Therapy is concerned with helping individuals confront difficult situations without becoming overwhelmed by them. These include bereavement, break-down of a close relationship, failure to achieve some valued goal, loss of employment and medical illness. People often respond to these situations with symptoms of anxiety, depression, despair and a fall in self-esteem.
A talking therapy which invites a person to tease out and explore thoughts, memories and events that may be contributing to these feelings.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Growth – or recovery from distress – happens when people transcend negative, habitual, self-defeating coping strategies in favour of new ways of thinking and acting which work better for them.
