What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is the treatment of mental problems by psychological rather than medical means. A psychotherapist will guide and support you through an interactive process in order for you to gain an understanding of your own thoughts, emotions and behaviour. The understanding of the inter-connectedness of these components is the key to develop strategies to improve your mental health.
Mental health affects us all in how we think and feel about ourselves, and has a significant influence on our behaviour. Mental health problems are very common among people and can appear in various forms such as depression, anxiety, anger, eating problems, insomnia, compulsive disorders or a chronic physical illness that is interfering with the emotional well-being. These problems can be caused by external events such as loss of a job or a significant other or expatriation. However, mental health problems can also manifest themselves without being triggered by a direct event. In both cases, it is advisable to seek professional help from a psychotherapist to re-establish your emotional well-being.
