About psychotherapy

People who became discouraged by mathematical exercises in primary school will probably try to avoid excessive calculation through their entire adult life. With relationships, it works in a similar manner. The difference being - if a difficulty arises with a certain type of relationship during childhood - you will not deal with it as easy as you would with an equation with multiple unknowns.

Such undone homework can terrify you, annoy you and may stand in the way of your personal development. It may result in destruction of your relationships at home or at work.

You may think, that at the core of those mishaps are events apparently too mundane, trival even, to share them with your significant others. On the other hand those events can be too horrifying, too hard to bear, let alone to share with anybody.

Despite that - you are probably sharing their effects - depression, anxiety or anger.
Good news is - there is never too late to learn. Psychotherapist is exactly the person, who can help you rework those hard lessons from the past and subsequently develop relationships that will be more healthy, as they won't bear the marks of ancient problems. Not so good news is, that such treatment requires many months of work and commitment. The change will only occur, if you really want it. The whole process usually takes a few years - there is no way to promise any definite dates, because it all depends on the depths of one's problems, the number of it, possible complications, and last but not least - the will the patient has or hasn't got to change - which is not always as obvious as it may seem.

How does it actually look like ?
Psychotherapy begins with consultation, that includes agreeing on specific goals, and areas to be worked on, and also setting a schedule of meetings. Sessions occur systematically, once or twice a week, with single session lasting between 45 and 50 minutes. Duration of the whole process may vary in case of every person. Main devices utilized to achieve goals are therapeutic dialogue, and therapeutic relation. Full discretion is absolute basics.
