What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a professional relationship between a therapist and a client that is based on therapeutic principles, structure and technique. It differs from other relationships in several ways.

While most psychotherapy hinges on communication between the therapist and the individual, it is much more than talking about your problems. While family or friends can help you feel better or even provide good advice for change, this is not psychotherapy.

The relationship between a therapist and a client is strictly professional. That is, the relationship exists only and solely for the purpose of helping the patient. The therapist is there for the patient and expects nothing in return but payment for the time.

This is an important point. The therapeutic relationship differs from all other relationships. You can tell therapists things without having to worry about your information being told to others or in any way affecting your job, family or relationships.

You can be honest with therapists without having to worry about offending friends or neighbors. When a therapist asks how you are doing, he really wants to know. This is different from casual or social conversations in which the person who asks the questions expects you to say, “OK” so he can tell you how he is doing.

Psychotherapy provides a safe and confidential space allowing you to process your thoughts and feelings about areas in your life which may be causing you difficulties.

Beginning on a journey of therapy can uncover how your past and present ways of being the world impacts on your quality of life in the here and now. Perhaps there are unresolved issues from your past, perhaps difficult relationships in the present. Working together, you will gain a shared understanding of your life experiences and how you may work towards change both internally and externally.

Therapy will help you develop self-awareness and in turn, help you process and release your difficulties in a paced and supported way.
