What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy allows a person to explore various aspects of their life and talk about them freely and openly in a way that is rarely possible with friends or family. Bottled up feelings may emerge and psychotherapy offers an opportunity to explore them, with the possibility of making them easier to understand and to take action. Our psychotherapists will be able to help you accept and reflect on your problems without becoming burdened by them.
Acceptance and respect for patients are essential and as the relationship develops so too may trust between therapist and client. This may enable the patient to look at many other aspects of their life, their relationships and themselves which they may not have considered or been able to face before.
Here at Spectrum Mental Health, our psychotherapists possess skills in a wide range of assessments, as well as therapeutic approaches for helping children, young people and adults who are experiencing difficulties.
Our psychotherapists can provide evidence-based treatment for a wide range of mental health conditions. We believe that symptoms of mental health difficulties are considered to be only part of the person and that problems do not define who you are.
All of our psychotherapists are fully qualified and hold current membership of the Psychological Society of Ireland.
