Sometimes life can present itself to us with a sudden change that can leave us numb or preoccupied, stressed or emotionally bent. Sometimes we would like to talk to release the pressure we feel but we either do not want to be a burden on others or perhaps we feel we have nobody to talk to.
This is when a psychologist could help you overcome your emotional state and its causes. A psychologist can support you to make the necessary decisions to improve your personal wellbeing and deal with whatever is holding you back in life.
Trained in counselling skills but also holding degrees in psychology, counselling psychologists have a more scientific understanding of the human mind behaviour compared to a counsellor or psychotherapist. Unlike psychiatrists, though, counselling psychologists do not prescribe medication. Psychologists work across a diverse range of emotional health issues and significant life events including anxiety, stress, depression, relationships, work/career, self-esteem, anger, eating disorders, trauma, bereavement, phobias, addiction, OCD, sexual problems and self-development.
If you decide you could benefit from talking to one of the psychologists your process will begin with a general consultation. You can discuss your issues and background history with your therapist, establish the focus of your treatment, and decide with them how many sessions you would benefit from. You will then normally meet your therapist on a weekly basis. The relationship between you and your psychologist is an important part of your therapy being effective. Here at the Wholefullness Practice we are committed to creating a safe and supportive environment for you to talk about your issues.
