Fairfield Counseling and Mental Health Services, Psychiatry

Therapy, or counseling, helps people to address the problem areas in their life and ultimately live better. That sounds a lot like our mission at Thriveworks: We’re determined to help our clients live happy, successful lives.

And we tackle this mission by setting our clients up with skilled, caring therapists, counselors, psychiatrists, and life coaches who impress us with their knowledge, skills, and experience. These mental health professionals succeed in helping people understand, address, and manage the challenges in front of them.

“The only way out is through.” –Robert Frost

Working with a therapist, counselor, or coach can benefit you in many different ways. A therapist or counselor can help you process difficult emotions, manage symptoms of a mental illness, and build better relationships with your loved ones. A life coach, on the other hand, can help you set, work toward, and accomplish life-changing goals. Whatever it is you’d like help with, working with a mental health professional can prove valuable.

Here at Thriveworks Counseling in Fairfield, CT, our providers want to provide you with the mental health services that could change your life. If you think you could benefit from receiving mental health services or you’re interested in how it could prove to help you, reach out to us. Give us a call to schedule your appointment or to hear more about the services we offer, which include online counseling.

How Can Therapy or Counseling Benefit Me?

In our humble opinion, everyone can benefit from therapy, counseling, or life coaching, and in different ways depending on their specific needs. For example, someone who has just recently lost a loved one could benefit from grief counseling, while someone who is experiencing symptoms of depression could benefit from depression therapy. Let’s dive deeper. Here is a list of reasons people seek counseling:

  • They are experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, or another mental illness
  • They are grieving the death of a loved one, a relationship, or a job
  • They’re struggling to connect or communicate with their significant other
  • They are suffering from feelings of loneliness and isolation
  • They have low self-esteem and feel uncomfortable in social situations
  • They are experiencing suicidal thoughts

These are common reasons people choose to begin therapy or counseling, but there are plenty of other reasons to work with a therapist. In fact, even happy people decide to start therapy and find benefit in doing so.

What Is Life Coaching? How Does It Work?

Life coaches are different from counselors, psychiatrists, and therapists, in that they focus on helping people find greater success. Additionally, technically anyone can call themselves a life coach, as they don’t have to possess a licensure to lead life coaching.

However, the life coaches at Thriveworks Counseling in Fairfield, CT are licensed, qualified mental health professionals. They can help you achieve new goals and find greater fulfillment in life. Here are common reasons people seek life coaching:

  • They’re struggling to achieve their goals
  • They don’t have any goals and need direction
  • They aren’t sure what career path they want to pursue
  • They are looking to find new meaning in life
  • They need someone to keep them accountable

Do you have a better idea of how you might benefit from life coaching? If you’ve decided that you’re interested in working with a life coach, give Thriveworks Counseling in Fairfield a call.

Consider Virtual Psychiatry Services at Thriveworks

Psychiatrists can treat a wide variety of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. As a result of their training and medical degree, psychiatrists have a unique perspective on mental health issues. Many mental and emotional challenges can impact a client’s mental and physical health, which is why a psychiatrist’s medical background can be invaluable.

Psychiatrists are also able to prescribe medication for clients whose treatment requires it. Some clients need talk therapy, some need medication, and some need a combination of both. Whatever your situation may be, our virtual psychiatrists can customize a treatment plan that is right for you.

If you’re dealing with a mental or emotional disorder, licensed psychiatrists are standing by at Thriveworks Counseling.

Amazing therapist!!

Susan Murray has been a colleague of mine for about 15 years, and I am happy to highly recommend her as a psychotherapist. She is great at connecting with her clients. They enjoy working with her and regularly make therapeutic progress. Susan is a grounded, very experienced therapist, with a delightful sense of humor and spontaneity. I never hesitate to refer clients to her.
