Frequently Asked Questions
I Handle Things On My Own, So I Have Never Talked To Anyone About My Problems. Aren't People Who Go To Therapy Weak?
Some people may think this. However, people who ask for help know they need it and have the courage to reach out to someone. Everyone needs help at some stage in their life. You and I work together to find your strengths and reduce the influence of the problems you are having.
Is There A Difference In Talking To You Rather Than A Friend Or Family Member?
The big difference is talking to someone who has the training to facilitate the process of what you are thinking and feeling.
Can't I Just Take Medication?
Medication is effective, but does not solve problems. Medication and therapy are the best combination. In therapy, we collaborate to find your strengths so that you can achieve the goals you set for therapy.
What Do We Do In Sessions?
Each person is different with different issues and goals. I tailor my approach to your specific needs.
How long will it take?
This is not possible to say as each person’s circumstances are unique and the length of time it can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment and the factors that are driving you to seek counselling in the first place.
What Can I Do To Help With My Sessions?
Your active participation and dedication will be more than enough.
