Psychotherapy addresses personal difficulties. It allows clients to openly and confidentially talk about their concerns and feelings with a trained professional.
Almost all types of psychotherapy involve developing a therapeutic relationship, communicating and creating a dialogue, and working to overcome problematic or distressing thoughts, feelings or behaviours. Psychotherapy aims to increase an individual’s sense of wellbeing, relationships and overall daily functioning.
There are many issues that psychotherapy can help with, such as: anxiety, depression, ADHD/ADD, school issues, relationships, parent/child conflict, self-esteem, self-harm, substance use/addictions, mood disorders, anger management, sexuality, coping skills, behaviour disorders, adjustment disorders, bullying, social skills and emotional dysregulation.
Sessions are tailored to meet each client’s individual and unique needs.
