The primary purpose of Psychtotherapy is to treat or ease mental suffering.
In the healthcare sector, psychotherapy is a method of healing in its own right, which encompasses the treatment of mental, psychosocial and also psychosomatic disorders and suffering. Psychotherapy also helps patients to overcome stress situations or crises in their lives and to come to terms with interpersonal conflicts or problems within their family or partnership or at work.
As a rule, addressing a wide range of oppressive subjects, but also discovering your own resources, lead to a better understanding of the processes that influence what we experience and how we act. This, in turn, makes a change of perspective and behaviour possible and thus also has a therapeutic effect. The treatment does, however, go beyond the simple eradication of symptoms because the intention is to bring about a development, or even a change, in personality.
This generally leads to enhanced quality of life. During therapy, clients are confronted with several aspects of their life, although a shorter-focussed therapy may also be used to treat one central, clearly defined problem.
It goes without saying that the psychotherapy is performed in accordance with ethical principles and standards, such as doctor-patient confidentiality, for example.
The duration and scope of treatment are determined by the nature of the individual set of problems and will be decided in consultation with you.
