Everyone experiences difficulties at some point in their lives, and with today’s stressful lifestyle and challenges, it is not surprising that we can sometimes feel overwhelmed.

When avoided or ignored, difficulties in our lives (internal and external) can grow and lead to problems such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, chronic worry or feelings about being unable to manage.

Your psychological wellbeing is just as important as your physical health, so it’s important that you give both the attention and treatment that they need.

Help is at hand...

If you are experiencing any form of psychological difficulty, help is at hand.

Today’s modern psychological therapies have been proven to be effective in relieving emotional distress, giving a greater sense of control over your own life, improving positive coping, and preventing relapse following recovery.

While there are a number of therapies available, it is important that you are heard, listened to and treated with respect during this difficult time. Trying to figure out for ourselves what is best for us whilst in the middle of our problem can often be like trying to find the way out of the fog whilst wearing dark glasses… it can sometimes take someone on the outside to help guide us along the path.

A typical treatment path

A typical treatment path involves meeting your psychologist for an initial session to help formulate your situation.

Then, if both you and your psychologist feel that a psychological approach would be helpful, it might be agreed to meet on a regular basis to help explore the cause and maintenance factors for your difficulties, as well as working on strategies to help you overcome your problems or help you deal with them more effectively.

Choosing a psychologist/counsellor who is right for you

It is important that you choose a psychologist who you feel comfortable talking to – and an important part of the psychologist’s role is to establish a non-judgemental and confidential space in which you feel able to talk about your situation without negative consequence.

You should never feel pressured or bullied during sessions, though some feelings of discomfort may sometimes happen, simply because you are talking about things that are important to you.

At Gosforth Physiotherapy and Wellness, we are fortunate to have the services of some outstanding clinical psychologists and  highly experienced counsellors.

Our therapists are regulated by their relevant governing bodies and adhere to a strict code of conduct maintained by the British Psychological Society.
