What is psychotherapy?

The word psychotherapy originates from the Ancient Greek words ‘psyche’ meaning “spirit” or “soul”, and ‘therapeia’ which means ‘healing’. Psychotherapy is a type of therapy used to treat emotional and mental health conditions. It involves talking to a trained expert about your problems and worries, and identifying the cause for your condition. Therapists will then suggest strategies for resolving your problems, help you change your attitudes towards situations, and manage relationships more effectively – with the aim to get your mental state back on track.

What is psychotherapy used to treat?

What our clients say

“I’ve suffered with depression for years. I tried counselling and antidepressants for years but they just didn’t help at all. When my consultant recommended trying rTMS I was hesitant, but I’ve just completed my six week treatment and I honestly wish I had tried it sooner. After only a few weeks I felt like my depression was improving and it continued to do so over the course of the treatment. I feel more stable, my mood has dramatically improved, and I feel like myself again. The nurses and reception staff were fantastic, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.”
