Do I need therapy?
Everyone goes through difficult challenges in life. While you may have been able to cope with the challenges you’ve encountered, it’s always a good idea to seek extra support when you need it. In fact, when you realize you need a helping hand, you’re taking responsibility admirably by facing the challenges you encounter in life. Therapy will give you long - term benefits and the tools you need to overcome whatever difficulties you encounter.
How can therapy help me?
There are many benefits in participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support and help you find relief for issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, stress, and relationship problems. Counseling is extremely valuable in managing personal growth, relationships, and the many challenges faced in daily life. By applying therapy techniques, therapists can provide different perspectives on complicated problems or even guide you to a solution.
What happens during therapy?
Therapy may be different depending on the goals for therapy and the needs of the person. Typically speaking, we will discuss the things that are currently happening in your life, things that happened in the past that are relevant to your issue, and review the gains we’ve had from the previous session. Ultimately, I want to help you bring what you’ve discovered or learnt during therapy back into your daily life.
Medication vs. Therapy
Medication cannot solve your mental and emotional problems alone. Therapy is needed in order to address the source of your distress and behavior patterns. Check with your medical doctor and see what’s the best treatment for you.
Will our conversations remain confidential?
Confidentiality is a key component of therapy. What you discuss in a session will not be shared with anyone else. By law, your therapist can’t release this information without your written consent, except in the following situations:
- The therapist suspects there is past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults or elders.
- The therapist suspects the client is in danger of harming themselves or has threated to harm another person.
Privacy & Policy
The relationship between a patient and a therapist is protected by law. Information can’t be disclosed without written consent, except in the following situations:
- The therapist suspects there is past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults or elders, for which the therapist is required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities.
- The therapist suspects the client is in danger of seriously harming themselves or has threated to seriously harm another person. The therapist must notify the police and the intended victim.
