Starting Treatment With a Psychologist

What are psychologists?

Psychologists are mental health professionals that provide psychotherapy services and diagnoses for their clients. They have more research-focused training than most therapists, as they are more medically educated and receive a more general education about therapeutic approaches and theory.

How do psychologists work?

Thriveworks psychologists in Manchester, CT provide standard psychotherapy services, tailoring treatment to each client and their unique concerns. However, they can also provide diagnoses to clients when appropriate, something that therapists and counselors cannot do. Finally, in some states in the U.S., they are allowed to prescribe medication.

Can I see a psychologist in person or online?

How long would I see a psychologist?

Psychological treatment at Thriveworks Manchester is very individualized and specific to each client, which means that the duration of treatment is often varied depending on a client’s condition or disorder, the state of their symptoms, and their specific goals.

Psychologists in Manchester, CT—Work with a Dedicated Mental Health Professional  

When was the last time you checked in with yourself to see how you were doing mentally? You’re probably busy with work, personal responsibilities, and balancing a proper work/life balance. Chances are, there have been some things along the way that are hard to deal with. Maybe you had to cope with a breakup or are struggling to find a career that fits your personality as well as your financial needs. When we go through these challenging times, it’s important to remember to take care of our mental health. One of the best ways we can do that is by sitting down with a licensed psychologist to talk about what’s going on.

Licensed psychologists are mental health professionals who can help you through the difficulties of life. Counseling provides people with the guidance and support they might need to cope with what’s going on and overcome those challenges. Sometimes it can be hard to open up and discuss what’s holding us back from living the happy, healthy life we want. Once you do open up, you’ll realize all of the benefits that come with talking to a professional. If you feel like you could benefit from working with a trusted psychologist, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Counseling in Manchester, CT. All you have to do is give us a call.

What Is a Psychologist?  

Maybe you’ve heard of the term psychologist, but you don’t know exactly what they do. As we briefly mentioned earlier, psychologists are trained mental health professionals who have gone through extensive training to help their clients with the many different difficulties that are presented throughout life. They utilize a variety of therapeutic methods and techniques to help their clients cope with and overcome those problems. They use different methods, including cognitive behavioral therapy, traditional talk therapy, narrative therapy, and management techniques.

If a client needs medication, they will work closely with the client’s primary care doctor or psychiatrist to ensure the correct medicine is being administered for their needs and progress. Before starting any medication, be sure to discuss any questions or concerns you may be having with your psychologist.

How Does a Psychologist Help?

It doesn’t matter if you just need someone to give you advice when making difficult choices or if you need proper guidance on how to overcome a mental illness. Psychologists have a mental toolbox that they’re ready to share with you. Some of the different areas that psychologists could assist you with include:

  • Family issues
  • Relationship concerns
  • Behavioral problems in children and teens
