Paula Owen, Blue Mountains Therapies - Psychotherapy



Counselling & Psychotherapy sessions offer a safe and professional space for people to explore their own private struggles and invest in their psychological and emotional wellbeing. Everybody experiences difficulties and hardships at different times in their life. Often people will try to solve these challenging life experiences on their own. If these efforts have not resolved a painful life experience in a good enough way, then people usually try and find a professional therapist for a period of time.

People may book in for a few Counselling sessions to talk over some personal difficulties in their life and apply some strategies they may not have thought of before.Finding out what has not previously worked for the individual, couple or family and applying constructive and diverse strategies is an important part of the counselling sessions. 

Clients also have the option to transition to medium & longer term Psychotherapy for a period of time commonly ranging from 3 months to 12 months. These periods of time provide real life integration, understanding & change to the hardships and heartaches being addressed. 

Longer term Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis incorporates working with deeper layers of an individuals psychological patterns for long term change. Includes working with dreams. Suitable for those who have done previous Psychotherapy work.  Minimum investment 12 months. 

Psychotherapy and Counselling provides people with a non judgemental, confidential, quality time & place where they are able to be heard, and resourced with a wide range of constructive options to take into their real life.
