There are many reasons why people seek out therapy, and the initial step often feels uncertain, if not overwhelming.
I can imagine, given that you are here, there may be something in your life (or that of your child or loved one) that is causing you discomfort. Welcome, and well done for taking the first step towards getting some help.
Whether you have been in therapy before or not, whether you have been diagnosed with a psychiatric condition or are struggling with a significant change, trauma, or life event, I would like to encourage you to take a moment to consider whether therapy may be right for you.
I am a clinical psychologist based in Claremont, Cape Town.
