Therapy Q&A

Why might I need therapy?

You might benefit from therapy (also known as psychotherapy, talk therapy, or counseling) if you have a mental health problem. Some of the most common disorders that therapy can treat include:

  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
  • Phobias
  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Depression and other mood disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Eating disorders

Therapy can also help you regain brain function after an injury or stroke, delay dementia progression, and help you get through difficult life transitions like a relationship breakdown or someone you love dying.

What does having therapy involve?

Therapy involves talking to a trained counselor in confidence about your feelings and behaviors. The conversation might cover past or current experiences and problems, distressing thoughts and emotions, and relationship issues. Dr. Maxwell makes connections and provides insight to help you work through these challenges.

Studies show that therapy is an effective option for most patients. You can attend couples and group therapy sessions in addition to individual therapy sessions.

How does therapy help me?

Numerous therapy techniques are available to suit every patient’s unique needs. Some that Dr. Maxwell specializes in at Bridging the Gap Psychological Services include:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

CBT is a widely-used therapy where Dr. Maxwell helps you identify and test harmful or incorrect beliefs. She flags unhealthy thought patterns during therapy and shows you how they lead to self-destructive beliefs and behaviors. Challenging these negative thoughts enables you to restructure them into more positive ones.

For example, you might continually think you’re useless or worthless. Having identified how these negative beliefs lower your self-esteem, you look for evidence to dispute them. Looking back on previous experiences under Dr. Maxwell’s guidance, you recall times when you achieved your goals or accomplished something significant.

You can then change the harmful thoughts to more realistic ones, reminding yourself that, more often than not, you’re competent rather than considering yourself a failure.
