  • What is psychotherapy?
    Therapy is like having a supportive partner on life's roller coaster. It's a safe and confidential space where you can talk openly about any thoughts, emotions, or experiences without fear of judgment. Whether you're dealing with stress, anxiety, relationships, or just feeling lost, therapy can help. It's also beneficial for working towards personal goals, making decisions, and embarking on growth journeys. Your therapist is there to support you, helping you discover your inner voice, heal wounded parts, and find peace and happiness. They will guide you through self-discovery by: Helping you understand yourself better Letting go of limiting beliefs Connecting with your inner child Acknowledging and processing your emotions Recognizing and changing maladaptive behavior patterns Transforming your inner critic into an inner coach Creating new neural pathways for better decision-making Therapy empowers you to create a more peaceful and fulfilling life. It's a journey of healing, growth, and discovering the strength and resilience within you.
  • What therapy is NOT?
    The therapist will NOT make the decisions for you but will EMPOWER you to make your own decisions by providing insightful questions that can help to weigh the alternatives Therapy is NOT just a venting space. While expressing your emotions is important, therapy also uses various tools such as REBT, Art Therapy, Movement Therapy, Mindfulness, and many more to help the process of healing & self-discovery. Therapist is NOT a friend to be called upon at any time. Sessions must be scheduled beforehand. However in case of an emergency, you can reach out to your therapist.
  • Can I switch therapists if I'm not satisfied?
    Absolutely. Your comfort and progress are our top priorities. If you feel that your current therapist isn't the right fit for you, we encourage you to discuss your concerns openly.
