Psychotherapy and counselling are therapies that offer ways to explore difficulties and find solutions that can increase personal autonomy.

Psychotherapy is a type of therapy that involves exploring and reflecting on constraints in a person’s life. It is common to form automatic patterns in communicating with others and in how you think and feel about yourself. Sometimes these patterns become problematic and may lead to unpleasant thoughts, feelings and/or habits. The continuing influences of past experiences in earlier years can continue to impact on current day situations and relationships. Psychotherapy can bring about long lasting change and offers a confidential caring professional relationship to increase your awareness of these limiting factors.

People seek psychotherapy for many reasons such as uncomfortable feelings related to a loss, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, eating problems, sexuality,  gender health difficulties, relationship challenges, stress at home or work life, questions and worries about identity, loneliness and general unhappiness in life.
