Psychotherapy and counselling help us to explore our feelings and the different facets of our life's experiences. With the help of a therapist you can be enabled to look at aspects of your life and/or your relationships which are causing difficulties for you currently. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy proposes that our feelings about ourselves and others develop through our experience of the relationships we have with important others in our lives. These feelings and experiences we have as children will have a consequent effect on the way we feel about ourselves and the ways we understand and try to manage our relationships with others.
Psychotherapeutic exploration will allow you to gain a meaningful understanding of any symptoms (anxiety, depression, anger, shyness etc..) you may be experiencing. It is this understanding which allows you to let go of restrictive patterns of feeling and behaving, to reclaim your true self and your ability to lead a more empowered, creative and spontaneous way of living.
