Discover Solutions to Psychological, Emotional, and Mental Problems

 

Mental health is one of the most important yet least talked about topics in our society. Mental health issues are complicated and are unique to every individual but can be treated with the right guidance, support, care and compassion. Psychological counselling can assist in managing and healing your problems. It provides therapy that uses scientific evidence to fully study your personal struggles.

 

In the process of guiding you through the right path, our staff will help you discover the source of your challenges, which at times may even involve psychological, emotional, or mental conditions. Find the resources and actions you need to confront your struggles at Thunder Bay Psychology. What are you struggling with? We can help you address any of the following with our friendly counselling services:

 

Anxiety

Here at Thunder Bay Psychology, we understand that anxiety can, at times, be crippling. We are equipped to handle your anxiety and provide you with the proper resources to manage it.

 

Depression

Although you might feel despite the fact that it may feel as though there is no rising up from depression, we can help you find a light at the end of the tunnel. We practice a wide range of therapies to help you cope with your feelings.

Along with its physical effects, chronic pain can take a huge toll on your mental health. Our team can assist with the negative feelings that go hand in hand with chronic pain issues.

Potential Benefits of Counselling

At the beginning of your session, you will be engaged in a supportive and collaborative professional relationship with one of our trusted clinicians. They will help you walk through difficult events of your lives and help you to work on yourself while learning more about yourself and how you interact with others.

  • Increased self-compassion and self-esteem
  • Comfort in expressing and managing emotions
  • Reduction in psychological distress/symptoms
  • Improved functioning and relationships
  • Improved problem-solving and conflict resolution
  • Ability to effectively manage stress
  • Ability to change self-defeating behaviours and habits

  • Increased confidence and decision-making skills

  • Greater sense of self and purpose

  • Recognition of distorted thinking

  • Provides a safe outlet to vent about issues

  • Learning effective skills for life

 

Common Misconceptions About Counselling

Psychological counselling, in many ways, is just like an educational experience. Just like you visit a physician if you have any ailment, similarly, you visit a counsellor if you want to discuss and examine something that is bothering you and restricting you from leading a full and happy life. Since you may not know someone who has received psychological or personal counselling, you may have some questions about what it is like. Some of the common misconceptions lingering around counselling are:

  • If I need help, something must be wrong with me. I must be damaged or abnormal.
  • No one can understand my problem. I don’t deserve help.
  • A counsellor will send me to a hospital.
  • I will be put on medication and will be addicted to them for a lifetime.
  • If I try harder, I won’t need treatment.
  • People will mock me if I seek help.
  • Therapy is just a lot of talking and listening; I can get the help I need from my friends.
  • If I get treatment, I’ll have to keep going forever.
  • It is an expensive affair. I won’t be able to bear the costs.
