For those who are unfamiliar with therapy, psychologists might seem like a bit of mystery. If you try to picture what they do, maybe you think of a stuffy office, where people lie down on a sofa and recount their childhood. We’re kidding—but you get the point.
Psychologists at Thriveworks are industry leaders, innovators who are passionate about helping people. They don’t just tell people what’s wrong—in fact, they do quite the opposite. They’re trained to engage with their clients actively, and they use the feedback they get to create a customized treatment plan. Without the partnership between a client and their provider, positive change isn’t possible. Psychologists at Thriveworks are:
- Trained to help clients implement coping mechanisms and ways to process difficult concepts or emotions
- Licensed professionals who have experience treating multiple mental health issues
- Able to conduct individual or group therapy sessions (like relationship therapy or marriage counseling)
The psychologists at Thriveworks in Gulfport, MS are here to help you get a hold on your mental health. To schedule an appointment and get started, just give our office a call and we will be happy to set you up.
How Psychologists Can Help You
Mental health professionals use different techniques to help their clients, based on each individual’s needs and goals. Therefore, it’s important for psychologists to establish a rapport with you. Most clients at Thriveworks attend online sessions or in person, where they engage in talk therapy or behavioral therapy with their provider. While psychologists see clients of all ages and backgrounds, some of the common issues or areas of concern that they deal with are:
- Relationship problems
- Child or teen behavioral issues
- Financial or work-related stress
- Difficulty processing a divorce or breakup
- The loss of a friend or family member
- Self-esteem issues
Mental health conditions and disorders affect everyone differently, so you should never try to self-diagnose yourself or anyone else with a condition or disorder. While ignoring mental health issues might allow you to avoid them for the time being, addressing them with the help and guidance of a psychologist could provide you with real relief—not a temporary escape.
The Benefits of Seeing a Psychologist
Psychologists are experts at seeing situations and the emotions they stir up from multiple angles. And as someone whose sole job is to listen and help you brainstorm solutions to what’s troubling you, there’s a lot to be gained from attending therapy sessions.
Therapy sessions with a psychologist could benefit those who want to improve their self-esteem, communication skills in their romantic lives, family dynamics, or work environments. Psychologists are great at helping folks with many different areas of their lives, but psychological help isn’t always enough for every condition. Some of our clients benefit more from mental health care via our psychiatric option.
Our psychiatrists are medical doctors who also have a therapeutic background. Using both of their skill sets, psychiatrists can prescribe medication to help treat emotional and behavioral disorders like ADHD or PTSD that might not always be treatable with therapy alone.
