Psychotherapy is a set of purposeful techniques based on scientific theory and evidence. This form of treatment is well-established, effective and long-lasting.

Talking to a professional psychologist can provide you with support, reduce distress, relieve symptoms, enhance your ability to cope and find solutions, and improve your overall well-being and functioning. Research shows a link between psychotherapy and positive changes in the brain and body, similar to that of medication. Psychotherapy can therefore be used as an alternative or adjunct to psychiatric medications.

Many people also find that psychotherapy can be an amazing asset to managing the struggles of daily living, enriching interpersonal and family relationships, and boosting personal growth.
