Psychotherapy is a talking therapy that is used to treat emotional problems and mental health issues.  As well as talking through issues in a safe environment with an aim to identify patterns and beliefs that keep the Patient stuck within their issues, it is the aim to highlight potential solutions and to look at ways of implementing these within a person`s everyday life to enable them to have a much more satisfactory and balanced life.

Psychotherapy can also include a range of methods including wider mind awareness, creative thinking and if chosen by the Patient can also be blended in with other therapies such as Hypnotherapy, NLP, EMDR and EFT. The therapist can advise on what treatments would benefit the Patient

The quiet environment at Mind & Health Matters offers you a safe setting where you can express your feelings and gain a deeper insight into the issues that you face.

Psychotherapy can be short or long term.  The number of sessions will depend upon many factors.  Short term therapy is usually around 6 sessions and long term therapy is very individual depending on individual needs – this can range from anywhere in between 6 sessions to 20 sessions or indeed some Patients may choose to continue within therapy for longer as a form of Continued Personal Development
