Psychotherapy can be helpful for any situation involving human suffering, when the ordinary conditions around us are insufficient for life enjoyment. We may struggle with change or lack of challenge and stimulation. We may feel isolated or “stuck”.

The pain we experience can be alleviated with good, supportive relationships and structures. Unfortunately, sometimes the network of support we have in our lives have failed us, or we need “extra” care depending on our circumstances, such as in the case of a crisis. That’s when psychotherapy can be helpful, as an added resource, to add quality and more space to recovery.

Some of the issues that can be helped with psychotherapy are listed below. But this is not a exclusive list. It may or may not involve hypnosis.

  • Emotional issues such as fear, anger, loss of meaning and bereavement.
  • Mental health issues such as anxiety, stress, depression, personality disorders, bipolar disorder, trauma, psychosomatic illnesses.
  • Relationship issues such as difficulties managing conflicts in personal or work life, parenting difficulties (as a parent or child), abuse, control, divorce.
  • Behavioral problems in school identified by a teacher or other instructor as not controllable by the usual methods for managing a difficult student.

If you are experiencing difficulties and would like to know if psychotherapy can be helpful, please contact a trained psychology professional.
