What psychological therapy is about?
Psychotherapy is very much an individual journey and it is up to you how you want this journey to look like. It can be a short-term piece of work helping you to manage a specific issue or problem (e.g. a specific fear) that is relevant for you in the current moment. This type of therapy enables you to implement strategies to manage specific problem. A long-term therapy is about exploring more deeply issues that you might have been struggling with for a long time. It often involves looking at deeply entrenched patterns and conflicts that are at the root of the difficulties.
