Psychotherapy draws on the thoughts and feelings we have about past and present relationships. This includes the most important relationship: the one we have with our self. Psychotherapy seeks insights into how we think and feel through exploring unconscious as well as conscious meanings.
The triangular shape of the Greek letter delta - ∆ - represents the way in which we seek to link three parts of experience: the past, the present, and that of the therapy itself. This is a central part of Open Ended psychotherapy. The sixteen week Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) programme follows similar principles but the focus is largely on current relationships.
The aim of both types of therapy is to help you to gain insight into your self and to lead a fuller and less troubled life. If you have not sought therapy before, and perhaps if you have, then it is important to try to approach it with an open mind. Your experience of therapy and its meaning for you will be uniquely yours and may be quite different from that of others.
