Therapy can give you support, validation, coping skills, and strategies to change your perspective or your behaviours. It can give you a better understanding of yourself and your relationships. It can give you greater peace of mind and help you tolerate difficult feelings and situations. Psychotherapists help clients facilitate their own healing process. They provide feedback, guidance and psycho-education, rather than advice or answers.
I moved my practice online at the beginning of the pandemic, using a secure video conferencing platform. I will be staying online for client convenience and accessibility (residents of Ontario). Occasional in-person days TBD in 2022.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-400-2261. I make every effort to return your message within one business day. Booking your complimentary 20-minute consult call is the first step.
It really depends. For some, a short period is all that's needed and for others, therapy begins a process that can take years. Therapy is most effective when you are willing to take it beyond the time spent with your therapist and into your daily life.
In the beginning, once a week is recommended to create a foundation, followed by biweekly or less often. Some people start and maintain biweekly and that works well. Scheduling often evolves over time.
