This aspect of therapy deals with deeper issues.
Translated from the Latin, psychotherapy literally means ‘to heal the soul’. Clients are seeking deeper personal change. This is a process of healing the inner self and developing inner strengths whilst acknowledging and realising our resources and true capabilities. Therapy may involve a variety of processes including inner child work, voice dialogue, and sandplay. These processes can be thought of as tools that are used to shine a light on what is going on in the unconscious. The aim is to promote increased insight and awareness. Together we investigate how the client maintains strategies that no longer serve her or him. We can then explore strategies that will enable the client to live the life that he/she deserves and desires.

- Relationship issues
