What is Psychotherapy?
The word Psychotherapy literally means a ‘cure for the soul’. Psychotherapy enables us to view both current situations and the hidden psychological dynamics of our past so we can learn to heal and understand our present and past. Unresolved events of our past may confuse our thoughts and trigger our emotions, which in turn can distort our image of a current situation. Often we repeat harmful patterns and we don’t understand where they’re coming from. Usually, they stem from a past that has not yet been worked through.
If you find yourself having difficulty in dealing with your present life, your past is very likely exerting its influence on you in ways that you are not yet able to recognize.
How Does Psychotherapy Work?
The Therapist and the client work together to support the development of communication and awareness. The Psychotherapist provides a safe and comfortable environment for the client to share any issues that may be bothering them. Some sessions may be interactive and may include different techniques and methods to assist clients with gaining some control back in their lives. For example, some techniques to help with panic and/or anxiety would be breathing and grounding.
Different Psychotherapists use different approaches or methods when working with clients. Some of Heidi’s techniques include Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Cognitive Behavioral Techniques (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Skills (DBT), Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Intuitive Recall, Psychodynamic Therapy, Art Therapy, Experiential Therapy, Psychodrama, and others.
