Understanding Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy helps you to better understand and manage your emotions with the support of a trained and experienced psychotherapist. Arranging sessions with a trained psychotherapist in Chelsea or local to your home or workplace offers the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings. You can also develop mechanisms and processes to better manage your feelings. All of these things combined can be beneficial to your mental health in general.

Psychotherapy is often described as a talking therapy. It gives you the chance to discuss difficult emotions or concerns with a qualified psychotherapist in a safe environment. Psychotherapy can help with a range of different emotional or mental health problems such as:

  • Grief Obsessive behaviours
  • Stress management
  • Mood swings
  • Coping after abuse
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Addiction issues
  • Self-harm
  • Relationship issues
  • Sexual issues
  • Panic attacks
  • Phobias

You may be experiencing any of the above problems or may simply need someone to talk through your emotions due to another reason. Furthermor, there is no right or wrong reason to visit a psychotherapist and it is a chance to dedicate some time to yourself and work on your emotional wellbeing. It is especially important to remember you do not need a diagnosed mental illness to see a therapist and have the chance to talk through your concerns.

With a professional psychotherapist in Chelsea like Paul Barrett, you benefit from a safe environment to talk and discuss any aspect of your life and any feeling. He can support you to effectively communicate, express and manage your feelings in an environment where there is no pressure or judgement. Therapy sessions can also be a way of finding better coping mechanisms and gain better insight into your issues, sometimes finding tools for managing them.
