What is psychotherapy anyway?
People often have questions about, and reactions to, the term "psychotherapy." For some, it might be the associations with the prefix "psycho," while for others, it might just sound too ... clinical, and intimidating.
If you're curious, or contemplating counselling and psychotherapy, read on!
Here's what psychotherapy means: "Psycho" or psychological is often used to describe the mind; it comes from the Greek word psyche, which refers to the human mind, soul or spirit.
"Therapy" comes from the word "therapeia" which refers to treatment and healing.
In a nutshell, psychotherapy is the care of the soul. It's a process of understanding ourselves - our experiences, thoughts and emotions, and finding healing for the difficulties that life inevitably brings.
I hope this brief explanation helps defuse some common misconceptions about psychotherapy. Therapy is for everyone, whether your troubles are big or small! We can all benefit from some time with a trusted person to work through life's challenges - to care for our mind and soul and find healing, purpose, meaning and hope.
