Psychology

We all face life difficulties and are confronted with challenges in our personal, social and professional life. Family conflict, relationship difficulties, communication problems and issues with self-esteem can affect our ability to enjoy life and prevent us from reaching our full potential. Sometimes we are dealing with our problems ineffectively and employ maladaptive coping strategies and defence mechanisms that do not work. This does not mean we have a mental illness; we just need a little support and guidance to deal with our life situation.

The aim of a psychologist is to help you overcome psychological obstacles, develop life balance, the acquisition of new relational and communication skills, the development of self-confidence, self-esteem and the promotion of health and well-being.

What is Psychological Therapy?

Psychological Therapy is an individual, empathic and personalised treatment that has been empirically proven to work. Therapy is tailored for your own specific needs and is usually a combination of treatment modalities and methods.

The process of talking, answering questions, explaining things to someone else, and describing our experience helps us to clarify our thoughts and feelings and increase our self-awareness. It can help us gain a different perspective, increase our awareness of the sometimes unhelpful thinking and behavioural patterns that we can be stuck in, and when we hear ourselves say what we want, it helps motivate us to act on it. After all, we all have the solution right there in our subconscious mind, and psychologists are trained to ask the right questions that enable people to find the right answer within themselves.

Sometimes we need a little more help when we struggle with anxiety, depression or other mental health issues. Psychologists have six years of university training in which every mental condition has been studied and there is a plethora of strategies that can help people overcome those trying times.

And did you know...

It is a sign of good mental health, and very liberating, to acknowledge that we are not perfect.
