Are you struggling with your emotions due to a traumatic event in your life? Is how you’re feeling right now stopping you from getting through the day or even enjoying life?
Can psychotherapy help with my problem?
Psychotherapy is used when your psychological distress interferes in getting on with your day to day lives. Issues may include, but are not restricted to:
- Bereavement, grief and loss
- Relationships and marriage
- Surviving abuse, rape and sexual violence
- Sex and sexuality
- Suicide and despair
(See counselling page for a more comprehensive list)
Psychotherapy and counselling are also increasingly being used by people seeking self-improvement and personal growth as a route to self-fulfilment.
If you can identify with any of the above or indeed with any other issues, then our experienced Cambridge psychotherapists can help you overcome your distress and enable you to lead a happier and more fulfilling life.
What is the difference between psychotherapy and Counselling?
Both psychotherapy and counselling are terms used to cover a range of talking therapies delivered by practitioners who are highly trained. They can be delivered over a short or long term period, with the aim to explore your difficulty or distress and bring about effective change and improved wellbeing.
The terms are often interchangeable but they refer to a way of helping those in distress in an empathic, accepting and non-judgemental way. One of the most important elements of the psychotherapeutic process is the therapeutic relationship between you and the practitioner. This relationship is developed within a safe, contained and confidential framework where you’re heard and accepted completely for who you are.
You’re offered a space from which to explore thoughts and big feelings, identify negative or unhelpful patterns or behaviour in order to work towards constructive change using a range of therapeutic techniques.
How does psychotherapy work?
Psychotherapy sessions are usually one hour, and take place regularly once a week at an agreed time. Initially an assessment will be carried out by the therapist, before embarking on what is essentially a journey of discovery towards wellness. The specifics of how this will develop will be agreed between you and the therapist. Some issues may only need short term therapy over a couple of months whereas others may need more prolonged treatment.
Anyone can come for psychotherapy. Many therapists specialise in particular areas so it’s worth speaking to and reading practitioner profiles to find one to suit your needs.
What about confidentiality?
It’s natural to be concerned about confidentiality or about feeling uncomfortable discussing your issues. But please rest assured that anything you tell our psychotherapists will be kept strictly confidential.
Our psychotherapists are very understanding, reassuring, and non-judgemental. Their objective is simply to achieve the best possible outcomes for you.
