What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is primarily a talk-based therapy and is intended to help people improve and maintain their mental health and well-being. Psychotherapists work with individuals, couples and families in individual and group settings. Psychotherapy involves the therapist and clients working together to bring about positive change in the client’s thinking, feeling, behaviour and social functioning. Individuals usually seek psychotherapy when they have thoughts, feelings, moods and behaviours that are adversely affecting their day-to-day lives, relationships, and the ability to enjoy life (CRPO, 2020).
Benefits, Risks & Confidentiality
Guiding You On the Path of Self-Healing
Benefits and Risks:
Therapy sessions carry both benefits and risks. Therapy sessions can significantly reduce the amount of distress someone is feeling, improve relationships, and/or resolve other specific issues. However, these improvements and any “cures” cannot be guaranteed for any condition due to the many variables that affect these therapy sessions. Experiencing uncomfortable feelings, discussing unpleasant situations and/or aspects of your life are considered risks of therapy sessions.
Confidentiality & Limitations:
Everything you say in therapy remains confidential. However, there are limitations to confidentiality, which include: If you are going to harm yourself, if you are going to harm another person, particularly a child. If there is a legal process initiated and we are subpoenaed. Additionally, if you provide permission to share information with another third party or service provider (e.g. your family doctor, psychiatrist, etc.).
