Erko Psychology strongly believe that therapy should be determined by the needs of their clients. Research shows that clients want a therapy that works, that helps them set their own goals and treats them respectfully and responsibly. The experienced psychologists at Erko Psychology use their psychological knowledge and skills to provide you with therapy adapted to your personal needs and expectations.
Therapy (psychotherapy or counselling) is a process through which you can begin to understand more about yourself, the way you think, how you see yourself, how you see others, the way you behave and so on. You can use this understanding to make changes in your life that will lead to better outcomes for you and your family. You might wish to use therapy to discuss issues in the past, a specific event for example, what your childhood was like or a difficult relationship. On the other hand, you might want to concentrate on what is happening in your life right now. Therapy can be used to address mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, phobias and dependency issues such as excessive drug or alcohol use.
