Frequently Asked Questions
We accumulated a bunch of questions that came across to us as a general consensus. In case we missed out on a question that you may have, please feel free to reach out to us through our contact information.
How do I know when it is time to get support?The moment any issue starts to interfere with your daily life activities like sleeping, eating, social activities, basic grooming activities.
How long does a therapy session last?Usually an average session for a therapy lasts for about 30 minutes to an hour.
What is the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?A psychiatrist prescribes medication as first line of treatment while a psychologist can not prescribe medication and uses therapy as their first line of treatment.
How will I know assess my improvement?Besides feeling recovery, based on your condition, your therapist will assess you on psychological tests, which will be repeated in every 5 sessions in order to record progress.
How do I expect to feel after the session?Your therapist's job is to provide a space where you will be respected and growth will be encouraged. As part of this process of seeking to grow and change, expect to be asked to think, feel and behave differently. This can be uncomfortable being out of your comfort zone. Understand though, that this may be necessary and true growth cannot happen if you're only made to feel good in the therapy space and in your comfort zone.
How do I trust the therapist with my feelings?There is no one answer that fits all questions here. Therapists swear right from their graduation day to their client's confidentiality. This is very firmly held as priority in work ethics. We feel morally and ethically bound to never divulge anything that is revealed to us by any of our clients. All of us mental health professionals are bound by the rule - "First do no harm".
