PSYCHOTHERAPY at Health In The Bay.
What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is based within a therapeutic relationship which promotes the client to explore the way they relate to others and to themselves, allowing them to find more satisfying and contactful ways of being in the world and being with themselves. Effective Psychotherapy uses what emerges in the therapeutic relationship to help heal old patterns of thinking, feeling and being. This works on the basis that what happens in the room is a microcosm of what happens outside in the world and by gaining awareness what happens inside the room, the client also gets an awereness of how this also happens outside the room in their lives.
