People often come to therapy with concerns about one or more aspects of their lives, or with feelings of unhappiness or dissatisfaction.
CAPT psychotherapists are trained to work with you on a variety of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, substance abuse, stress, problems in your relationships, family troubles and phobias. You can also find a therapist who specializes in therapy for children, adults, families or couples, or issues specific to gender, sexuality, culture or religion.
Psychodynamic therapy is a way to explore thoughts, sensations, feelings and ways of relating that might currently be outside of your awareness, and that contribute to the difficulties you currently face.
The relationship you and your therapist build is very important. Through a client-centered approach where you and the therapist work together, you may find that the ways you feel and think about yourself and react to others can shift and that new responses are possible. New perspectives can emerge, leading to the opportunity for long-term change.
