On this website, you will find information about psychotherapy and the particular therapeutic model called psychoanalytic psychotherapy. It also provides information about the kinds of problems that bring people into therapy, how an initial consultation and further appointments can be arranged and the professional standards adhered to.
Psychotherapy aims at providing a consistent and safe place in which a person feels able to talk about whatever is on their mind. It is a specialist approach that pays particular attention to confidentiality, privacy and personal dignity.
Within analytic psychotherapy, psychotherapist and client explore together the underlying and often unconscious causes of distress, that may have their roots in past experiences. In this way, psychotherapy can gradually bring about a degree of self-understanding and so enable a person to find different ways of being and coping with difficulties in their life.
