Anyone can benefit from psychotherapy. Talking to a trained professional can help you to explore your concerns, thoughts and feelings and improve your mental health.

You may feel that what you’re experiencing isn’t serious enough to get help or feel unsure about the kind of support that psychotherapy can offer. But anyone can benefit from becoming more aware of how they see the world and why.

Sometimes ‘psychotherapy’ and ‘psychotherapeutic counselling’, are called ‘talking therapies’. For the most part, this is because they involve talking about an emotional difficulty with a trained therapist. That might be anything from grief to anxiety, relationship difficulties to addiction.
You don’t need to be in crisis or have a diagnosed mental illness to have psychotherapy. It can help you with emotional or mental health problems, including:

Anxiety
Feeling like you can’t cope
Problems dealing with stress or recovering from stressful situations
Lack of confidence or extreme shyness
Coping with the effects of abuse
Feelings of depression, sadness, grief or emptiness
Extreme mood swings
Difficulty making or sustaining relationships, or repeatedly becoming involved in unsatisfying or destructive relationships
Sexual problems
Difficulties coming to terms with losses such as bereavement, divorce or unemployment
Eating disorders
Self-harm
Obsessive behaviour
Panic attacks and phobias.
