Can Psychotherapy Help Me?
Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy provides a containing and secure space to explore, through a professional and therapeutic relationship, the emotional distress and mental upsets people may experience.
Through this process people start to gain insight into the many complex relationships they have with themselves and others in their lives. Most people experience a sense of change and experience a stronger sense of who they are and how they relate to themselves and the world around them.
These are just a few difficulties that Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy can provide treatment:
- Anxiety and depression
- Problems with aggression
- Manic depressive and bi polar disorder
- Childhood abuse, trauma and neglect
- Relationship problems
- Confusions over sexual identity
- Panic attacks
- Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour (OCD)
- Feelings of isolation
- Psychosomatic illness
- Lack of confidence and self esteem
- Bereavement and loss
- Post traumatic stress Disorder (PTSD)
The aim of treatment is to help develop in oneself an ability to have insight into the reasons of your particular worries and anxieties which have become hard to manage without help. They may have their origin in your childhood, causing a negative impact on your present relationships to family and friends. You may be surviving the impact of trauma. Psychotherapy will help you to make sense of this painful experience, offer the opportunity to work through the confusions.
Fundamentally, the aim of psychotherapy is to help you gain the ability to enhance your emotional wellbeing through gaining the necessary understanding about yourself and the important relationships in your life.
