Through psychotherapy, you will learn to detect critical interactions between thoughts and feelings which explain both distress and well-being in different states of mind (mild distress, depression, anxiety, eating disorders or schizophrenia).
The mindful way of living requires mastering life’s challenges and opportunities at the right threshold for your development. Understanding the fine line between mental reactions and clinically relevant symptoms is the key to preventing mental distress.
When symptoms meet the diagnostic criteria for a mental illness, psychotherapy is recommended to help decrease psychological distress, and improve your ability to adapt.
When relevant symptoms are present, but are not sufficiently severe to meet the diagnostic criteria, psychotherapy will instead be focused on rehabilitation and risk-prevention.
If you are dealing with mild distress and your mental health is not significantly affected, psychotherapy will help you develop better coping strategies and new skills. This will minimise the level of discomfort and will also increase your level of general performance.
There is no need for you to suffer in order to benefit of a psychotherapeutic intervention. The earliest signs of distress, conflictual relationships or repeated life failures are some of the clues worth considering when deciding to seek help from a mental practitioner.Apply for a psychotherapy appointment
