Anxiety? Depression? Anger?
Hurting? Not coping?
Psychotherapy takes commitment and patience
However, it may surprise you how quickly you begin to feel better!
Maybe you have been struggling with things for quite a while, perhaps even years. Relational tensions may have become estrangement or conflict; unhappiness may have sunk into depression; worries and concerns may have escalated into anxiety. Your emotions may be running out of control or they may be shut down. You may also recognise you are using unhealthy ways to cope with problems without addressing them.
While these issues are challenging, many people surprised how quickly they feel better once they engage in therapy. Often in the process people realise that there are areas of life that they want to address, understand, and properly resolve. Such exploratory psychotherapy is likely to require some months of therapy.
Sometimes problems run deeper. You may have struggled with something all your life. The symptoms may be obvious such as anxiety, depression or anger. However, they may be more subtle and persistent, perhaps with a sense of something missing. Examples of concerns include sex, intimacy, identity, spirituality, sexuality or feeling of emptiness. Maybe you have a diagnosed mental health condition or a substance abuse issue. Maybe there are experiences from your early life that continue to haunt you. Maybe there are patterns in your life that just keep repeating themselves, particularly in relationships.
All or team are registered psychotherapists and appreciate the patience, commitment and courage of addressing longstanding and painful issues. Psychotherapy offers a unique depth of compassion and understanding into detrimental deep-seated emotional, relational and psychological dynamics. Such depth psychotherapy is likely to require months or even years of therapy.
