What To Expect At Your Visit
The Mental Health Centre
We will provide you the "happiness pill."
Just kidding, but if there was one we would.
Until that magic pill gets invented, we will work with you to address everything that makes you perceive your life as hard, makes you worry, or makes you sad. Our mindset is based on the fact that everything is a matter of perspective, and together we will optimize YOUR perspective.
On the first session…On our first session we strive to understand you better in order to better meet your expectations and provide you with a fully tailored therapy based on your needs. You will be asked questions like what brings you to therapy, what are your hopes, what you would like to improve in your life, what are your short-term, and long-term goals. The answers to these questions are meant to be flexible and it is okay to change as we progress on subsequent sessions. You should always feel free to ask questions and please DO INTERUPT!
On subsequent sessions…We will work on learning and unlearning patterns, persistent ideas, and perceived ideals. Together, we will hack your brain and make it work for your own benefit. We will provide you effective tools to assess past situations. As a result, you will not only shift your perspective to a more positive one, but you will also be better equipped to adapt to future events and situations.
At The Mental Health Centre, we evaluate your needs, we assess your goals, and most importantly we listen to you in order to create and administer effective therapy sessions that will change your life for the better. We will help you develop and maintain the relationship not only with yourself, but also with your family, and/or with your partner.
So, put these positivity-tinted glasses on and whenever you are ready buckle up and we begin!

Contempt life is not a luxury, it's a necessity.
Stop and smell those flowers, darling.
What keeps you from reaching your full potential? What is in your mind that causes you to worry? How can you achieve the best version of yourself? How can you be contempt with yourself and your surroundings?
These are some of the most important questions that our individual therapy attempts to untangle. We will use your unique self as the axis of a fully customised therapy tailored to address your own needs. Together, we set both short-term and long-term goals that would allow you to reach your best self.
We will work together on identifying, targeting, and changing unhealthy mindsets and behaviours. We will dive into your soul in order to discover what keeps you from achieving your full potential. Depending on your needs, we would likely address among other, the following topics; childhood experiences, attachment schemas, events causing trauma, and learned patterns. We will introduce you to healthier cognitive and behavioural habits, while making sure your emotional world is also onboard for this journey.
While we address your needs and work on your goals together, we will rely on 2 pillars: self-confidence and motivation to change for the better. Self-confidence (within healthy levels) is an effective tool to use in every arena of a person’s life. It allows us to believe in our abilities and take healthy risks. Self-confidence is the ingredient that can elevate our entire emotional world leaving us with tangible improvements in our social and personal circles. That takes us to the second pillar, which is the motivation to change for the better. No important change can ever occur without one wanting and welcoming the change. We are the authors of our lives and subsequently we get to choose what to change and what to keep the same.
It is important to reach a balance between being satisfied with our lives and wanting to improve. Room for improvement is always available and ready to rent. With your permission, we will shift your perspective to a significantly more positive one, which will lead to meaningful improvements in your life. At The Centre for Mental Health we will help you discover and hold the key to the most important door, the one of a contempt life.
Topics of individual counselling can include, but are not limited to:
Self-destructing behaviour and/or thinking
Distorted eating patterns

Let the love grow fonder and the bond will get stronger.
Relationships are and shall be treated as living organisms. Organisms evolve, change, and grow. Even when there are moments when you and/or your partner feel trapped in your relationship, you need to remind yourselves of the factor of change. The factor of change is probably the most important one, because if used correctly, it is the one that allows growth and happiness to take place. Growth is the most precious type of wisdom, giving us objective perception of the past and helping us form and design the future. Here, at The Mental Health Centre, we aim to work with you in both developing and maintaining your relationship in your own terms, using as an axis your own needs and wants.
Together we will thoroughly examine your relationship with the purpose of developing customised tools for you and your partner to ease, develop, and maintain your communication and understanding. We believe that communication and understanding are the two fundamental ingredients for a tasty relationship. But first, we need to upgrade the recipe book, scratching any marked ideals and allowing space for some imperfection to occur.
While you and your partner may be perfect for each other, (as humans) it is normal that there might times when only limited amount perfection can be experienced. This perfection or imperfection is in the eye of the beholder and it can drastically change for the better at any time with the help of The Mental Health Centre. Embrace the opportunity to learn more about your partner and gain tools that would forever change the way you interact with your partner and possibly with the world as a whole. Together we will identify and address your problems. We will shift perspective and we will work on developing and maintaining the relationship with your partner. As a result, you will see an improvement to your communications that will lead you to long-term happiness. Are you ready to strengthen your bond?
Topics of couples counselling can include, but are not limited to:
Difficulties demonstrating intimacy/emotion
Difficulties with communication
Difficulties with understanding

No higher value than nourishing our families both individually and holistically.
Oh, we all love to bicker about our families from time to time. Some do so to a smaller and some to a larger extent. But, next time you bicker, ask yourself if you would be the same person if you had a different family, even if everything else remained the same. Try to discover some positive qualities of your family and/or some positive traits your family has given you (intentionally or unintentionally). Even at times when there is the feeling that the family is a source of negative experiences, there is always something positive about it or about how it contributed into making you YOU today. That being said, our relationship with our family is a continuous work-in-progress and we should always strive to improve it. At The Mental Health Centre, we work both with the individual members of the family as well as the family as a whole.
As humans, we learn, adopt, and reproduce our family’s healthy and unhealthy responses to certain situations, known as patterns. Thus, our responses to stress, depression, addiction etc., are dependent on our family’s responses to similar circumstances. One of our fundamental goals for family therapy at The Mental Health Centre is to identify and unlearn the unhealthy family habits and replace them with healthy ones. Together, we make sure your family is promoting and establishing a healthy mindset for its members.
We will also work on strengthening the adhesiveness of the family dynamics, which is the glue to the family’s interactions. We will teach you how to compliment each family member’s needs having as an axis their unique character. This will eventually lead to fruitful communication ground, allowing the individual growth of the family’s members as well as the growth of the family as a whole. Here, at The Mental Health Centre, we will treat your family as our family, giving you effective tools to unlock your family’s full potential. Our door is always open, whenever you are ready, knock!
Topics of family counselling can include, but are not limited to:
Family therapy for myself (in relation to my family)
Family therapy for my family
Parenting and attachment counselling

