Psychology

This practice addresses the social and emotional concerns people may experience at work, school, family or in their own personal lives.

When do you know you need psychological counseling?

Contrary to popular myths, you don’t need to be “crazy”, at your wits’ end, or on the verge of a breakdown to need psychological counseling. It can be as simple as feeling “off”, feeling like you’re stuck in a rut, or undergoing a major life event.

Another myth is that just because you’re facing mental pressure or uncontrollable emotions right now, that doesn’t mean you’re in for long years of therapy.

Instead of muddling through life and trying to “work through” our rut or depression, we can seek out the listening ear of an unbiased, caring professional, who provides a safe space where we can talk without judgement. In fact, studies have shown that counseling patients feel better mentally after eight to 10 visits.

Psychologists also provide psychological assessment and diagnosis, and treatment for more severe psychological symptoms patients experience.

 

When should you seek counselling?

Improve mental health

With the daily grind and a need to maintain a strong front, what is needed is a safe space for patients to open up about problems they’re facing in life

Identity development

We may be struggling with pressures, social roles, even our sexuality. Talking about issues to an unbiased professional, in a safe environment, helps give us clarity

Distress or trauma

Major loss, a traumatic incident or a life-changing event can cause pain which, the earlier we talk to someone about it, the sooner we can learn to cope
