In psychotherapy you will work with your therapist to explore, in depth, what is troubling you and enable you to understand yourself better. Your therapist will not judge you or tell you what to do, but will work with you to find ways of making choices or changes that you feel will improve things.
Psychotherapy is used to treat a wide range of difficulties including low mood, depression, anxiety, self-harm and eating difficulties as well as the impact of trauma and abuse.
You will attend regular 50-minute sessions (usually weekly) for a set period of time which will be agreed between you and your therapist. This may be just a few sessions or regular appointments over several months.
Psychotherapy at Open Door is mainly provided by Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists who are trained to work with young people aged 12-25. We also have adult psychotherapists and counselling psychologists experienced in working with young people.
