Prof Martin Milton, Psychologist specialising in Psychotherapy.
Psychology and psychotherapy offer a way to try and help you understand emotional difficulties so that they make sense and this, in itself, can provide relief for people. Psychological difficulties take a number of forms. Stress, anxiety, depression and health anxiety are just some of them.
Psychotherapy is usually undertaken in face to face mode, but more recently, as people have travelled more and schedules become more packed, remote or online sessions have been found to be helpful too. During the pandemic many people are finding this is the best way to manage social distancing and still undertake their therapy.
Therapy is useful to explore ways to overcome the difficulties or to minimise the effects they have on your everyday life. This may feel particularly difficult during the current health crisis.
