether the issues they need to explore are long term or short term, have been in their life a long time or have come up recently, psychotherapy allows people to take the time they need to make sense of their issues in the context of their lives as a whole, and find a way of moving forward.
