Psychotherapy Therapist with Patient

Psychotherapy is a method of treating many mental health problems. Using a variety of approaches, the psychotherapists at Counselling UK are able to tailor treatment to each patient.

Our offices are located in London, including Surrey, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Kent and Sussex, meaning you’re never far away from our excellent team of psychotherapists and counsellors.

Person centred and humanistic psychotherapy

Humanistic therapy aims to allow you to work at your full potential. By offering a supportive environment, the therapist helps you discover the reasons for your feelings, emotions, and problems. A humanist psychotherapist works to be understanding and nonjudgmental, which gives you the ability to understand more about yourself.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy

If the problems you face today are rooted in your past experiences, psychodynamic therapy might be the right choice for you. In this type of therapy, your psychotherapist or counsellor helps your work through issues in your past. By revisiting the problems in your past, you are able to let go of them and handle your current situation with more freedom.

In many psychodynamic psychotherapy sessions, the psychotherapist will act as a stand in for somebody from your past, such as a parent or spouse. As the patient, you speak to this significant person as a way of resolving the issues that are causing problems for you now.

Psychoanalytical psychotherapy

Based on the work of Sigmund Freud, psychoanalytical therapy sessions allow you to uncover the subconscious feelings and emotions that may be causing your mental health problems. This occurs through free association sessions, in which you speak about whatever comes to mind.

The psychoanalytical therapist listens to these innermost thoughts and helps you uncover their hidden meanings. By discovering these meanings, you can work on the deeper issues that are causing your problems.

Existential psychotherapy

If you are struggling with the challenges of everyday life, existential therapy might be the right choice for you. This type of therapy is often used by psychotherapists treating anxiety. This is because the therapy sessions allow you to examine how you are interacting with the world and to understand the choices you are making.

By developing a greater understanding of these choices, you and your psychotherapist are able to find alternative choices that you can make in future situations. It is a therapy that aims to help with the problems you may encounter everyday, such as work and relationship stresses.

Absolutely yes, so many people are not even aware they have a mental health problem and many people don’t make the connection in children and mental health. The alcohol can become a ‘solution’ for a persons mental health. At the start it will seem as if the alcohol is quieting the mind, but in time as the addiction progresses it will only add to any mental health problems the person has. It is also difficult to diagnose a person with mental health while under the influence of alcohol.

As well as being directly related to many serious diseases, drinking large amounts of alcohol can also lead to poor sexual performance, and it can harm an unborn baby. If you have an alcohol related problem, there are many ways in which you can get help to reduce your drinking, and there are also many services that you can use that will help you stop altogether. Definition The problems associated with alcoholism, or alcohol dependence, are wide ranging, and can be physical, psychological, and social.

There is no definitive cure for addiction. However, rehab can provide patients with the skills needed to successfully manage their addiction and remain sober. Recovery from addiction is never over and patients will need to work on their ability to avoid relapse for the rest of their lives. A high quality addiction rehab programme sets patients up for this process.

Most people can enjoy a casual night out with friends, have one or two drinks and then stop, and they might not drink again for several days. They enjoy a drink, but they don’t NEED it.
