Psychotherapy can be one of the most transformative experiences in a person's life. Understanding one’s own history and its impact on the present in partnership with a trusted and skillful therapist is an important investment in one’s future. Soho Parenting's therapists are deeply committed to helping their clients to live more peaceful, connected and meaningful lives.
Navigating the challenges and possibilities of life in your twenties can sometimes be daunting. Career choices, sexual and romantic partnerships, financial responsibilities and achieving more independence from your family are complicated processes at best. Since we are living in an era of increased anxiety and pressure these milestones are even more complex. Psychotherapy gives you the tools for managing the stresses of life, deepens your self-knowledge, and helps you craft the life you want.
Individual psychotherapy can help you to understand the emotional and behavioral patterns that show up in your work life, friendships, and romantic partnerships. Some of these dynamics may be getting in the way of how you want to live your life. Through the process of therapy, you gain insight into the origins of these patterns, heal from past pain and develop a greater sense of self-compassion. Individual psychotherapy also addresses issues of anxiety and depression which are so prevalent today.
Many couples wait too long to get help or have found traditional couples’ therapy lacking. Marital therapy at Soho Parenting is based on the teachings of the Relational Life Institute and informed by the philosophy of the Internal Family Systems model of psychotherapy. Couples in therapy come to understand the emotional triggers that create distance and resentment. Partners learn honest, direct, and compassionate communication skills which can lead to a more loving connection and a deeper understanding of each themselves and each other.
Some of the most rewarding work we do here at Soho Parenting is with adults and their families of origin. Intergenerational family therapy can make dramatic and long-lasting changes in relationships between family members. The therapist acts as mediator and guide, and with compassion and humor, can facilitate the kind of respectful speaking and listening that is necessary for change in these adult relationships.
