Issues seen more often in women include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, poor body image, and low self-esteem. Today, more than ever, women are dealing with societal pressures, discrimination issues, inequality at the work place, and trying to juggle a too often hectic schedule. Women today face the challenge of trying to meet everybody else's needs, often ignoring their own needs.
They may find that they try to be the perfect wife, mother, employee, etc., and still maintain their home, social life, and physical health. Too often women feel overwhelmed and under a great deal of pressure. As a result, women may stop engaging in adequate self-care, may experience guilt, and may feel emotionally and physically exhausted. Add to these marital problems, behavioral problems with their children, a lack of social support, and a woman can easily end up depressed and anxious. Many times women turn to unhealthy coping strategies or they shut down and sacrifice their own wants and needs.
The counselors at Healing Telephone Counselling are trained professionals wanting to help women who have a desire to change but may not know how to go about changing. Exploring issues around your needs as a woman and helping you to understand how to deal more effectively with your problems is something that Healing Telephone counselling can offer.
Healing Telephone counselors can listen to your concerns and help you work toward your goals, whether those goals have to do with improving relationships, increasing your self-esteem, teaching you assertiveness training to get your needs met in a direct and appropriate manner, or just to be there to listen and understand the struggles you may be facing. Women, by nature are relational people, and the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. By finding your voice, your meaning, your true passion, and your goals, you can begin to live a life you truly love and become the person you have always wanted to be.
What can you expect from telephone counseling?
Using the phone to talk with a counselor is not much different than what you could expect from an office visit. The therapy we offer at Healing Telephone Counselling, by way of the telephone, can be as effective, or even more effective, than the traditional in-office visits.
You may have anxieties or concerns about office visits and may not be as willing to open up and truly express your feelings and thoughts because it seems too overwhelming or intimidating to sit down, face-to-face with a counselor. By using the telephone, you can discuss without the self-consciousness you may experience sitting across from a mental health professional.
We have many professionals available to help you.
The first step to engaging in therapy is to select from our list of highly qualified professionals. You can do this by both choosing from the list of on this page, and reviewing the different the counselor's profile and listening to an audio introduction if available. Start gradually with a free consultation.
We offer a free 10 minute screening to ensure that you would like to work with that counselor, as it is important that you feel that there is a good match. Once you choose your therapist, you can begin therapy in a way that feels most comfortable to you.
It all starts with learning about your needs.
Your therapist may initially ask you questions about your concerns; explore how your issues are impacting your life, and what are some of your goals. You can choose the pace at which you want to go. This means you can slowly address your issues, or you can choose to share your problems in your initial phone session.
You can expect your counselor to be a non-judgmental, supportive individual. He or she may ask you questions about your thoughts and feelings, and help guide you to exploring issues surrounding your concerns. The counselors at Healing Telephone Counselling are invested in helping you to achieve the goals you would like. They can help provide knowledge and tools that enable you to deal more effectively with your problems.
