Psychotherapy is a form of talk therapy that aid clients to resolve their issues. Psychologists apply scientifically validated procedures to help people develop healthier, more effective coping strategies.
Through psychotherapy, psychologists help people of all ages live happier, healthier and more productive lives. It is a collaborative session based on the relationship between an individual and a psychologist. Grounded in dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, neutral and non-judgmental.
You and your psychotherapist will work together to identify and change the thought and behaviour patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best.
