You will be in the presence of a skilled psychotherapist who genuinely cares and wants to foster a connection based on mutual trust and respect.
In days gone by, seeing a therapist generally meant going for traditional psychotherapy, or “talk therapy”. In this format,the therapist acts as a facilitator to the client talking about the current emotional and mental effect of prior past experiences. Depending on the individual and the circumstances, the therapist may recommend some coping techniques to help the client avoid and manage anxiety attacks, episodes of depression and bouts of self-injurious behaviour.
While this kind of talk therapy is beneficial to many people, it is not the answer for everyone. Alexandra Gusinsky recognizes and embraces the fact that everyone is different. Therefore, not everyone will respond to the same forms of treatment. At her office, she offers a wide array of mental health services that facilitate many modes of healing.
