Therapy Canberra

Unfortunately, life isn’t always plain sailing. From relationship break-ups through to unhappy childhoods, unsatisfying work, unsupportive families or just the stresses and strains which come from a 21st century lifestyle, there are all sorts of reasons why people can experience on-going emotional distress. Frequently it can be difficult to work out how best to improve mental health, particularly when the issues causing stress are matters which can’t be easily removed or resolved.

For many people, talking about the problems and issues that are affecting their lives adversely can be of real benefit. Therapy is a structured approach to talking that’s been specifically designed to enable users to resolve issues and feelings which are problematic to them. If you’re considering therapy, our Canberra therapists can offer a variety of different styles and approaches. Because everyone is slightly different, it’s often the case that what works well for one person may need to be altered slightly to work for someone else. That’s why therapy is individually tailored, at the same time as adhering to the principles necessary to achieve a positive therapeutic result. Choosing the right therapist in Canberra residents can use to achieve the results they want can be a challenge – at DIPAC Counselling, we can help.

In many cases, a Counselling therapist Canberra people can talk to about the problems they’re experiencing can make a positive difference. Therapy offers a safe space in which individuals can talk through their thoughts and feelings with an empathetic, non-judgemental professional. When utilising the skills of a therapist, Canberra clients can expect to gain insight into their current situation, as well as learn the skills needed to potentially feel more positive.

A therapist can explore a wide range of issues, empowering individuals to find solutions and ways of thinking and acting which work for them. Often used alongside medication and lifestyle changes, therapy can be a powerful way of improving mental well-being.

DIPAC offers therapy services for the Canberra, Queanbeyan and ACT region from our offices at Level 1-18 The Realm, National Circuit, Barton, ACT, 2600. We also offer online appointments. If you want to find out more about the benefits that therapy can offer, or would like to speak to someone, we can help. Call today on: 02 6198 3423 or use our contact form.

Does therapy actually help?

Although some people are initially skeptical of the benefits which therapy can bring, the reality is that, if used correctly, the results can be nothing short of life-changing! Many of our clients not only report an improvement in their own mental well-being, but they also feel that their relationships, lifestyle, physical health and even economic well-being have been positively influenced through therapeutic input.

When you turn to us for therapy, you can expect a professional, supportive service that’s patient-centred and tailored to meet your specific needs. DIPAC therapists are all qualified in their field, as well as experienced in using a range of therapeutic approaches. In addition to generic therapy, at DIPAC Counselling you can also access therapy that’s targeted at a particular problematic area. Examples include: anxiety counselling Canberra clients find of significant value, as well as marriage, relationship and bereavement counselling. Elements of these counselling specialisms can be built into the therapy you receive if required.

The goal at DIPAC is to provide long-term benefits as well as short-term improvements in your situation. By teaching clients how to think differently about what’s happening to them, it’s often possible to minimise the risk of unhelpful thought patterns reoccurring in the future.
