Why See a Psychologist?
It is important to recognize that everyone has difficulties, suffers from distress, or feels stuck or overwhelmed at certain times in their lives. Seeing a psychologist creates an opportunity to collaborate with a professional trained in mental health, human behavior, and development to reduce stress, explore issues that impact your life, and find effective solutions which best fit you. Counseling or psychotherapy provides a safe, supportive and confidential environment; a source to turn to when you don’t want to burden other people or when you feel there’s no one available to listen. Therapy can help to provide clarity and insight, facilitate recovery from life events, deal with dysfunctional life scripts, develop new skills, or simply gain perspective from someone who is not directly involved.
Consulting a psychologist can be of benefit even for those who are not suffering from adverse symptoms, for example, those who would like to improve performance, self-confidence, communication, wellbeing and quality of life, commitment, and direction.
