“The principle aim of psychotherapy is not to transport one to an impossible state of happiness, but to help the client acquire steadfastness and patience in the face of suffering.”
— C.G. Jung
Psychotherapy is a general term referring to therapeutic interaction or treatment contracted between a trained Mental Health Professional and an individual, family, couple, or group. The challenges addressed are psychological and relational in nature and of no specific kind or degree, but rather depend on the client as well as the training and expertise of the practitioner.
Psychotherapy aims to increase the individual’s sense of his/her own well-being.
Psychotherapists employ a range of philosophies, techniques, and interventions that are designed to improve the mental health of a client and to improve their interactions and relationships.
