When is psychotherapy useful?


Psychotherapy is a scientifically sound method of treatment to ease or cure mental suffering or illness. However, many people choose to access psychotherapy without being “ill”, just to deal with problems or conflict, to develop on a personal level or to confront issues to improve their quality of life.

 

Psychotherapy is of use at any age and can be adapted to suit any age, gender, issues and personality. However, it is crucial for psychotherapy to be accessed voluntarily and with a wish for change. In any case, you should be prepared to get to know and confront yourself.

 

Sometimes, in order to achieve success in psychotherapy, it may be necessary that you see a clinical psychologist or a doctor, so any organic causes can be excluded, to get a diagnosis or medication, which then enable you to make use of psychotherapy. In this case, I will advise you on what to do and I am able to recommend some competent professionals.
