COVID-19 Stress, Anxiety and Depression Brief Therapy

COVID-19 Stress, Anxiety and Depression

As the world confronts this pandemic there are so many emotions that can feel overwhelming.  Many feelings can be triggered and it may be useful to see a professional for help and perspective. As there are so many uncertainties and so many changes in routine many people find that mood changes are inevitable. That does not mean that solutions are impossible to find but sometimes a trained professional can serve as a guide for a more balanced and happier life.

Brief Therapy

Brief therapy focuses on a client's present and future, rather than his or her past and it builds solutions. Many brief therapists never explore their clients' past problems, but rather focus on the present with goals for creating a positive future.

Psychologists who offer brief therapy take a more pro-active approach to offer faster care for subjective and clinical conditions. This type of therapy creates natural resources and temporarily suspends disbelief to help the client consider a range of new viewpoints or perspectives. It provides a wider context for the client to view the present, and better understandings that can bring about spontaneous change.

Unlike other therapies that focus on the problem, brief therapy is solution-based. It removes the factors that sustain a problem and prevent change. Brief therapists understands that there are many approaches that, combined, can bring about ultimate success.
