What is a therapy?

Psychotherapy is first and foremost a relationship that is formed between a trained professional and a patient who wants assistance. The bond established is used to explore and understand the consultant's suffering, supported and made possible by the healthy and wholesome forces he/she carries within.

People request psychotherapy to treat many different types of complaints. To mention but a few:

  • Sadness and apathy

  • Feelings of emptiness

  • Anxiety

  • Recurring problems in the work place

  • Recurring problems in close, personal relationships

  • Difficulties with sexual intimacy

  • Difficulties managing stress, fear, anger

  • Problems related to adaptation following relocation

  • Self-image, body-image, problems with weight

A successful psychotherapy should significantly diminish or eliminate many or most of the sufferer's complaints, and enhance his/her potential to enjoy life and work, and create rich and lasting bonds with others.
