WHAT HAPPENS IN THERAPY
The purpose of therapy is twofold: firstly, to identify what is hindering a fulfilling and purposeful life, and secondly, to develop a plan to move towards the desired life. This may involve modifying certain behaviors or activities, gaining insight into how thoughts and emotions influence actions, or improving relationships with others. In certain cases, such as anxiety disorders or depression, evidence-based treatment approaches may be particularly effective. Through therapy, you can learn new strategies to cope with challenges and make positive changes in your life.
Establishing a respectful and collaborative relationship with your therapist is crucial for the success of therapy. To determine if we would be a good fit, you may want to consider scheduling a brief phone call before booking your first session. With years of experience working with individuals from diverse backgrounds, I am continuously learning from each person I work with.
While discussing problems can provide valuable insights into a person's experiences, true progress comes from a willingness to try new approaches. Change can be uncomfortable at first, but being open to flexibility in thinking and action can lead to more successful outcomes in therapy and in life.
