  • The Right Time to Book a Counselling Therapy Appointment in Winnipeg

    Have you been wondering whether you should seek professional help with a specific struggle, but you’re not sure how and where to get started? Are you feeling unsure of when may be the right time to book your first counselling therapy appointment in Winnipeg? If so, we are so glad you are here. Ok let’s explore.

    When to Book a Counselling Appointment in Winnipeg

    When it comes to physical health, it’s often fairly easy to know whether or not you need to see a doctor. For example: If you catch a light cold, there’s really no need to make an appointment with your doctor. However, if you break your ankle, you need to immediately get to an emergency room. But when it comes to mental and emotional health, things are often not as black and white.

    Truth is, seeking help before problems get too big and complex, regardless of the issue at hand, often leads to quicker and more successful therapeutic results. For example: Relationships that are generally strong and healthy can weather a single conflict quite successfully. However, when conflict gets stacked on with layer upon layer of long-term discord, healing will take much more work and time; i.e. the longer and more complex the conflict, the longer and more complex the healing journey. The same is true for any other life-struggles.

    The following are just a few examples of when to book a counselling appointment in Winnipeg:

    Book Your First Counselling Therapy Appointment in Winnipeg To Heal From Trauma or Abuse

    Trauma and abuse can leave lasting scars that, if left untreated, can negatively impact every aspect of your life, from relationships to your ability to experience joy and happiness. Coming to terms with your experience by speaking with a warm, empathic, and specially-trained trauma therapist can help you to heal.

    Book Your First EMDR Appointment

    If you have experienced events that cause you to experience distressing emotions that appear to you, and perhaps to loved-ones, to be stronger than the current situation may realistically call for, then EMDR therapy may be a good fit for you.

    Examples of when to consider booking your first EMDR therapy session may include:

    • Being highly reactive to certain triggers
    • One or more dysfunctional belief(s) about yourself that on an intellectual level you know is not true
    • You experience nightmares, flashbacks, low self-esteem…

    If any of the above resonates with you then you may be a good candidate for nearby EMDR therapy.

    Book Your First Winnipeg Counselling Therapy Session for Help With Anxiety

    It’s common to feel anxious from time to time, but if you’ve noticed your anxiety levels increasing and interfering with your ability to do normal activities like work, household chores, and sleep, you may benefit from talking to a mental health professional.

    Book Your First Winnipeg Counselling Therapy Session for Help With Depression

    Whether your depression comes in waives of intense bursts or whether you have low-grade and persistent depression, this may be the right time to book your first therapy appointment in Winnipeg for depression. Given the current political (and other) concerns we all face in one way or another, this is a difficult time, and getting some professional support may just be what gets you back to being your genuine, healthy, and empowered YOU.

    Book Your First Session for Tailored Therapy for Adult Individuals

    Whether you are looking for help with self-esteem, trauma healing, relationships, behavioural patterns and habits you haven’t been able to break…., therapy for adult individuals is so effective because it allows you and your therapist to tailor your therapy sessions to your unique needs.

    Book a Counselling Therapy Session For Help With Difficult Life Transitions

    Difficulties such as the loss of a job, divorce, or loss of a loved one can make a once-peaceful life seem chaotic and unbearable. The emotions that go along with these challenging life transitions can be too much for many people to handle alone. Speaking with a therapist can be an effective way to work through your emotions and grief.

    Anxiety About Therapy

    Yup, that’s totally a thing. Although it can feel frightening and overwhelming to take that first step and book your first therapy appointment, learning to manage your emotions and behaviour is an investment in yourself that can improve your quality of life in dramatic ways.
