What is Counselling and Psychotherapy and what can it help with?
We all need help sometimes. Having someone to talk to can make a big difference, when done in a safe, non-judgmental and compassionate environment to explore present and past experiences, where you are treated as a whole person, not a collection of symptoms.
Talking about your feelings is only part of the process, and a variety of approaches are used to help you recreate the life that you deserve. Receiving counselling involves learning new skills, building and applying tools to manage your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
Counselling can help you with many things including:
Anxiety, depression, stress
Low self-confidence and self-esteem
Communication and intimacy
Unresolved loss and grief
Chronic pain management and coping skills
Identity questions and life transitions
Emotional, relational and professional conflicts
How many sessions will I need?
Dealing with our issues, learning skills and using tools to make the necessary changes takes time. It is a process that cannot be rushed, and your first session is only the start of your journey back to health. You need to expect to come for a number of sessions, which can be weekly, biweekly or even monthly. The exact number depends on your specific circumstances and how successful you are at making changes in your life. We work with you to determine the best course of action for your individual needs.
