What is Psychotherapy?

One in three people in Ireland will struggle at some stage with mental distress. ‘Psychotherapy is an independent scientific discipline which not only focuses on treating and resolving symptoms but also takes into consideration aspects of the inner world of which the person may be unaware so as to help them understand and change deep, often unconscious, emotional and relationship problems. It covers a range of approaches and methods based on a well-established body of theory, methodology and research.’ (Irish Council for Psychotherapy, 2017).

Does Psychotherapy Work?

‘Psychotherapy is an effective intervention for a wide range of mental health problems in people of all ages. Research indicates the average success rate for treated cases ranges from 65 to 72%.’ (Irish Council for Psychotherapy, 2017).
