Therapeutic Approaches

Providing tailored services is our specialty! Regardless of the issues you are struggling with, your Bliss Therapist will utilize a variety of Psychotherapy and Counselling methodologies to ensure you receive the specialized support you are looking for.

Therapy is a process designed to produce lasting change in your life. Through weekly or bi-weekly sessions, therapy can help us gain a greater sense of peace, understanding of the world you live in, and greater resolution of your personal issues. Bliss Counselling offers a variety of therapies designed to help you achieve your well-being and personal goals. Your goals for therapy will be largely based on what you tell us during your intake session(s), we may also use specialized assessments to identify what is the best approach for you and, in some cases, where the exact problems lie if you are unsure. You or your relationship is unique, with unique personalized needs. We listen to you from the beginning to ensure your therapeutic process is tailored specifically for you.

Certain therapies like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychoanalytic Therapy are well known in mainstream culture, while others are less known but also evidenced based and very effective. Examples of these are Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Existential, Relational, and Sex Therapy. All of these types of therapy can be started here in KW at our offices in Uptown Waterloo.

While therapy may seem like a large investment of time and finances, remember it’s an investment in your life. Though it’s easy to forget, you (and your life) are important and need to be taken care of. If you have a cavity, you’d get it take care of by a dentist. The same goes for therapy. If you have a relationship, career, stress, anxiety, or family issue, seeking therapy is the right thing to do. Are you ready to do the right thing for your life? Get in touch with us today!

What is the difference between Psychotherapy and Counselling?

The terms “psychotherapy” and “counselling” are often used interchangeably: though they are different, the two can be used in unison to develop a specialized treatment plan to meet your needs. The approach usually changes as a result of the presenting issue.

Psychotherapy utilizes a treatment-based approached in response to a diagnosed mental health issue such as depression, adjustment disorder, anxiety, bipolar, mood disorders, etc.

Counselling tends to be more wellness-oriented and encompasses many forms of “talk therapy”.
