What is psychosocial counseling?

Psychosocial counseling is a form of therapy that focuses on the spiritual and social aspects of our humanity. In short: What's your outlook on life and how do you interact with others, in the here-and-now. Contrary to what the name might suggest, this form of therapy is intended for mentally healthy people. For people who have a temporary problem and have enough resilience to solve it (with a little assistance of a professional).

First, we''ll look for the origin of your complaint, question or problem. I will listen to your story and try to find out where things might have gone wrong. Sometimes the solution appears to lie in a direction you had not thought of. When our goal is clear, we are going to look at your problem, situation or relationship from a different angle. We do this through conversations, experiential exercises and sometimes I will give you an assignment.

Conversations, gaining insight and experimenting with new behaviors are steps to feeling better again. This allows you to tap into the alternatives already present within yourself. Therapy is a fascinating learning process, which can sometimes be painful and confrontational, but also humorous and liberating.

What does this courageous investment in yourself yield?

  • More harmony with yourself and your environment
  • Tolerance and patience
  • Self-confidence
  • Crisis resilience
  • Adequate behavior
  • Accepting attitude toward yourself and others
