If you are looking for a psychotherapist in London, this article might help you.
If you need to speak to someone professionally about a problem you are having at the present, help is at hand. All people have problems in life and often they go to a parent, friend or member of the family for help. However, when problems become too intense, and when the problem feels insumountable, it is helpful to go to a trained professional-that is to say, to a trained psychotherapist.
If you are looking for a psychotherapist in London, it is important that you choose the right one for you. This is a difficult task. Do you choose a Freudian psychotherapist, an Adlerian psychotherapist, a Kohutian psychotherapist, a Jungian psychologist, a Kleinian psychotherapist, or a humanistic therapist? Often, this question comes down to rapport. You would be well advised to try at least a couple of therapists. Try them out before you make a commitment. It is important not to embark on, say, three sessions are week before you know what you are getting into. You must feel that you trust your psychotherapist. It is important that you have some say in the treatment programme.
David Kraft, at 10 Harley Street, points out that, ‘if you are not in control of your psychotherapy, you can’t be in control of your life’. The first stage of gaining control of your life is to set your own goals in the psychotherapy.
Which psychological disorders are psychotherapists trained to treat?
