The therapeutic alliance that is created between the client and the therapist is the primary dynamic which stimulates the healing process. After trust is built, clients feel confident to talk about more important issues. For some, the talking itself is the key to healing. Knowing you are valued in the context of your life story encourages the freedom to explore more difficult areas.
For some people in New York, additional creative healing methods may be helpful. These may include: working with clay, creative imagery, non-verbal dialoging, emotional and relational sculpting, or journaling. Be sure to talk about your interest in these.
The first and the most important thing in psychotherapy is finding the right therapist NYC for your specific needs. Psychotherapy is accomplished in a variety of modalities.
Individual therapy often helps to contain a crisis, identify feelings, enhance awareness, promote personal responsibility and change, and helps to resolve unfinished business.
Relationship therapy can enhance communication skills, resolve conflict, identify common goals, promote healthy boundaries and teach negotiation.
Family therapy helps by identifying the workings of the “system” which operates to keep the family from changing to a new style, and helps the individuals within the system to learn respect and empathy as they find they can get their needs met in a new way.
Group therapy provides an atmosphere of commonality in a dynamic setting of exploration in which members benefit from their own and others’ contributions. Therapist has facilitated therapy groups for Incest Survivors, Adult Children of Alcoholics, Adults Who Were Molested As Children and Growth Groups for Creative Individuals.
For some there is trauma in childhood. It may exhibit itself as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addiction or some other difficulty in adult years. It may have come between an individual and their spiritual wholeness. The goal in psychotherapy is a full range of expression with responsibility and authenticity, and relationships with others that feel rewarding and fulfilling.
