FAQ

People enter therapy for various reasons including managing emotional distress like depression and anxiety, improving relationships, adapting to major life transitions, and enhancing overall well-being. If you're seeking support to navigate life's challenges or wish to grow personally, therapy could be beneficial for you.
Therapy is personalized to meet each client's unique needs. In general, sessions might involve discussing recent life events, personal history relevant to your issues, and progress made. Therapy can be short-term for specific issues or longer-term for more complex patterns and personal growth. Regular sessions are typically held weekly and active participation is crucial for effective therapy.
Absolutely. Confidentiality is a fundamental part of therapy. By law, therapists must protect your privacy and cannot share the content of your sessions with anyone without your explicit consent. Only in extreme cases, like threats to safety, might certain information need to be disclosed, and even then, it's handled with utmost care to maintain your privacy.
Seeking therapy doesn't mean you can't handle problems on your own; it means you're taking a proactive step towards enhancing your mental health. Therapy provides professional insights and strategies that can lead to lasting, positive changes, offering a different perspective that might be hard to achieve on your own.
Therapy can provide support, improve your ability to cope with stress, enhance your communication skills, increase your emotional resilience, and provide you with strategies to manage symptoms of mental health conditions. It's a collaborative effort that can lead to significant improvements in your overall quality of life and mental well-being.
Medication and therapy serve different purposes but can be complementary. Medication primarily treats the symptoms of mental health issues, while therapy addresses the causes and teaches coping strategies. Some individuals benefit from a combination of both. Decisions about medication should always be made with a qualified healthcare provider.
