Psychotherapy

Hugo Simberg, The Wounded Angel, 1903, Ateneum, Helsinki, Finland

Psychotherapy is the use of psychological methods, in the context of a therapeutic relationship with a mental health professional, in order an individual, a couple, a family or a group  to get help to deal with life/relational problems, various symptoms & dysfunctions or mental disorders.   

The purpose of psychotherapy is to augment the individual & collective well-being & mental health, to ameliorate or eliminate unwanted problematic behaviours, thoughts, & emotions and to improve the functionality in interpersonal and social relationships.

Psychotherapy sessions with a trained psychotherapist offer an environment of security and trust. In such a context an individual can express thoughts and feelings, share painful experiences, acquire a deeper understanding and sentiment of his/her problems and attempt new ways of handling, thinking and emotional attitude aiming at the improvement of his/her psychological, somatic & mental health. 

Psychotherapy can take place in individual, couple, family or group sessions.
