Speaking to a trained psychotherapist who has the awareness of what moves you below the surface of everyday interactions can help you offload your stress and suffering. There are several reasons why people choose to see a psychotherapist. The most common reasons people come to therapy are: depression, anxiety, stress, coping with transitions in life, relationship difficulties, grief, OCD, post natal depression, eating disorders.
Therapy enables you to gain an understanding of what holds you back in life, how to change old patterns of thinking and find more helpful ways to engage in living. This process leads to feeling more grounded in yourself, being able to accept past suffering, improving your self confidence and living in the here and now.
