What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy refers to a range of different approaches and methods that can help with mental health problems and emotional challenges. These can include Brief Therapy, NLP, CBT, Solution Focus Hypnotherapy, Psychoanalysis, Family Therapy and Couples Therapy.

Psychotherapists are mental health professionals who are trained to listen to a person's problems and help them find a solution. As well as listening and discussing important issues, a psychotherapist can suggest strategies for resolving problems as well as helping to change attitudes and behaviour.
