Psychotherapy is a treatment which occurs if a person has some hope that an unpleasant situation or a painful state of mind can be modified, and therefore decides to seek help. Therapy offers the possibility for change so that, with the appropriate guidance, an unfulfilled person can become more content.
Through therapy, you can more fully discover who you are and what you want: what saddens and excites you and what dictates your unhappy choices in life in order to modify them with choices that are more satisfying and realistic. You can develop better communication skills in order to have more fulfilling interactions with others and also learn how to listen to yourself and the ways your body and mind are connected or disconnected. All this may eventually lead you to a more meaningful life, to more enjoyment in work and love, and ultimately give you the ability to come to terms with your limitations, strengths and surroundings so that you can truly bloom where you are planted.
The rewards in psychotherapy are great, and one is never too old to start a more fulfilling life. Depending on your needs, you can choose to tackle a specific problem or symptom with a view to acquiring tools to help you cope with daily life, or, you can decide to undertake a longer term exploration of the workings and intricacies of your mind.
Psychoanalysis is a treatment for healing emotional pain and promoting personal growth. Psychoanalysis can help with: * low self-esteem * repeated disappointments or difficulties in intimate relationships * lack of success at work * indecision and emotional paralysis * diminished capacity for pleasure * creative blocks * sexual problems * trouble with anger * anxiety * depression
Psychoanalysis is based on the principle that many factors guiding a person's feelings, thinking and action remain outside his or her conscious awareness. These unconscious emotional processes influence one's current relationships, work life, sense of self, and ability to feel pleasure.
