Psychotherapy is an interactive relationship between human beings, where one helps another. Professional psychotherapists are trained to help people to look at their situation from another angle. Having new insights helps people solve their problems naturally. We only have one view of ourselves so sometimes we are unable to see what we can do to move forward in our lives.
As a psychotherapist in Sydney, my job entails helping people rearrange their thought patterns towards being comfortable with who and what they are. Many people think of psychotherapy as lasting many years and being very intrusive, but with Brief Integrative Psychotherapy people are out of the therapy room as soon as possible. For people with deep-seated psychological and emotional problems, the therapy may naturally take longer.
Ericksonianism is a form of psychotherapy that I use in my Sydney clinic. It is as much a philosophy as it is a clinical way of carrying out psychotherapy and attempts to help the person utilise and rely on their own resources. Of course, there are always times in all of our lives when we believe that we don’t have the ability to deal with our thoughts, histories and futures. Ericksonian psychotherapists, however, are specifically trained to help people to reconnect with their natural abilities to be well and happy, and stay that way.
I am also trained in clinical hypnotherapy as well as psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy and am a highly experienced psychotherapist in Sydney, having helped thousands of clients. As a therapist I have many, many techniques in my toolkit to help you go forward and develop your thought processes and emotional maturity.
Since I’m also a naturopath I take a full medical history and look at what we might be able to change your body to help facilitate the gentle psychological change. It is important to look at people as a whole to help them go forward in life to greater sense of self-fulfilment and happiness.
