This page informs you about our psychotherapy clinics that are open to the public

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is for people who feel they would like support for difficulties they are experiencing in their lives.  The aim of psychotherapy is to increase a person's wellbeing and to strengthen their capacity to make choices in life that are empowering for him or for her.

Psychotherapy is client centred, in that the goals and values of the client are strongly respected.

Adult Psychotherapy Clinic

Psychotherapy can assist with supporting people to improve self-esteem, to examine life issues, to improve quality of life, to build healthy relationships or to heal the impact of challenging life experiences.
Healing or improvement occurs within the therapeutic relationship, where the therapist aims at understanding and supporting the client in a variety of ways according to the individual client's needs.

Psychotherapy is provided by advanced students of the Master of Psychotherapy programme. Sessions are taped to ensure the greatest safety for the client and the best training for the student. Weekly supervision is provided by teaching staff of the Department of Psychotherapy.
