How counselling is different at CARESPACE

Psychotherapy is a little different here. The CARESPACE therapists in Kitchener and Waterloo work collaboratively with a multidisciplinary team to create personalized plans with coordinated care.

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is also called talk therapy or counselling due to its purpose of talking to people with various mental health challenges and emotional hardships. It is also for people who have specific goals they want to achieve and want to explore the barriers that may be holding them back.

Psychotherapy can help to reduce or eliminate troubling symptoms to enable an improved sense of wellbeing and better navigate the day-to-day tasks of everyday life.

No matter who we are, we face challenges in life that can throw us off course. When you experience changes and difficult life experiences, you are not alone. Millions of people around the world are facing issues such as stress, anxiety, and depression.

By working with CARESPACE psychotherapists, you can mitigate the effects of these conditions. Imagine starting each day with a clear sense of purpose. Imagine responding with conviction when faced with difficult situations. You can use psychotherapy to help you be better.

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a type of therapy in which a you can receive help to work through life’s challenges. It provides a non-judgemental space in which individuals can gain an understanding of your inner reality, express yourself honestly and openly, explore options for making changes, increase clarity, and find relief and comfort. People often seek counselling to address anxiety, depression, stress, grief, relationships problems and other life transitions. By engaging with your counsellor – usually in weekly or bi-weekly sessions – you can develop better insight into their situation as well as learn new skills for addressing difficult emotions and resolving conflicts. Overall, counselling is about developing greater self-awareness that can help liberate us from our suffering.

There is a counsellor near you if you live in Kitchener or Waterloo. CARESPACE has locations within 10-minutes of where you are, so give us a call today.

What is the difference between psychotherapy and counselling services?

Counselling services and psychotherapy are two distinct yet related practices. Counselling is typically focused on helping a person address an immediate issue, such as preparing for a job interview or addressing family dynamics; this process involves talking about present ways of thinking, feeling and behaving, and usually occurs over the course of several sessions. A Psychotherapist tends to explore in-depth issues from a person’s past experiences, with the goal of helping individuals identify patterns of behavior that may be holding them back from reaching their potential. As this process often reaches beyond the present situation, it tends to take longer than counselling. By providing insight into the origin of problems or personal conflicts, psychotherapy is effective in resolving issues that counselling may not have the time to do.

What is the best type of therapy?

What is the best type of therapy? That depends. Just like human issues are diverse, psychotherapy has many sides. Psychotherapists may combine several approaches depending on a person’s circumstances and preferences. At CARESPACE our psychotherapy team is highly trained and work together to develop the best, most effective plan to get you the results you want.

What are the benefits of psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy has a variety of benefits that can help people make positive changes in their life. It can provide an insight into our behavior and understanding of thought processes, emotional regulation, and learning to cope with difficult situations. Psychotherapy allows you to explore topics you might not feel comfortable discussing with close friends or family. It is also beneficial because it offers a confidential, safe space, free from judgement, where you can express yourself and initiate healthy conversations towards introspective growth. Through the process, you gain a greater self-awareness and better strategies for communicating your feelings. As a result, you will learn problem-solving skills to better manage stress, develop relationships, improve moods, increase productivity and reduce unhealthy behaviors.

How does therapy work?

Psychotherapy is a powerful tool that can help many people improve their mental health, manage their emotions, and transform their lives. Through regular sessions, you can learn to identify and understand the underlying causes of any emotional distress. This knowledge can then be used to correct destructive patterns of thought and behavior as well as create new behaviors that lead to better health outcomes. In addition to providing insight through verbal communication with your counsellor, it may also explore creativity through art or music therapy and mindfulness-based activities such as yoga or meditation. Ultimately, if done correctly, psychotherapy has the potential to equip you with the skills needed for lifelong emotional wellbeing.

How do I know if psychotherapy is right for me?

Deciding to pursue psychotherapy can be a difficult decision and it’s important to note that it isn’t necessarily the right choice for everyone. However, if you’re feeling overwhelmed, unsure about how to approach certain life issues, or struggling with persistent mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, it may be worth considering. Talking with a professional counsellor or psychotherapist who is trained and experienced in understanding mental health concerns can provide invaluable insight and support. There are many forms of treatment available today and finding the best fit for you could mean the difference between feeling stuck in your mental health struggles or having renewed hope and possibility for improvement.

At CARESPACE you have the option of seeing a counsellor either in-person or online with TeleCARE. At CARESPACE your counsellor is less than 10-minutes away, and your first online appointment is FREE. So give us a call or book online and get started today!

How can I get the most out of therapy?

You will be happier with your results and get the most out of your therapy when you show up ready to work on you. Showing up with an idea of what you would like to overcome in your life or simply improve on will help your therapist better support you. While trust takes time to build, the more open and honest you can be with your therapist the better they will be able to help you. With CARESPACE locations in Kitchener and Waterloo, help is close by!

What should I expect from psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy which is a form of counselling, can be an incredibly beneficial tool to gain insight and develop new strategies to address mental health issues. The purpose of psychotherapy is to create a safe and supportive environment for individuals to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with the goal of improving quality of life. During sessions, you can expect your therapist or counsellor to offer guidance while exploring the underlying causes of problems that are causing difficulty. They will likely help identify patterns in behavior or thought processes that may be contributing to distress and provide coping strategies to better manage challenges. While the road to personal growth requires hard work, it’s important to know that you have a compassionate therapist by your side offering motivation and support along the way. The first step is easy – call CARESPACE or book your Free first appointment online today.

How long does therapy usually last?

Psychotherapy is a powerful tool used to improve mental and emotional wellbeing. Each person requires a unique kind of psychological healing, and the length of treatment can vary widely based on the severity of a person’s needs. Some people experience positive results in as little as one or two sessions while others might need years of therapy to heal deep rooted emotional issues. The process can be difficult and overwhelming but is ultimately worth the commitment required for achieving long lasting change. Research supports that psychotherapy offers strong and lasting benefits when it is tailored, individualized, and handled with care by experienced professionals.
