Adult Counselling & Psychotherapy
What is Therapy?
Talking therapies are an effective treatment for many common emotional and mental health problems, as well as a useful resource for people undergoing any life crisis or change period. In therapy, a trained professional will listen carefully, and mindfully guide you to explore all factors relating to the issue you are coming with and help you to find the best way to move forward.
Counselling tends to be a short-term intervention, focusing on a specific issue and usually ranging from 6 – 20 sessions. Psychotherapy tends to be a longer-term intervention (months to years) addressing concerns which have built up over a long period of time. This may include depression, anxiety disorders, recurrent relationship difficulties, emotional eating, an ongoing dissatisfaction with life, or addressing the after effects of abuse or other trauma. Psychotherapy is also suitable for anyone wishing to increase self-awareness and develop self-confidence in relationships and social situations.
Types of Therapy
There are various theoretical approaches to Counselling and Psychotherapy, and at RHCP we aim to offer a variety of these approaches to deliver a diverse service. Types of therapy arise from different perspectives that involve certain assumptions about the functioning of human beings. For some people the therapists theoretical approach is very important, however for others it is less so.
We list the theoretical approach of each of our therapists on Our Team page. If you are unsure which approach of therapy is right for you, please contact us, and we will happily guide you.
