What is Psycotherapy?

Psychotherapy is the provision by qualified practitioners of a formal and professional relationship within which patients/clients can explore difficult, and often painful, emotions and experiences.

These may include feelings of anxiety, depression, trauma, or perhaps what is perceived as the loss of meaning of one's life. It is a process which seeks to help the person concerned gain an increased capacity for choice, through which the individual becomes more autonomous and self-determined.
