Psychotherapy is a process where we work together using proven scientific procedures to help you develop a healthier emotional well being. In therapy we take a look at your thought patterns, coping skills and information from your past to guide us in our understanding. Erase the image you have in your head from the movies, therapy is an interactive process where we work together to tackle the internal systems that are holding you back.
If your living with chronic sadness or excessive worry (or both), therapy is good place to start. Only a mental health professional can diagnose you with a mental health condition; but you know yourself better than anyone else does.
If you feel the rut you are in is looking hopeless and bleak and no matter what you do to better yourself, the feelings remain, then it is a good time to seek professional support.
