What We Do
A psychotherapeutic session typically is held once a week for about 50 to 60 minutes where both the person and psychotherapist are actively involved in working towards mutually agreed upon goals.
What is Psychotherapy ?
“Psychotherapy is the informed and intentional application of clinical methods and interpersonal stances derived from established psychological principles for the purpose of assisting people to modify their behaviours, cognitions, emotions, and/or other personal characteristics in directions that the participants deem desirable” (Norcross, 1990, p. 218-220 ).
Psychotherapy is a collaborative process of talking with a trained professional (who has a Master’s or higher degree in Counselling or Clinical Psychology), for the intended purpose of experiencing growth, balance and enhancing one’s quality of life. The interaction and interpersonal processes within psychotherapy helps people gain insight, rediscover aspects of themselves, find support for their struggles, and find alternative perspectives for their experiences.
A psychotherapeutic session typically is held once a week for about 60 minutes, where both the person and psychotherapist are actively involved in working towards mutually agreed upon goals. The environment of the sessions is confidential, safe and respectful.
Types of psychotherapy offered
Psychotherapy can be conducted for an individual, family, couple, or group,
depending on the nature of concerns and issues. There are also therapists who work specifically with adolescents and children.
At Unalome, the following types of psychotherapy are offered:
Adult Individual Therapy
for individuals above 18years, one-on-one sessions are available to help support growth, regain a sense of balance and wellbeing through the alleviation of symptoms such as (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, stress.
here therapy focuses on the emotions, thoughts and behaviours of couples in relationships and in the broader environment in which they function.
Child and Adolescent Therapy
with a focus on healthy development, this therapeutic and safe environment supports children and adolescents, and therefore families with the best possible clinical care based on psychological science.
using a systems framework, this form of therapy focuses on both the understanding and the intervention in relational systems between members of a family, to promote growth and functioning.
This form of therapy places an emphasis on the healing possibilities of a group on individual group members, all of whom share common struggles and who are open to the potential of growth.
Interactive and Process Oriented Workshops
The Unalome staff is proficient in training and workshops. We can provide a wide range of workshops to schools, corporates and other educational institutions based on their needs.
