FAQs

Do I need therapy?

Everyone goes through difficult challenges in life. While you may have been able to cope with the challenges you’ve encountered, it’s always a good idea to seek extra support when you need it.

In fact, when you realize you need a helping hand, you’re taking responsibility admirably by facing the challenges you encounter in life. Therapy will give you long – term benefits and the tools you need to overcome whatever difficulties you encounter.

How can therapy help me?

There are many benefits in participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support and help you find relief for issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, stress, and relationship problems.

Counseling is extremely valuable in managing personal growth, relationships, and the many challenges faced in daily life. By applying therapy techniques, therapists can provide different perspectives on complicated problems or even guide you to a solution.

What happens during therapy?

Therapy may be different depending on the goals for therapy and the needs of the person.

Typically speaking, we will discuss the things that are currently happening in your life, things that happened in the past that are relevant to your issue, and review the gains we’ve had from the previous session.

Ultimately, I want to help you bring what you’ve discovered or learned during therapy back into your daily life.

Medication vs. Therapy

Medication cannot solve your mental and emotional problems alone. Therapy is needed in order to address the source of your distress and behavior patterns.

Check with your medical doctor and see what’s the best treatment for you.

Will our conversations remain confidential?

Confidentiality is a key component of therapy. What you discuss in a session will not be shared with anyone else.

By law, your therapist can’t release this information without your written consent, except in the following situations:

  • The therapist suspects there is past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults, or elders.
  • The therapist suspects the client is in danger of harming themselves or has threatened to harm another person.

CBP?

Whilst Hypnotherapy works with the subconscious part of our mind, (that internal part which we’re not aware of in our day to day thinking), CBP works with the conscious part.

Thus, by offering a blend of techniques we can tackle your issues and move you towards your goals on all levels.

CBP stands for Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy and uses techniques from the field of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) which has gained a lot of positive attention and popularity recently, and for good reason.

At their heart, they both examine the interaction between people’s thoughts, behaviours and emotions. By understanding how each one influences the other, we can, in turn, assist you in creating more helpful and constructive thoughts and behaviours.

The solution-focused nature of CBP means that rather than dwelling on the problem itself, we focus on moving you towards your goal in a relatively short amount of time.

What is NLP?

Neuro Linguistic Programming NLP focuses on exploring the relationships between 3 core parts of your life; namely what you think, how you communicate, and patterns of behavior driven by your experiences, such as emotions.

The goal is to break down seemingly insurmountable issues that leave you feeling overwhelmed, into far smaller and more manageable parts of your life.

By turning each of them into a well-defined process that you can work through with the right tools, you can begin to move closer to your goals.
