Mental Health Therapy in Burlington
Mental Health Therapy can help you manage strong feelings and emotions that are making you feel overwhelmed. Individual therapy can be a positive support in addressing mental health issues and designing a more balanced life. Working with a therapist that supports your mental health is an important part of your general health and well-being.
When is the best time to start therapy?
One of the biggest misconceptions about therapy services is that people should look for therapy support when in distress. This means when they are feeling overwhelmed, suffering from anger issues, mental abuse and other mental health issues. But contrary to popular belief, the best time to attend therapy is when everything is going well.
Individual Therapy is an excellent opportunity to address underlying mental health issues. While not severely impacting your mood and day-to-day life these are still triggers of anxiety, trauma and depression that can lead to feeling overwhelmed. Approaching these triggers when everything is going well, helps build resilience and coping mechanisms. It also gives you the space to work through them when you have the tolerance to do so.
When things are not going well and you need immediate mental health first aid, individual therapy can work with you to develop coping mechanisms, identify your triggers, sources of stress, traumas and design a treatment plan that works best for your style and personality. Starting therapy at this stage means first strengthening your coping and tolerance skills and then addressing the underlying triggers.
Should I continue therapy when things calm down?
Whether you start therapy when everything is going well, or when you are in distress, a lot of important therapy work is done when you are not feeling as overwhelmed, and have the ability to have open conversations about your triggers and traumas. So even when things get better, and you stop feeling overwhelmed by your emotions, continuing therapy is an important part of mental health maintenance and well-being.
At Evölve we believe in the importance of promoting mental health and well-being. This means reducing the impact that mental health distress can cause on the individual by preventively addressing mental health issues. Working with our therapists can provide the tools you need to work through day-to-day challenges without feeling overwhelmed. Therapy will also help you build confidence and resilience to move forward and think about your goals and your future.
How will working with a therapist help you?
Your therapist and mental health counsellor is an ongoing member of your healthcare team and will be able to guide you through life challenges, changes, as well as underlying traumas, and mental health issues that have been repressed or were left unaddressed. Working with your therapist in individual therapy will help you become a stronger and more resilient individual.
At Evölve we also understand that life issues such as anxiety, depression, women’s or men’s issues, eating disorders, trauma, PTSD, eating disorders, abuse, addictions, anger, relationship challenges and other forms of mental health disturbances can quickly escalate into intense feelings and make you feel overwhelmed. Working with a mental health therapist at Evölve can reduce the impact of those emotions and stop you from feeling overwhelmed.
