The global unease and fear that has hit us in recent weeks has left us feeling vulnerable, anxious, and uncertain about the future. We feel like we are at war, but with an invisible enemy.
Many people living with diabetes are frustrated by the amount of time they spend dealing with diabetes-related problems. And, of course, they have other problems in their lives unrelated to diabetes as well. Whether they pertain to relationship struggles, anxiety, depression or work stress, people with diabetes have the everyday struggles other people have, compounded by the difficulty of managing a chronic disease.
Many people are unsure about what to expect from therapy. Thoughts and expectations about the process can prevent people from reaching out, even when they really want support and help. In Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), we help people learn how to balance their thoughts so they can reduce negative moods like anxiety or fear. We can help you do that, too!
At Ottawa South Resiliency Clinic, we teach cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) in both individual and group therapy sessions. It is a wonderful framework for understanding problems and working together as a team (client and therapist) to determine what to work on first.
