Psychotherapy differs from Hypnotherapy in that it deals with the conscious mind whereas Hypnotherapy deals with the sub conscious mind. Psychotherapy helps people deal with the problems they have in their lives and is best described as a talking therapy. By talking and discussing problems, you will have the chance to learn more about these problems that are affecting your life and also learn constructive ways to deal with them. They may be work related due to over work, work place stress, bullying, employee and employer problems, assertiveness issues, career path problems and work-life balance issues or it could be things going on in your personal life including stress, sadness, anger , bereavement, boredom , guilt, relationship, marital and sexual problems. Very often work problems encroach on your personal life and personal problems affect your working life.
Psychotherapy or Counselling can be used to support a person who is finding it more and more difficult to cope with everyday life. You will not always be aware just what it is that is causing all these difficulties in your life and with the help of Psychotherapy we can uncover these problems and issues.
Typically you will have a session once a week, where you will get a chance to talk over and discuss things that are causing you difficulty with your life. Psychotherapy is very goal orientated and deals with problem solving, it can also be very good for you to learn more about what it is that you are suffering from, this will give you a better understanding of how to deal with it. Most people see a Psychotherapist because they have a desire to change their lives for the better and it is a chance to talk about deeply personal issues in the knowledge that it is in complete confidentiality to a person who has the necessary skills and knowledge to help you.
