What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a therapy used to treat emotional and mental health conditions based on psychological means. Psychotherapy considers the person as a whole and works within a collaborative relationship between patient and therapist. 

We all experience difficulties at different times in our lives; some of these difficulties can result in coping with life and feeling on edge, as opposed to, or different from, experiencing quality of life and being able to enjoy life. Psychotherapy provides the opportunity to understand how these difficulties have arisen, how to understand the present and how to proceed into the future in a more satisfying way. This involves developing insight into oneself, one’s own way of being and relating to others. With understanding and awareness comes the freedom to create and choose a more fulfilling experience of life.

The effects of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis can be profound and transformative. Each person is unique, as the experience of each psychotherapeutic/analytic process. Some of the changes include feeling increasingly able to go beyond merely coping with life’s complexities, increased capacity for joy and pleasure, richer personal relationships, more satisfying interpersonal relationships including professional relationships, increased clarity about life’s hopes and goals and increased optimism about how these might be further achieved.

What is Psychoanalysis?

Psychoanalytic treatment is founded upon the work of exploration and analysis of the patient’s unconscious, which contains the traces of unconscious desires, fantasies and forms of satisfaction that the patient rejects, but which, nevertheless rules his or her life, in ways which are inaccessible to other forms of treatment and research into mental phenomena. Those unconscious desires, fantasies and modes of satisfaction remain unknown and they undermine the person’s efforts in his or her human relations and work.

What is Parent Child Psychotherapy?

“There’s no such thing as a baby, there is a baby and someone” D.w. Winnicott

Parent Child psychotherapy refers to the modalities that focus the attention nor in the child or the parents but in the relationship between them. This therapeutic approach is based on the understanding that the relational space between a child and their significant people is the foundation stone for healthy development. Parent Child psychotherapy uses play-based activities and parent reflective sessions to foster secure attachments and strengthen relationships between children and their caregivers from babyhood through infancy and into the school years.
