How does psychotherapy work?
In a reliable setting the person coming for help is encouraged to use the time for reflection. Whatever is foremost on the individual's mind is brought to the session. This can be feelings, thoughts, memories, dreams. The therapist listens and tries to help the person make sense of feelings and behaviour.
As the relationship with the therapist develops the individual discovers new insights, and more appropriate ways of coping with problems and feelings can be found.
Sessions are regular and frequent so as to give as much continuity and support as possible.
