What is it?
‘Talk Therapy’ is an effective method of understanding and dealing with situations that are causing emotional distress
In a safe, non-judgemental and totally confidential environment, clients work closely with a therapist, using a combination of psychotherapy and counselling
Aims and goals are identified and a treatment plan is formulated
How does it work?
Although it may be appropriate to discuss the past, it is not always necessary to explore in depth. Talk Therapy focuses on current issues and the feelings and meanings attached to them. Therapy may involve a particular method. Hypnotherapy may complement treatment, if desired
As therapy progresses, awareness and understanding enable the client to re-evaluate problems, adjust negative thinking and behaviour and feel positive about the future
The number of sessions will vary according to individual needs and is re-negotiable at any time
Who can it help?
Studies have shown that people suffering from a range of issues can be helped with Talk Therapy.
