Importance of Mental Health
Mental health is a state of mind. It is not about being “mad” or “insane” – it is about being healthy and well.
People with mental health problems are likely to experience a range of difficulties, many of which fall under the umbrella term “emotional distress”. Emotional distress includes feeling anxious and depressed, having low self-esteem, feeling isolated from others and withdrawing from life, or experiencing physical symptoms such as headaches, stomach aches and sleeplessness.
Mental health problems can affect anyone at any time, regardless of age, gender or background. However they do tend to affect people more at certain stages in life such as adolescence (especially for young men), mid-life (particularly for women) and old age (particularly for older men).
Who is a clinical psychologist?
A clinical psychologist is a licensed mental health professional who works with individuals, families and groups to help them overcome issues and get back to their normal lives. A clinical psychologist uses psychotherapy and other techniques to treat mental and behavioral problems.
The term “clinical psychology” refers to the application of psychological principles in a professional setting, such as therapy or research. Clinical psychologists may also provide consultation and evaluation services for individuals with physical disabilities or for those who are struggling with substance abuse and addiction issues.
A clinical psychologist is trained in psychology, counseling and therapy, but they are not the same as psychiatrists, who are medical doctors who can prescribe medication to patients with mental health disorders.
Services provided by our clinical psychologists:
Recovery from workplace bullying
Workplace bullying is a form of harassment that occurs when an individual is subjected to negative actions at work, such as verbal abuse, humiliation or intimidation. Workplace bullying can happen to anyone and it can be extremely damaging to your health and wellbeing.
Workplace bullying isn’t always easy to spot and even if you do recognize it, it may be hard to know what to do about it. If you’re experiencing bullying in the workplace then there are steps you can take to stop it happening and get back on track at work.
If you’ve been bullied at work, then seeking therapy is a good way of dealing with the situation. It’s not easy to cope with being bullied at work, but therapy can help you find ways of managing your emotions so that they don’t affect your working life. Recovery from workplace bullying is vital.
Therapy helps people develop better coping strategies so that they don’t have as much emotional baggage from their past experiences affecting them in the present. A therapist will also help you understand why certain things happened in your past which may not have been fair or reasonable as well as looking at how your current environment can affect your emotional state.
Coping strategies with stressful situations
Coping strategies are the ways you deal with stressful situations. Clinical psychologists help you find healthy coping mechanisms.
People’s coping strategies vary, depending on their personality and life experiences. Some people find it easy to cope with stress, while others find it difficult to manage their feelings and emotions. Coping strategies can be learned and changed, but this takes time and practice.
Overcoming addiction is a serious issue, and it can be difficult to find the right treatment. But there are many types of help available to you.
Treatment for addiction often includes counseling, support groups and other services. Most people with a drug or alcohol problem need professional help to quit. Counseling can help you understand your addiction and how to deal with it. Support groups can help you connect with other people who have gone through similar experiences.
There are many different types of treatment programs for different types of addictions. For example, if you have an alcohol problem, you might go to an outpatient program to receive counseling and group therapy sessions over several weeks or months. You may also attend individual counseling sessions on an ongoing basis after the program ends. If your drug of choice is heroin or prescription painkillers, your doctor may prescribe medications that act as substitutes for these drugs in order to wean you off them safely.
If you have a more severe addiction, such as heroin use disorder or cocaine dependence, you may need more intensive treatment at an inpatient facility where doctors can monitor your progress closely and provide medications if necessary.
Managing chronic illnesses
Many people with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer, need counseling to help them manage their condition.
There’s also a growing body of research that shows that mental health counseling can be helpful for people with chronic illnesses. But research on the topic is limited, and it’s not clear how effective this type of counseling is.
“In general, we don’t know what works best,” said Dr. Brian Berman, director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore.
But he said there are some things we do know: “It’s important to match the treatment with the patient,” he said. “You have to find out what works for each person.”
Berman said that if you think you might benefit from seeing a mental health professional, don’t hesitate to make an appointment.
Stress Management Counselling and Therapy
Stress is a normal part of life. But when it becomes too great and continues over a long period of time, it can be harmful to your health and well-being. Stress can affect every part of your life and may lead to sleeping problems, headaches, irritability and more serious health conditions such as heart attack or stroke.
You don’t have to deal with stress alone. A caring therapist can provide support, guidance and strategies for dealing with the stressful situations you face every day through stress management counselling and therapy.
