Psychotherapy is about creating a space for thinking about why things are happening the way they are. Psychotherapy can help you examine the meaning that you have made of past experiences, whether experienced as traumatic incidences or not, and their effect on your relationships with yourself, others and reality. Ultimately, psychotherapy’s aim is to deepen self-knowledge to help you develop a sense of peace and well-being.
There are many reasons that might prompt someone to seek professional help from a psychologist;
- relationships may feel less meaningful than they once did
- certain losses, memories and regrets keep returning to the forefront of your mind
- life lacks the level of satisfaction or success that you always imagined for yourself
- or perhaps things feel completely out of control
In all of these cases (and many others), psychotherapy can be of help.
Sometimes, what you experience may be a mental illness, such as Depression or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). As a clinical psychologist, I have been trained to diagnose, and treat the full range of mental illnesses, including (but not only):
- Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)
- Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
- Bipolar Mood Disorder (BPMD)
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Panic Disorder
- Social Anxiety Disorder
- Substance-related Disorders (addiction)
- Specific Phobias
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Personality Disorders
- Sexuality & Gender-related issues
- Dissociative Disorders
- Somatic Disorders
