Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

LONG TERM INTENSIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY

Crisis and Complex Mental Health Difficulties


At a Place to Talk About it, we pride our-self on providing specialist Psychotherapy care for individuals in Crisis and individuals who are going through complex mental health difficulties, trauma, depression and anxiety.  

Mental Health Difficulties

It is common for Mental health Service provider's to perceive complex emotional difficulties as mental illness. Subsequently, your emotional distress may have been given a label like 'Bipolar Disorder' or 'Personality Disorder' and treated with anti-psychotic medication.  At a Place to Talk About it, emotional difficulties are not perceived as an organic disease or mental health disorder. Instead, your emotional difficulties are understood as the result of one or a number of devastating experiences. This may include

  • Childhood abuse, trauma and neglect   

  • Isolation

  • Bereavement

  • Domestic violence

  • Addiction

  • Sexual abuse

  • Psychological abuse/ Gaslighting

  • The ending of a marriage/ relationship

  • Bullying

  • Physical illness

  • Loss of job/financial difficulties

Instead of focusing on symptoms, the Psychotherapist focuses upon communication, words, language and facilitating a space where emotions can be processed and new dialogue may be created.
