It can be hard to know which kind of therapy in London would be most effective for your needs and what you can expect from therapy in general.

Some people want to explore their problems by talking about them, some people want to learn methods of understanding and lessening difficulties such as anxiety, whilst others want to improve the relationship with their partner. These are some of the reasons why people engage in therapy and having a brief understanding of what you can expect from the most common forms of psychotherapy can be helpful.
