Psychotherapists design therapy session to help raise understanding and awareness of oneself in order to lead a happier and more fulfilled life.

Psychotherapy sessions are highly personal and can vary depending on the personality of the therapist and the client, as well as the particular issues you would like to discuss. Unlike any other medical treatments, psychotherapy requires you to take an active effort and may need to work on things discussed in therapy during sessions and at home. Every person has different needs and therefore every therapist uses different techniques that best suit their clients. The following are the various techniques used by our therapists:

  • Narrative Therapy
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Interpersonal Therapy
  • Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy
  • Solution-Focused Therapy
  • Emotionally-Focused Therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Family Systems
  • Trauma-Informed Therapy

These sessions involve a person-centered approach to tailor treatments specific to the needs, wants and future goals of the individual. Although many individuals from all walks of life find psychotherapy sessions very helpful, here are some common situations that therapy can be recommended for:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Adolescence/Youth
  • Anger Management
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Career
  • Self-Esteem
  • Life Transitions
  • Marriage and Family Issues
  • Trauma
  • Parenting

Choosing a psychotherapist whom you are comfortable with is important. At Complete Balance, you can schedule a free 15 minute consultation in-person or by phone with any of our psychotherapists (check out our team) to see if they are a good fit for your needs.

What are the benefits of Psychotherapy?

Although therapy is usually emotionally supportive and almost always helps to make you feel better, the process can be confusing. Since therapy often involves discussing unpleasant aspects of your life, you may experience uncomfortable feelings like sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness or helplessness. On the other hand, psychotherapy has been shown to provide benefits that lead to better relationships, solutions to specific problems and significant reductions in feelings of distress. Each person can have different experiences from therapy.

In the first few sessions with our psychotherapists, we will evaluate your needs. By the end of those sessions, the therapist will be able to offer you some first impressions of what our work will include and a treatment plan to follow, if you decide to continue with therapy. If psychotherapy begins, 50 minute sessions will be scheduled at a mutually agreed time which may be weekly, biweekly or as needed.
