Everyone is Unique

There are no two people or situations alike, everyone is unique. This is the way the mental health therapy professionals deal with patients who come to them through virtual counselling on in-person counselling sessions in Nova Scotia.

We as humans are social creatures, so talking with a friend or family member would be a first course of action in dealing with issues that may be affecting us. This would be a good method for dealing with some minor issues by not all issues. This is where we need to reach out for professional mental health assistance.

Processing our thoughts with a trained therapist may prove a more productive method when the need arises to overcome many deeper issues we may be facing. Also, we may not feel comfortable talking with a friend, a brother or sister for all issues that may be worrying us.

Some stresses are too much to handle on our own or by discussing it with a family member. This is where we need one-on-one therapy, someone we can trust in the confidence of a licensed therapist in Bedford, one who can respond to your concerns objectively, privately, and securely.

Individual Therapy Sessions

Meeting with a trained counsellor in an individual therapy session may allow the therapist to give you the undivided attention needed to overcome your issue, whether you are a teen, an adult or senior.

Some therapy sessions include those that come from some form of trauma or addiction where the therapy can be customized for that individual person only, and no one else. The first individual therapy session is more of a fact finding mission where the therapist gets to know you and your issue(s). It is from that point on that followup sessions are determined.

How many sessions is up to the individual. You might have one session a week that would best suit your situation, or you might want to attend weekly sessions for a few weeks, and then reach out for more sessions as the need arises. Group counselling sessions may be beneficial as well where required, as you then realize other people are suffering from similar situations, and you are no alone.

It always comes down to your personal needs, your individual situation, and how to overcome the triggers that set you down the wrong path.
