Although the conversation around mental health and its importance has increased in recent years, there are still a number of myths about therapy for mental health issues.
As well as providing expert help and support in times of need, therapy is a proven way to increase self-awareness, manage unhealthy symptoms, and learn useful skills to deal with difficult emotions.
With our psychologists in Newcastle providing a number of therapy approaches, we help individuals, couples and families to overcome whatever issues they may have.
In this blog, we’ve debunked some common myths about therapy and counselling, which may be preventing people from seeking the help they need.
Myth: Therapy is Only for Those with a Diagnosed Mental Health Condition.
Fact: Mental well-being is important for every human being. Taking the right steps towards improve mental health is essential for everyone, not just those with diagnosed issues.
Whether you wish to learn how to manage your emotions, or improve your relationships with others, therapy can be highly beneficial to your life.
Myth: Therapists and Counsellors Are Unqualified.
Fact: Our therapists, counsellors, and psychologists at Newcastle Psychologist have each undertaken extensive training within their respective fields. Each therapist is highly experienced and can help you identify the most suitable therapy and approach for your needs.
Myth: Therapy Is Intense.
Fact: Each of our counselling and therapy approaches is tailored to fit your individual needs, without being overwhelming.
Our psychologists in Newcastle create a safe and comfortable environment either in-person or online, where you can explore your thoughts and behaviours at your own pace.
Myth: Therapy Takes Too Long.
Fact: The length of time you spend in therapy is wholly dependent on your therapy goals, and the type of therapy you require.
While some people may only require a few sessions, others may have therapy for a prolonged period of time that suits them – our therapists will help you to determine a timeline that works for you.
