Psychology is the study of the mind and behavior. Psychologists assess thoughts, brain functions, personalities, and emotions and how they relate to a person’s physical, mental, and social state, and overall well-being.
Our psychologist at 121 Wellness is trained and experienced in working with people from various backgrounds. We’re pleased to provide psychological services to help you cope with your situation, reduce symptoms, improve relationships, boost performance, and enhance your general health.
Psychology is applicable in all life areas. It protects people from harm, physical or emotional, by equipping them with the mental capacity to handle triggers they can encounter at any time.
Difficulties, anxieties, and traumas can cause an individual to develop psychological symptoms. These symptoms need to be identified, diagnosed and managed as soon as possible, and this is where psychology plays a vital role.
Here are ways in which psychology can be beneficial for individuals or groups:
A psychology treatment is also called psychotherapy, counseling, or talk therapy. Anyone can benefit from it, including children. During sessions, you talk to a psychologist or a mental health provider and learn more about your emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and feelings.
Psychological treatments have different types. The right one will depend on your unique situation. Here’s a quick overview of how they work:
Initial visit and assessment
During your initial consultation with your psychologist or treatment provider, they gather information about you.
You fill out forms and share details about your emotional, mental, and physical health. This is also an opportunity for you to learn about the treatment approach that will be used, along with the goals for your treatment and the duration or frequency of required sessions.
It can take a few visits for your therapist to fully understand the problem, its effects and causes, and the treatment options they see fit.
Psychologists maintain a non-judgmental environment to make clients feel at ease and open up without worries. They also adopt different approaches depending on the client’s needs.
Is psychotherapy effective?
Individual experiences vary. This includes the time it takes to see improvements after starting treatments. Some may see changes after a few sessions, while others may notice differences after several sessions.
It’s important to participate and actively engage during therapies. Honesty is also necessary when sharing information about your symptoms. Your relationship with your psychologist can also affect the results of the treatment. Working with your therapist and establishing trust and rapport is essential to the success of the procedure.
At 121 Wellness, we have a passionate and committed psychology practitioner on board.
If you need help with what you're going through now, whether it's built-up events, emotions, or unspoken words, seeing a mental health professional can clear your mind and lighten your load.
