What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy, or known also as counselling, is a talking therapy that is employing different psychological methods to help the individual overcome mental health issues, emotional and behavioural problems, habits and limiting beliefs.
An experienced counsellor can help the client explore the psychological and behavioural issues in a safe, non-judgemental environment. The therapeutic process is orientated towards finding the best way to resolve the emotional struggle and find healthier and better way to move forward.
Making the decision to go into therapy is not always an easy one. It is important that the client feels safe, understood and respected. Bilyana offers 30 minutes initial appointment via Skype or Zoom where you can talk about the problem, answer the questions you might have and find out how counselling and hypnotherapy can help.
When do you need counselling or hypnotherapy?
When the client is experiencing an issue of psychological or behavioural nature, counselling and hypnotherapy are the therapies that have been most successful in seeking resolution, eliciting better coping strategies and helping the client overcome mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, addiction and phobias.
How can counselling and hypnotherapy help?
Continuous medical studies have confirmed indisputably that psychotherapy, counselling and hypnotherapy are extremely successful in treating mental health issues. Emotional, cognitive and behavioural strategies are employed and numerous scientific studies have showed already that the success of those exceeds the results achieved when the same conditions have been treated with medication.
Human beings are a lot more complex and sophisticated to be treated only on hormonal or chemical level.
Counselling is exploring the psychological, behavioural and emotional issues and the client gains insight and awareness of the problem. What can be achieved by working through the issues within the safe boundaries of the therapeutic process is:
• Making sense of past experiences.
• Overcoming the negative consequences of childhood adversity.
• Resolving discomfort and unpleasant feelings such as anger, envy, shame, jealousy, shyness or hate.
• Dealing with self-defeating behaviours and habits such as alcohol dependency, screen addiction, weight problems and obesity, shopping addiction.
• Overcoming mental health condition such as anxiety and depression.
• Gain clarity of relationship and family issues and resolve conflicts.
The therapeutic relationship is of paramount for the successful outcome of therapy. That is why the bond between the counsellor and the clients is founded on trust, mutual respect, understanding and non-judgmental attitudes.
