What is psychotherapy?
IntraQuest Community’s well-being and psycho-therapeutic services can provide you with the space you need, away from everyday life, to explore your difficulties, understand how they came about and establish ways in which to move forward from them. The counselling relationship is unique, in that your therapist will be completely focussed on you for the time you are together; interested only in what is happening within your life and your emotional world. Our counselling services are collaborative (working with you, not doing to you) and always encourage you to work at your own pace. The journey is not always easy, in fact for a short time whilst issues are initially uncovered, life can feel a little more difficult – a bit like exposing a sore wound to the fresh air, it is sometimes more painful whilst the healing process begins. However therapy can be extremely rewarding, helping you to make sense of what’s happening, feel valued within your difficulties and eventually empowering you to walk forward more whole.
The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) use the following definition..
“Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing.”
BACP, 2012, Counselling Definition (accessed July 2012)
What types of Well-being services do IntraQuest Community offer?
There are many modes of therapy available in the UK, all of which will have some benefit to some individuals. However treatment types vary in their effectiveness as much as we humans vary in what we respond to; not all types will suit all people. Before you embark on a therapeutic journey, it is important to have information to hand around what type of counselling is being offered and which you feel most suited to.
IntraQuest offer a variety of therapy approaches to suit individual needs – to help you decide which is most suitable for you click on the menu to read about each model.
