Dr. Christos Christophy UKCP
I provide psychotherapy and counselling in North London for individuals and couples. I have been working/studying mental health since 1993 and specialise in short and long-term therapy and coaching. I have training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Existential and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and am a member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS) and the UKCP.
What is psychotherapy and does it work?
This is a commonly asked question and to help answer it I studied some responses given by clients in psychotherapy and mixed them together to create the response below;
Psychotherapy can be a challenging experience, but it can also be an incredible life-changing experience. Therapy provides a safe space where difficult emotions and experiences can be contained instead of leading to destructive behaviours. For many people, it is a valuable experience when life becomes overwhelming and confusing, providing support and guidance. A place to work through and understand complicated situations.
Some find psychotherapy revelatory as it can provide new angles on life. The act of confiding your private thoughts to a psychotherapist can help you accept who you are and the amazing thing is you can say absolutely anything you like; things you would never dream of saying to your friends. Through psychotherapy thoughts, emotions and experiences are looked at and explored over time. Taking complex experiences as they are and watching them gradually reveals the underlying principles at work. Then by applying that principle in novel ways, a different situation is produced.
