Looking for a specialist psychotherapist in London?
Perhaps, it is worth considering what sort of psychotherapist you are looking for. There are lots of diferent types.
Psychotherapy is often a lengthy process: during the course, the client expresses his thoughts on present day issues, he talks about his feelings and the therapist will look at how his past has affected his life—particularly in relation to his childhood. The client is encouraged to drift from one thought to the next—a technique known as ‘free association’.
During this process, he gains considerable insight into his life, and he will often find conflicts or forbidden thoughts that, when analyze, have a releaving effect. He may begin to remove or shift unwanted repression, and this, in turn, helps the ego to deal with difficult scenarios in a more appropriate fashion. The psychotherapist job is to help the client to acknowledge and unpack these feelings.
Dr David Kraft is a skilled psychotherapist who also uses an approach known as psychodynamic psychotherapy. This process falls within the remit of integrative psychotherapy. Psychodynamic psychotherapy treatment is often a much shorter process.
Dr Kraft says that, often, clients who come for therapy want to be better in the shortest possible time. They also want to feel that they are improving straight away—they don’t want to be in therapy for years. He, therefore, uses strategic psychotherapy in order to faciliate change in the shortest possible time. Hypnotherapy can be used to quicken and enhance this process.
Can I improve straight away?
Yes. Dr Kraft has had a great deal of experience working with individuals who have needed urgent attention; sometimes, clients feel better after one or two sessions. It is the support that they are given that helps them to lead their lives in a healthy way. They begin to be able to help, and take care of, themselves. Dr David Kraft believes that constant, reliable support is the key to psychotherapy. Some people thrive because of their weekly psychotherapy sessions.
How do I choose the right psychotherapist in central London?
Psychotherapists must have had therapy themselves: they must have had the experience themselves in order to empathize with their clients. When you book a session with a psychotherapist, it is important that you book a few sessions to see whether you feel comfortable in that setting. Trust is extremely important: you must trust your therapist before you embark on your journey—however long or short that might be. The best psychotherapists are the ones that let you decide how frequently you attend sessions. You must be in control of your psychotherapy if you want to be in control of your life!
