I'm a girl of 15, living in Italy. I've been seeing a psychologist for the last 6/7 months- he just recently told me that from september we will be shifting from "consultation" to "psychotherapy". To date we've been taking a few tests: Rorschach's, and T.A.T. And talking about some of my issues, from self harm, depression, suicidal tendencies, to my issues with relationships, bonding and autoisolation.
What will change with psychotherapy? WHAT is psychotherapy?
I don't think there will be any medicinals or diagnoses- he says he's against those kinds of treatments.
What happens in psychotherapy?
Could you please add some exaples? Because I KNOW we will be working on my issues, I can't really immagine HOW we could do that.
