WHAT IS PSYCHOTHERAPY?
Psychotherapy -- also called talk therapy, therapy, or counselling -- is a process focused on helping you heal and learn more constructive ways to deal with the problems or issues within your life. It can also be a supportive process when going through a difficult period or under increased stress, such as starting a new career or going through a divorce.
Generally, psychotherapy is recommended whenever a person is grappling with a life, relationship or work issue or a specific mental health concern, and these issues are causing the individual a great deal of pain or upset for longer than a few days. There are exceptions to this general rule, but for the most part, there is no harm in going into therapy even if you're not entirely certain you would benefit from it.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
It’s understandable to be nervous about coming to counselling. No one wants to go and speak to a stranger about their inner most feelings and concerns. We understand that and try to make it as comfortable as possible. The first session is a time for you to learn more about us and for your counsellor to learn about you and provide a strategy going forward.
Your story is unique and you are the expert on your life. Therefore, in the first session you will be asked to tell your story so that your therapist can begin to understand your current situation, symptoms and your person journey. Then together you will discuss your goals and your therapist will develop a treatment plan to help you find success.
