What is psychotherapy?

As can be seen from the above, the word “psychotherapy” is a generic term that describes therapeutic interaction between a trained professional and their client. Psychotherapy can be applied to a variety of symptoms and aims to improve the individual’s sense of their own well-being through helping them discover what is causing them emotional pain, making them unhappy or adversely affecting their mental health.

How can psychotherapy help?

Anam Cara provides a safe and regular space for psychotherapy clients to explore their difficult feelings or psychological experiences and gain insight and understanding regarding their mental health. Psychotherapy will help clients to deal with bereavement, relationship breakdowns, work related stress, lack of confidence, crisis of identity, anxiety, panic, abuse and loss of meaning. It will also help them explore and understand their concerns, and help them deal with fears or worries.

Using psychotherapy

Using one or more of the psychotherapy approaches shown above the therapist will begin from the client’s current circumstances, position and all that these entail, working from many angles depending on what is uncovered in each therapeutic encounter. Through a process of challenge, with support and empathy the therapist can work on correcting:

  • Brittle, low and unclear self concepts
  • Irrational thinking and behaviour patterns
  • Lifetraps that control and restrict the capacity to choose more freely in our lives
  • Unequal and oppressive relationship patterns

The basis of psychotherapy

The art of therapy is supported by a thorough scientific and empirical grounding with information, justification and options presented to the client at each stage of the therapeutic process. Therapists will always respect and value the client’s unique personality, experiences and perspectives. As therapy progresses, emerging issues, priorities and progress as well as setbacks are discussed to help determine the most practical and beneficial ways forward that are right for the individual client and their values.

Anam Cara’s Holistic Health Centres can be found in Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield, Tamworth and Solihull providing a comprehensive holistic health resource to local people and those from farther afield, offering integrative counselling and psychotherapy together with a range of other therapies to create an individual, bespoke programme.
