Individual Psychotherapy

Many individuals, at some point in their lives, struggle with emotional difficulties, which may affect their ability to function adequately. Therapy can provide a consistent and safe space for the person to develop his/her potential for emotional understanding. The purpose of psychotherapy is not only to rectify the problems we struggle with but also to allow a person to utilize their full potential.

The kinds of emotional distress which brings an individual into therapy often include the following:

  • Low mood, feelings of emptiness and a sense of dissatisfaction

  • Fears and anxieties about the future

  • Experiencing difficulties in making or sustaining relationships or being repeatedly drawn into unhappy ones

  • Low self-esteem and lack of confidence

  • Difficulty communicating with others or feeling frequently misunderstood

  • Finding it hard to come to terms with a life change

  • Suffering the pain of bereavement or loss

  • Need for the healing of past traumas

  • Difficulty controlling feelings of anger

  • Unhealthy coping mechanisms (i.e., overeating, substance abuse, overspending, etc.)
