HOW DOES THERAPY WORK?
First and foremost, individual psychotherapy is a means of learning to understand yourself better and of helping you make changes you want to make in yourself and in your relationships. Life is, after all, stressful, how do many of us cope with all the demands made of us and the changes we must go through and how well are we able to maintain our confidence and self-esteem in the process. This depends on many factors such as our constitution, our stage of life, the current context of our life, values that color our experience of life events, and especially our experiences growing up.
Psychotherapy is a process of self-discovery that can help us learn how to deal more effectively with stressful external events and how to feel more comfortable with ourselves and with some of the tensions that come from inside. The process is one that helps people get "unstuck" and facilitates the course of normal development. The end result of individual psychotherapy is often an improvement in health and in general well-being. People of any age can grow and profit from the psychotherapy experience. There is no "wrong" time to begin.
