My availability tends to change randomly week to week, here’s why…
Some therapists do not require to have their own therapy when they are training and there is no requirement to be in therapy yourself if you’re a qualified therapist. There are two very good reasons why therapists should consider going to therapy, whether as trainees or as practising professionals.
It’s tempting just to give a one word answer to the question of whether going to see a therapist will be beneficial. I’ll explain how successful psychotherapy is in general but also what is different about a psychodynamic approach and what advantages it might have compared to other forms of therapy.
This is probably the most asked question (or variations of it) after ‘what’s the difference between counselling and psychotherapy’? There are many different kinds and these are sometimes known as modalities. I’ll give a run down on the more popular modalities and you’ll be able to see what the differences and similarities are and I’ll also talk about what’s important to look for when you’re thinking of seeing a therapist.
