Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Therapy & Counselling?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is not unusual for some people to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about themselves when it comes to talking with a stranger. You may fear that you might receive judgment from the therapist, or that your  therapist is going to share their details with others.

HQ Therapy takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously, our therapists are required to maintain complete confidentiality about everything said in therapy sessions between both of you, exactly like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to work well and be 100% effective, there has to be unconditional trust built between the client and their therapist. This applies to the outside world as well, it is standard practice that therapists will make an effort not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality.

Can I Contact You For Advice About Getting Therapy?

Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive therapist can often make you feel better and help you face your problems. It feels good to be listened to and to know that someone cares about you and wants to help. It is important that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and can build a trusting relationship to help you make positive changes in your life.
