Psychotherapy Brisbane – Psychotherapy is not a one-shoe-fits-all kind of solution. There are many different possible solutions to many different problems.

Why choose psychotherapy Brisbane people?
When life throws challenges at us, which it inevitably will, we need to understand how we react mentally and physically. And we need to learn how best to cope with the circumstances of our lives. Too often, we have learnt to suppress our feelings and emotions in life, but sometimes we reach a tipping point. Sometimes we feel that life just gets on top of us. But when we most need support, there can be a bewildering range of options. Sure there are medical interventions which offer short term relief. But these options are not usually tailored to the situation. Often the medical or pharmaceutical options are not the most heathy options. Furthermore, they tend to train people into taking medication for the long term. But if long term medication is unhealthy, unnecessary, or undesirable, then psychotherapy can be a better option.
Psychotherapy is often a better option
There are various reasons that psychotherapy in Brisbane-based Taringa Health Centre is often a better option. The primary reason is that a trained psychologist like Hester Van der Elst can tailor the most appropriate solution to an individual’s needs. When we suppress our emotions for too long, eventually we find that we need to face those hidden feelings at some time. So that is why we need to develop skills to deal with the awkward situations, or difficult relationships with others. Often it is the way our subconscious mind reacts to these situations that controls our thoughts and our actions. But when our unconscious thoughts and actions are not helpful, then we need to find a better way to manage our subconscious. Medication can only further suppress these problems. Furthermore, in some cases, medication may make the problem worse.
Medication is only part of the solution
Are you already taking medication for stress or anxiety? For many people, a Doctor’s prescription for medication is only part of the solution. There is often a requirement to deal with the full range of emotions. Dealing with the full range of emotions can in most cases be provided by psychotherapy. For situations where the mental issues are serious, medication may well provide the best option. But for less extreme psychological issues, psychotherapy may provide the preferred solution. Where a patient has been prescribed a course of medication, it can often been beneficial to receive psychotherapy support as well. At the Taringa Health Centre, you will find a caring option for psychotherapy Brisbane, which is sure to provide support and assistance. Not just a pat on the back, and see you later! We believe in a truly empathetic and compassionate approach to psychotherapy in Brisbane.
