Stockport Psychotherapy believes there are two experts within the therapeutic relationship.
The client and the therapist. The client is an expert on themselves, their history and their environment. The therapist helps make sense of the client’s problems through active listening and sharing psychotherapeutic ideas. Change occurs through the use of psychotherapeutic techniques while drawing on the client’s own resources.
Collaborative working will allow us to find answers to your problems and enable you to reach your goals.
Therapy can help with long standing difficulties or with unexpected distressing life events that occur without warning or reason. Some people feel they don’t have anyone in their life who can offer them an unbiased view. Whereas other people believe seeking help from a professional who is skilled in treating their problem is the only way to move forward with their life.
Therapy helps people to build resilience and enables them to cope with whatever life throws at them.
The therapeutic relationship is key within psychotherapy. Therefore therapy moves at the client’s pace. This allows trust and understanding to grow between the client and therapist. Stockport Psychotherapy provides long term therapy and shorter term counselling using a wide range of psychotherapeutic techniques.
Clients regularly feedback that therapy has really improved their quality of life.
The difference between counselling and psychotherapy is a question that is often raised. Counselling is usually provided for someone who has experienced a life event suddenly, such as a bereavement for example.
Psychotherapy encompasses a more in-depth approach where the therapist and client contract to talk about family history and related contextual factors.
The boundary between counselling and psychotherapy is a fine one and that’s why many therapists use the terms interchangeably.
Stockport Psychotherapy offers counselling and psychotherapy. All therapeutic interventions are individually tailored to suit the client’s needs.
