What is Therapy?
Therapy or Psychotherapy is not just visiting your therapist once a week to talk about your problems. It is a process of working together with your therapist to resolve unhealthy feelings, relationship issues, troublesome behaviours, faulty habits, irrational beliefs and/or somatic responses (sensations in the body).
Whether in individual, group, or family therapy, your relationship with your therapist is a confidential one. In essence, the goal of psychotherapy is to help you weather the storms of life with a greater sense of calmness and confidence so that you can continue to grow and evolve.
How Therapy helps
You get an opportunity to change self-destructive behaviours and habits, resolve painful feelings, improve your relationships, value yourself and much more. It can be a big step toward living the best life possible no matter what challenges you’re facing.
Take this chance… You are worth it!
A few important things to remember:
It is a process; not a quick fix. Progress is faster for those who actively participate and are willing to help themselves.
Individual therapy is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist – in a safe, caring, and confidential environment.
