Esther Newall Psychotherapy in Ealing, West London

What is Relational Psychotherapy

Relational psychotherapy is a powerful, effective approach to healing chronic emotional, psychological, and/or relational distress. Relational psychotherapy is based on the following principles:

  • Emotional well-being depends on having satisfying and trusting relationships with others.
  • Emotional distress is often rooted in experiences of relationships, past and present, which have the power to damage and deaden the self.
  • The relational therapist tries to understand the client's unique self-experience in their social/relationship context and to respond with empathy and genuine presence.
  • Together, client and therapist create a new relationship which is supportive, strengthening, and enlivening for the client.
  • Within this secure relationship, the client can safely explore, and then find freedom from, the powerful effects of destructive relationships, past and present.
