We may all experience depression, anxiety, or another psychological problems at any given time. Some of us may need help coping with a serious illness, losing weight, or stopping smoking. While some of us struggle to cope with relationship troubles, job loss, the death of a loved one, stress, substance abuse, or other issues. And these problems can often become debilitating.
I can be there to help you work through such problems. Psychotherapy can help people live healthier, and more productive lives. In psychotherapy, I apply scientifically validated procedures to help you develop healthier habits which replace the unhealthy ones.
Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and a psychologist. Grounded in dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, neutral, and nonjudgmental. We will work together to identify and change the thought and behavior patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best.
When should you consider psychotherapy?
Well, only you can answer this question. However, there are some signs that can tell you that you might benefit from therapy.
Signs that you could benefit from therapy include:
- Your problems don’t seem to get better despite your efforts and help from family and friends
- Your problems negatively affect your work/school or everyday activities
- You are experiencing changes or disruptions in sleep or appetite
- You are still feeling the effect of a trauma or grieving
- You want to understand the roots of your patterns and feelings but don’t know where to start
What is Psychotherapy?
We also offer Psychological Counselling
Differing from therapy, counselling is aimed to help you in achieving personal goals and removing obstacles to your true potential. The topics of counselling are not necessarily negative or distressful, they may be about a life choice, developing skills, and motivation. Counselling may also serve as an education session about good practices for mental well-being, such as coping with daily stress, dealing with criticism, tips on sleep hygiene etc. Contrary to therapy, I can share advices. Contact me for a 15-minute phone consultation if you have questions.
