People seeking psychotherapy through the Guildford Centre for Psychotherapy may not necessarily be ill or even have "something wrong" with them. Sometimes people feel confused, worried, unable to make decisions or just unhappy and often find that psychotherapy can be of benefit.
Psychotherapy can be helpful if you:
Therapy endeavours to reach the underlying, often unconscious, causes of distress through providing an opportunity to explore emotional and relationship problems in the present and from the past.
In the confidential setting of the therapy, and in the interaction with the therapist, a relationship is established in which a new understanding of long term problems may be reached. This may eventually lead to a better resolution of any conflicts and a fuller life. Creativity may be liberated and working efficiency enhanced.
Psychotherapy is a gradual process and needs commitment over a period of time.
