Psychotherapy and Counselling
Psychotherapy, or Counselling is a powerful technique for the treatment of mild psychiatric symptoms or for an individual who simply wishes to overcome an aspect of their life (social, occupational, marital, sexual etc.) with which they are struggling.
Benefits of therapy include improved interpersonal relationships, stress reduction, improved self-esteem, improved coping skills in dealing with difficult situations, and a deeper insight into your personality, your development, your habits, and relationships. With that insight, comes the capacity to change.
I often use a combination/eclectic approaches in treating a client. Sometimes psychotherapy alone will suffice. Often , in more complicated cases, a combination of psychotherapy and medication is optimal. In such a case, I can either treat a client with combination of psychotherapy, and med management, or med management only, while the client receives therapy from another mental health professional.
