How Can Private Therapy Help You
One of our psychotherapists will discuss your reasons for doing therapy and examine your personal history. This helps us establish the origins of your presenting issues.
One of our Private Therapists in Perth will help make you aware of certain dynamics or patterns in your life. Our objective is to enable you safely feel and release emotions which may be contributing to or worsening your issues. We may also challenge some of your negative and destructive behaviours or limiting belief systems.
Feel free to check out our Conditions Treated page which outlines over 30 conditions that we successfully treat.
What Happens in a Private Therapy Session
The initial couple of sessions with one of our therapists will help provide a thorough understanding of your particular situation. Our Private Psychotherapy in Perth will help establish what you are hoping to gain from therapy. The private therapist will discuss and analyse your reasons for considering therapy. The therapist will discuss your history thoroughly, covering such as aspects as your early family life (family of origin), work history and medical history. The therapist will diagnose your issues by making observations around your body structure, personality and your early life history.
Those initial sessions enable the therapist to formulate a therapy plan with you, where mutual agreement is made on the steps, objectives and goals required from the therapy. A course of action is negotiated between you and the therapist.
Normally in a session your Private Therapist specialist will ask what has happened since the last session. There may be discussion around how you are feeling, and how withheld emotions show up in your body. The therapist would show you certain grounding exercises, postures and breathwork to help ground you more in the present moment. There is a strong emphasis on paying attention to your body sensations, images or emotions that manifest in the session. A significant amount of your progress relates to the therapeutic relationship built between you and your therapist.
How Long Should I Do Private Therapy
In most cases, we recommend that as a new client, you would consider booking in for a minimum of six sessions. Some clients get immediate benefit and insights from attending the first session of Private Therapy. In other cases, it may take a little longer for our psychotherapy techniques to take effect and for you to feel change and benefit. After the initial session, you can decide whether you wish to continue or not. Short term psychotherapy may last only a few months. More in depth self discovery may likely last for a couple of years.
