How can therapy help me?

A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks. Many people also find that therapists can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. Some of the benefits available from therapy include:

  • Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals and values
  • Developing skills for improving your relationships
  • Finding resolution to the issues or concerns that led you to seek therapy
  • Learning new ways to cope with stress and anxiety
  • Managing anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures
  • Improving communications and listening skills
  • Changing old behavior patterns and developing new ones
  • Discovering new ways to solve problems in your family or relationships
  • Improving your self-esteem and boosting self-confidence

What is therapy like?

Each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therefore the experience will be different depending on the individual.  In general, you can expect to discuss the current events happening in your life, your personal history relevant to your issue, or any progress or challenges you are experiencing throughout the therapeutic process.  Depending on your specific needs, therapy can be short-term, for a specific issue, or long-term, to deal with more difficult problems, patterns, or your desire for more personal development and growth.

It is important to understand that you will get more results from therapy if you actively participate in the process.  The ultimate purpose of therapy is to help you bring what you learn in session back into your life.  Therefore, beyond the work you do in therapy sessions, your therapist may suggest some things you can do outside of therapy to support your process – such as reading a pertinent book, journaling on specific topics, noting particular behaviors or taking action on your goals. People seeking psychotherapy are ready to make positive changes in their lives, are open to new perspectives and take responsibility for their lives.

How often are sessions?

Clients are typically seen on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Each session is 45 minutes long. Consistency with attending your appointments is highly encouraged, as this does help in furthering your progress while in therapy.
