- the power of talking
Psychotherapy is a type of therapy used to treat a broad range of emotional problems and mental health conditions. Clients at the Phoenix Individual Retreat work with trained therapists who guide them to look deeper into their problems and worries, as well as dealing with troublesome habits and behaviours. Psychotherapy is essentially a talking therapy, although depending upon the client’s individual needs it may also incorporate other methods– for example, art, music, drama and movement.

Working with their therapists, clients are able to discuss their feelings about themselves and other people, particularly family and those close to them. In some cases, we might suggest that couples or families engage in joint therapy sessions together. You will meet with your therapists on most days during your stay at the Phoenix Individual Retreat. As qualified mental health professionals, they are trained to listen to a person's problems to try to find out what's causing them and help them find a solution. As well as listening and discussing important issues with you, they will also be able to suggest strategies for resolving problems and, if necessary, to help you change your attitudes and behaviour. In some cases, they will teach specific skills to help you tolerate painful emotions, manage relationships more effectively, or improve behaviour.

As with all aspects of your treatment at Phoenix Individual Retreat, sessions are completely confidential. This means you can trust your therapist with information that may be personal or embarrassing. This often involves sharing things you may never have discussed before which, in itself, can be an intensely powerful and liberating process.

There are several different types of psychotherapy used at the Phoenix Individual Retreat and these include:

  • Psychodynamic (psychoanalytic) psychotherapy – a psychoanalytic therapist will encourage you to say whatever is going through your mind. This will help you become aware of hidden meanings or patterns in what you do or say that may be contributing to your problems.
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) – a form of psychotherapy that examines how beliefs and thoughts are linked to behaviour and feelings. It teaches skills that retrain your behaviour and style of thinking to help you deal with stressful situations.
  • Humanistic therapies – encourage you to think about yourself more positively and aim to improve your self-awareness.
  • Cognitive analytical therapy (CAT) – uses methods from both psychodynamic psychotherapy and CBT to work out how your behaviour causes problems, and how to improve it through self-help and experimentation.
  • Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) – looks at the way an illness can be triggered by events involving relationships with others, such as bereavements, disputes or relocation. It helps you cope with the feelings involved, as well as work out coping strategies.
  • Family and couple (systemic) therapy – therapy with other members of your family that aims to help you work out problems together.