Is psychotherapy right for me?
Psychotherapy is for everyone. Whether you are struggling with your mental health or you want to gain and/or maintain a positive attitude towards life, psychotherapy will assist you. At The Mental Health Centre, we want to make sure that you get what you need from psychotherapy, so we tailor our therapy to meet your unique individual needs.
When should I start therapy?
When to start psychotherapy should be a personal choice. A person needs to be ready to embrace the personal development that comes with psychotherapy.
Even though there is not one particular time point that a person should start a psychotherapy, often some clients choose to start therapy when they face some struggles in their lives causing them emotional distress. Some examples could be events like a divorce, loss of job, family problems, etc.
If you are a friend or family member of someone who you think could benefit from therapy, you can suggest psychotherapy to them. However, you must never force someone to attend therapy if they are not ready to do so. It is important to give them space and freedom of choice. Therapy is always available and ready to help everyone who is ready to benefit from it.
Is online therapy effective?
Yes, according to both customer’s testimonials and research studies online therapy is at least as effective as traditional face-to-face therapy. In fact, there is evidence that online therapy might actually be more effective than face-to face therapy.
Some of the pros of online therapy v. traditional therapy are the following; Online therapy is more accessible and more comfortable than traditional in person therapy. Because of the convenience and flexibility that online therapy offers (without the additional stress of the commute, looking for daycare, etc.), individuals who choose online therapy are more likely to continue with therapy and therefore receive more of its benefits.
Research indicates that people are more likely to talk openly when they are not in physical proximity and online therapy seems to be perfect as a solution. People feel most comfortable in their own environments, surrounded by familiar objects in which they can find emotional comfort if needed.
There are also people who prefer online therapy because they feel that it's more suitable with their personalities or the types of mental health issues they are facing. For example, social anxiety could make one possibly think twice about physically going to therapy where they would likely have to wait in the reception area of the therapist’s office surrounded by people.
Online therapy might be the best option for you and some of the reasons are briefly described above. If you have any doubts or want to talk more about it, please do not hesitate to contact The Mental Health Centre.
Can I attend couples' or family therapy alone?
Yes, you can definitely attend couples’ and/or family therapy alone! Sometimes it is even advisable to do so. There are a lot of reasons as to why someone would choose to attend therapy alone. If you wish to change your own behaviours, attitudes, and feelings towards your partner and/or your family, attending therapy alone might be ideal for you.
Sometimes partners or family members do not wish to attend therapy because they might not believe that it can help them or simply because they are too busy. If this is the case, and you wish to start therapy, therapy is available to you and it can be very beneficial for your relationship with your partner, kids and/or family.
How long do I need to attend therapy to see results?
There is not one specific number of therapy sessions that one needs to attend to see results. Every person is unique, with different wants and needs. Even though some people might be able to see results only after a few sessions, it is important to give yourself time to receive therapy’s full benefits. Therapy requires advanced self-knowledge and reflection, and that requires time. Therapy is most fruitful, when it is done consistently over a longer period of time. In fact, research has indicated that the longer the period of time that one attends therapy, the more results they will likely see.
It is important to have reasonable expectations for your therapy sessions in order to understand your progress. You are encouraged to talk to your therapist as often as you need about the course of the therapy and your goals. We are here to listen.
How can therapy help me during Covid-19?
During these uncertain times our mental health must be a priority. The consequences of Covid-19 have been dramatic. More and more people choose to start therapy for the first time. Therapy has many benefits among of which, providing emotional relief and helping us develop coping methods for the new normal.
Therapy’s effects have been deemed to be highly effective for helping clients better deal with issues that emerged during the pandemic. Therapy can also help with issues that existed earlier and got intensified during the pandemic. Common topics that many clients wish to address are: loneliness, anxiety, depression, grief, etc.
If you think that the pandemic affected your mental health in any way, please contact us today to see if our services can help you.
The Mental Health Centre
"I’m very grateful for choosing the Mental Health Centre. The therapist helped me overcome my fears and anxieties. In the sessions, I felt truly heard and fully accepted. The therapist showed empathy for my experiences and feelings. After only some sessions I started living a contempt life. My circle even noticed the positive difference between before I started therapy and now. I myself feel the positive shift in my mood, confidence, and mental health in general."
"We reached out for help before finalizing a divorce with my partner. With the help of the therapist, we decided to give our marriage another change. I am so glad we found the Mental Health Centre. Our therapist helped us redefine our marriage. We gave each other another chance and we started fresh. Now all our bad days are behind us. We are happiest than ever, enjoying each other and our bond everyday. We could never have reached this happiness without the help of The Mental Health Centre."
"We decided to start family therapy because we had some serious communication problems in our family. We are all very different from each other, making it hard to understand each other, a situation that was leading to frequent fights with one another. This was disturbing both our family’s and our personal inner peace. After 10 sessions we are now in a much better place, and our family’s bond is strongest than ever. Looking forward to continuing family therapy and learning to not only communicate, but also celebrate our differences on a daily basis."
