People may experience all kinds of symptoms that can hinder the management of their daily lives. For example: feeling overwhelmed, suffering loss or grief, having relationship problems, having to make difficult decisions, or needing assistance in parenting. A psychologist is a non-judgemental listener who can provide a different perspective on your problems. Psychological therapy can be a relatively simple process with good results.
Life has its ups and downs. It’s realistic to expect that you may need help when times are tough – when you don’t feel confident about your direction and when it seems impossible to deal with the daily obstacles life poses.
If you feel that you are not coping with all that is going on in your life, therapy can help. Research shows counselling is effective in treating a range of psychological, emotional and behavioural issues.
Psychologists use a collaborative supportive approach to provide interventions designed to change patterns of functioning that are not helpful. This involves understanding your past and current situation and working with you to find solutions; including learning new skills and ways of managing any symptoms that are causing distress.
