About Therapy 

Psychological Consultations can help people cope, express themselves, better understand themselves and others, detect and process traumas, find solutions, resolve problems, adapt to changes and new environments, develop a plan of actions, become content, activate their inner resources, learn or develop social skills, and the list goes on. It comes in many different forms and approaches in accordance with the wide range of issues it is aimed to resolve. 

Depending on the nature of your concern, it can be short or long term process. Sessions for individuals are provided on a one-to-one basis. Sessions can also be provided for couples and families. Sessions can also be conducted in a group setting where members of the group share similar issues.

'Psychotherapy is one of the 'talking therapies'. It can help people gain insight into their difficulties or distress, establish a greater understanding of their motivation, enable them to find more appropriate ways of coping and bring about changes in their thinking and behaviour.' [4]

Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their well-being. All discussions that take place between a counsellor and a client are treated with respect and discretion. An agreement is usually made during the first session about confidentiality. [1]

Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of communication. The arts therapies group is made of the four separate professions of Art, Dance-Movement, Drama, and Music therapies. They share a strong common feature in that  all arts therapists are dual trained in both their specified art form and in psychological therapy. [2]

Psychologists work in many different areas of society and are concerned with practical problems. Many of the challenges we face in the modern world are rooted in human behaviour, so psychological knowledge can help us find solutions. [3]
