Psychotherapy treatment can be very rewarding but also has its challenges. It is very likely that you will experience a range of strong emotions and feelings, both negative and positive, during the course of psychotherapy treatment. Dr. Davis believes that it is necessary to access these emotions and feelings in order to achieve a successful outcome. Additionally, he believes that a positive outcome in psychotherapy treatment is most likely to occur when you are committed and take an active role in the process. Dr. Davis believes in the concept that every person has the capacity to lead an authentic life and stay connected to their "true self". However, due to traumatic experiences and/or empathic failures from our environment (e.g., immediate family, school and society) people tend to adopt an inauthentic or maladaptive ways of being in the world and develop a "false self", and in doing so also experience emotional pain, conflict and turmoil. As a result of these circumstances, Dr. Davis attempts to help people regain access to their "true self" and encourages them to lead more authentic ways of being in interpersonal relationships and navigating through the world.
