Are you looking for psychotherapy and counselling in Colchester? Philippe Jacquet & Associates can help you through a holistic and integrated approach.
The Basics of Psychotherapy
Many people are nervous or anxious when they think about psychotherapy. At Philippe Jacquet & Associates, clients will find their way to an emotionally safe and comfortable place from their first appointment.
There are many different therapeutic models in psychotherapy, but all models focus on a relationship between the professional and the client that allows for deep introspection and the exploration of very personal issues.
Talk therapy is designed to provide the client and therapist with the opportunity to go back in time and explore how negative thoughts developed. Often, this starts with dysfunctional families, but it can also be caused by trauma, the breakup of a relationship, or mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Through psychotherapy, which is typically a weekly appointment for the initial period of treatment, clients can get a clear understanding of the negative thoughts that are driving their behaviours in the present. This is true for addictions, anxiety and depression, relationship disorders, and problems for children with disabilities, which are negatively affecting the life of a child, teen or adult.
The natural outcome of this enhanced understanding is to become more of a positive coping strategy. The psychotherapist and the client work together to create a new life.
What psychotherapy treatment is available in Colchester?
Our private psychiatrists offer a range of treatments to address a multitude of conditions including, but not limited to, eating disorders, stress, and anxiety.
We take an integrative approach to therapy in our Colchester branch, using a mixture of counselling, art therapy, body work, and more to get the best results for our patients. Usually, we find that this combination of approaches work because we can look at the issue under different lenses and from different perspectives to understand it better.
Naturally, this takes some time to find out what works and what doesnít, so we canít say that after a six-week course, youíll be magically cured. In fact, we tend not to give these things a time limit at all because we find that unhelpful to the treatment process. It really comes down to the age-old question of whether we want something done fast or done right and, especially in terms of mental health, we should always prioritise doing something right, rather than going too fast.
Counselling at Philippe Jacquet & Associates
Part of being human is dealing with complicated and complex issues in our life. For anyone, at any time, there may be situations that are more difficult to manage on our own. In most cases, these issues are triggers that bring up issues from our past and drive our behaviour.
To make it even more complicated, it is very common, as we are experiencing these thoughts, to be unaware of their origins or their impact on our lives today. Through psychotherapy, it is possible to unlock those hidden beliefs and behaviours and make positive, healthy choices for the present and the future.
As an internationally recognized psychotherapist, Philippe Jacquet works with clients of all ages who are seeking to change their thoughts and behaviours from negative and destructive to positive and effective. Utilizing a range of different therapeutic methods, the professionals at Philippe Jacquet & Associates take a holistic and integrated approach to the treatment of each client, working on the whole person and creating a balance that is compassionate and highly effective.
