When we talk about health, we are quite often referring to our physical health. But health is much more than just the absence of disease or illness. Health includes physical, mental, and social well-being. Our mind and body are strongly connected. When our physical health declines, it can impact our mental health and vice versa. We need to pay attention and listen to what our body is telling us.
Human behavior is extremely thought-provoking as people think, feel, and behave in different ways. When we go through difficult situations in life like relationship or job loss, death, or chronic illness, it can bring along stress and distress. While no two individuals facing the same issue react and respond in the same way, the impact of daily stresses can sometimes be overwhelming and throw one out of balance.
We all have mental health and it exists on a continuum from a healthy and adaptive coping state of mind to clinically significant mental health conditions. It is a dynamic state and we can move from a negative to a not-so negative, and finally to a positive state of mind along the continuum. Understanding and acknowledging our stress, worries, unhelpful thoughts, or overwhelming emotions can help us develop a stronger relationship with our self. When we are healthy and happy, being with ourself is a positive experience. The growth and transformation that happens during this shift in our mindset can lead us towards a flourishing state of mind.
Talking to a psychologist can help you express your difficult thoughts and feelings, learn adaptive ways to deal with your challenges and stress, and create strategies to build resilience and flourish to experience an improved state of well-being.

There is no one size fits all approach in therapy. The aim is to understand your world from your point of view and create an environment in which growth and healing can take place in a co-created space. Through an integrative approach, we may explore early experiences and attachments to understand recurring patterns, thoughts, feelings, and emotions, or focus on the identified problem situation, or work on reprocessing traumatic experiences, with the aim of nurturing adaptive coping, overcoming obstacles, and helping you gain control and direction of your life.
