Psychotherapy is a general term referring to therapeutic interaction or treatment contracted between a trained professional and a client, patient, family, couple, or group. The problems addressed are psychological in nature and can vary in terms of their causes, influences, triggers, and potential resolutions.
Psychotherapy aims to help clients gain
insight into their difficulties or distress, establish a greater understanding
of their motivation, and enable them to find more appropriate ways of coping or
bring about changes in their thinking and behaviour.
One of the key objectives of psychotherapy is to help you gain a better understanding of the issues that are troubling you.
