What is psychotherapy?

Are you having problems with coping with life? You may be anxious or depressed. Possibly you’ve problems at work, or your relationship or marriage has hit a rocky patch. Or you could be facing a crisis in your life such as chronic illness or bereavement.

The reason for your unhappiness may seem obvious to you. However, there are often long-standing issues that have their roots in your childhood. Things that happened long ago in your life can influence what is happening to you today. Psychotherapy can help you identify and understand these forgotten influences. Once you understand, you can move on, and regain your inner strength and happiness.

What to expect

The initial visit is a period for you and the Marlborough House therapist to get to know each other. An important part of the psychotherapy process is building a good relationship between you and the practitioner. You’ll be asked what you feel is wrong in your life, and about symptoms you are experiencing. We’ll ask you to talk about your childhood, your education, your family, friends, and your work.

Keep in mind that psychotherapy is a long-term process. Don’t expect an instant solution to your problem on the first day! Therapy is about equipping you to recognise and use your own inner strengths and showing you how you can recalibrate your life, rather than a quick fix.

After a course of sessions you could find your life much more easy to manage and enjoy.
