What is psychotherapy?

While psychotherapy depends on communication between the clinical psychologist and the client, it is much more than talking about your problems. Psychotherapy is a professional relationship based on therapeutic principles, structure and technique.

Psychotherapy offers a view into your pain, feelings, thoughts and perceptions.

Psychotherapy is

  • an exciting experience where you confront concepts which are often out of reach of conscious awareness
  • an exploration of things that hinder your growth and prevent you from redesigning yourself
  • an opportunity to wake up the creative energies to achieve personal growth


The focus of modern psychotherapy isn’t just on causation, but on your current needs and well-being. It is about your management of your condition or situation, recovery and personal development – for now and in the manageable future.


Psychotherapy can help you make a decision or deal with a crisis, grief, relationship problems, self-esteem issues or anxiety and sadness.

Psychotherapy is about change, growth and transformation. In a supportive and encouraging environment, you move toward a more authentic way of being in the world.

Acquiring knowledge and developing insight is necessary, but not enough: Transforming your plans into action is the real gift.

You may achieve:

  • Better emotional health and happiness
  • Improved interpersonal relationships
  • Improved stress management skills
  • Reduced suffering from depression and anxiety
  • Enhanced self-confidence and achievement
