What happens in therapy?
You and your therapist meet weekly and talk. These sessions last for 50-minutes and take place at the same time and on the same day each week. In this changed environment for all of us, sessions are generally by Zoom, Skype or phone with face to face sessions no longer being the norm.
The focus of the conversation is to gain a deep understanding of what’s troubling you. So, to get to this deep understanding, we explore how your issue links to your past – believing that current issues are often rooted in earlier difficulties.
The more we explore how something is how it links to the past the more we can consider its impact currently as well as what the future may hold if we make no changes. You and your therapist may investigate something once or return to it many times, as other aspects of the one thing come to light suggesting further understanding.
