How’s Your Psychological Health?

For some, maintaining a healthy psychology is easier than it is for others.

Life has its challenges. Your ability to recover from life’s upsets depends on;

  • your cultural and religious beliefs
  • your support networks
  • your current life triggers
  • your past traumas
  • and many other factors

Why Things Can Go Wrong Suddenly

For some of us psychological distress is the result of a sudden & acute situation, such as an illness or accident, an unwanted medical diagnosis, a relationship breakup or a job loss.

It often doesn’t matter whether the situation is a result of our own mistakes, bad choices, or is caused by events outside of our control.

At the end of the day- we are suddenly left dealing with problems that we’re not prepared to cope with on our own.

Why Things Can Go Wrong Gradually

Other times, our psychological health can erode gradually…

Each of us has our own individual pains, anxieties, fears, hopes and dreams. Over time, these strong emotions all have the ability to lead us into self-defeating thought patterns, questioning ourselves and our ability to succeed.

We’ll experience this as stress that slowly increases over time, until suddenly, it’s too much and we’re left feeling unable to deal with life.

First, Take Ownership of Your Problems

It is not easy to learn to lean into your vulnerability and say “I am not okay,” but it’s essential to face your situation honestly.

We’ll help you make that brave first step to have “that conversation.” Our team provides a completely safe environment, with no judgement, that enables you to be authentic.

For many, this is the turning point to recovery.

From the first visit, we’ll help you learn the tools you need to navigate your way through your issues.

Don’t Ignore Your Problems

Many people think they can simply suffer in silence, or ignore their pain long enough that it will go away.

Unfortunately suppressed pain becomes worse, rather than better. Eventually that pain will grow until it destroys parts of your life, and creates anxiety to the point that you feel unsafe.

Don’t make that mistake, recovery is much easier before that damage is done.

What is Psychological Health Coaching?

Psychological health coaching is a way of helping you gain the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to take an active part in your own health care. It helps you reach the health goals you deserve, and together we can build a stronger health backbone.

We provide in depth individual service.

Just like athletes enlist the services of a sports coach, you too should enlist the services of a health coach, who will share knowledge with you, inspire confidence in you, and find ways to motivate you to achieve your health goals.

Medications & Psychopharmacology

Certain medications are very effective in helping you cope with the immediate pain and distress caused by certain psychological disorders.

However medicinal treatments are best done in conjunction with therapy. Without therapy, the underlying problem will never be resolved, and generally the medicinal treatment will lose effectiveness over time.

You don’t have to struggle alone. Make an appointment with us now.
