Individual therapy strives to improve relationships, reduce emotional distress, enhance personal well-being, improve self-esteem, increase social skills, and so on.
For example, individual therapy can help with:
• Addressing depression, anxiety, and other emotional states
• Dealing with self-criticism, judgment, and low self-esteem
• Coping with life's challenges and stressors, and handling work-related concerns and pressures
• Reducing problematic behaviors and improving interpersonal relationships
• Maximizing personal growth and potential
Therapeutic Couple Work (No Service provide at the movement)
When an intimate relationship is in conflict, it is important to seek professional support. Unfortunately, on average, couples dealing with conflict wait for four to six years once problems surface before receiving support services, such as couple therapy.
Couple work can help by using emotionally focused therapy to:
• Improve connectedness and emotional closeness by working with intimate issues
• Help each individual understand his or her partner by working through ongoing issues, thoughts, feelings, unsolved problems, and behaviors and training the couple to work through those issues independently with the use of coping skills
• Enhance family life by building effective communication
• Resolve conflicts successfully and manage relationship issues
Therapeutic Family System Work
When systemic family issues triangulate between family members, maintaining and building healthy family relationships can be challenging. Whether single parents are raising kids with an intimate partner or with extended family, parenting can be challenging at times. Family systemic conflict can be resolved by working with trauma and ongoing issues such as mental health problems through the learning of new skills or coping strategies.
Family therapy can provide support with:
• Learning effective communication techniques with your children
• Encouraging cooperation on chores and resolving conflicts with the extended family
• Ending sibling rivalry and promoting positive relationships between brothers and sisters
• Finding effective solutions to difficult or disruptive behaviour
• Resolving and negotiating family conflicts and maintaining healthy communication between the children and the spouse
• Family system or structure therapy work to support the healing process, strengthen family relationships, and reunite the family
Therapy groups can be very supportive and highly effective, but they can also be very challenging. Group participation requires a willingness to take risks and to experience uncomfortable emotions, at least long enough to think about them and try to understand where they come from. Therapy group would involve psychoeducational, therapeutic activities, or sharing.
Many people--for example, people who are nervous around others or have low self-esteem--find group therapy to be more effective than individual therapy.
We provide assessment, therapy (TF-CBT), and group support service programs for adults and adolescents who have experienced physical, sexual, psychological--including residential and school--trauma and PTSD.
