Why Therapy?

Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.

What is therapy like?
Every therapy session is unique and caters to the specific goals of the participant(s). It is common to schedule a series of weekly sessions, where each session lasts around fifty minutes. Therapy can be short-term, focusing on a specific issue, or longer-term, addressing more complex issues or ongoing personal growth. There may be times when you are asked to take certain actions outside of the therapy sessions (homework). For therapy to be most effective active participation is necessary, both during and between sessions. People seeking psychotherapy are willing to take responsibility for their actions, work towards self-change and create greater awareness in their lives. Here are some things you can expect out of therapy:

  •   Compassion, respect and understanding

  •   Perspectives to illuminate persistent patterns and negative feelings

  •   Real strategies for enacting positive change

  •   Effective and proven techniques along with practical guidance


How can therapy help?
A number of benefits are available from participating in psychotherapy including support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies. Many people also find that counselors can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, and the hassles of daily life. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. Some of the benefits available from therapy include:

 

  • Attaining a better understanding of self, personal goals and values

  • Developing skills for improving relationships with others

  • Finding resolution to the issues or concerns that led to seeking therapy

  • Learning new ways to cope 

  • Improving communications and listening skills

  • Changing old behavior patterns and developing new ones

  • Discovering new ways to solve problems
