Commonly known as counselling or psychotherapy, talking therapies provide a safe, non-judgemental space for the talking through of troubles and difficulties.
This can help individuals find ways of managing their circumstances in positive and helpful ways.
It may help them realise that their current patterns of behaviour or thinking are not serving them well.
With the guidance of an experienced practitioner, psychotherapy encourages you to stand back and take a long hard look at yourself and your situation.
It's a kind of psychological stock-taking. You decide that which continues to be useful, and that which is long past its sell by date and needs discarding. You head in directions that feel right for you!
Originally based on the work of Sigmund Freud, and since developed by others, psychoanalytic psychotherapy is a therapeutic process which helps individuals understand and resolve their problems by increasing awareness of their inner world and its influence over relationships both past and present.
In particular it can enable development of an awareness of how unconscious factors influence behaviour. It differs from most other therapies in aiming for deep-seated change in personality and emotional development.
Not only can it be a treatment that is helpful for those with longstanding mental health problems: anxieties, phobias, depression, obsessional behaviour, personality problems, for example. It can also be helpful for those who feel they have lost meaning in their lives, or who are seeking a greater sense of fulfilment.
