Psychotherapy tends to look more deeply than counselling or CBT into the underlying issues and causes of our inability to live life as fully as we would like. It involves talking more about your past to help you overcome problems you’re having in the present. Psychotherapy is often a longer term therapy. Sessions are usually an hour long and can continue for a year or more.
There are different types of psychotherapy, but they all aim to help you understand more about yourself, improve your relationships and get more out of life. Psychotherapy can be especially useful in helping people with long-term or recurring problems to find the cause of their difficulties.
