Is Therapy Worth It?

One of the questions we are often asked at My Practice is: Is therapy worth it? Research has found that counselling can help people achieve greater success in their personal and professional lives, including happier relationships, more fulfilling careers, and financial success. If you are stressed, depressed, having trouble sleeping, or generally feel that your mental health could improve, therapy is an investment worth making.

From The Blog
Can Porn Use Cause Erectile Dysfunction or Low Libido?
Jonathan Riley
Pornography use is a widespread phenomenon in modern society, facilitated by easy internet access. While it can be a source of entertainment and sexual education for some, for others, excessive consumption may lead to various sexual health concerns, including erectile dysfunction
Protecting Yourself from Betrayal
Jonathan Riley
Avoiding situations where you might be betrayed again involves a combination of self-awareness, boundary-setting, and being mindful of red flags in relationships. While it’s impossible to guarantee that you will never experience betrayal again, there are strategies you can adopt to reduce the likelihood and to protect your emotional well-being.
Am I Addicted to Porn?
Jonathan Riley
When trying to figure out if someone is addicted to pornography, it’s a bit like trying to understand why you can’t stop dipping into a bag of chips even when you’re not hungry. It’s something that starts as a choice but can evolve into a habit that’s hard to break, even if it starts to cause problems.
Forgiving Those Who Betrayed You
Jonathan Riley
Forgiving someone who has betrayed you is possible, but it is a deeply personal decision and process that varies greatly from one person to another. Forgiveness, in the context of betrayal trauma, does not mean condoning the betrayal, forgetting what happened, or necessarily reconciling with the betrayer. Instead, it can be seen as a step toward releasing
Rebuilding Trust Through Effective Communication
Jonathan Riley
Communicating effectively with someone who has betrayed you can be one of the most difficult aspects of overcoming betrayal trauma. It requires a delicate balance of expressing your feelings, setting boundaries, and potentially engaging in a dialogue about the future of the relationship. Here are strategies to facilitate effective communication
Is Porn Addiction a Real Thing?
Jonathan Riley
Discussions about whether pornography addiction is real are as diverse and passionate as the people who participate in them. This topic comes up in everyday conversations and quickly becomes a source of heated debate online.

Internal Family Systems in Pornography Addiction
Jonathan Riley
Porn addiction is a challenging issue that many people struggle with privately, often feeling ashamed and isolated. A helpful way to understand and tackle this problem is through the perspective of Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy. This approach helps us see the problem through the roles of ‘Managers’ and ‘Firefighters’ within us, offering a compassionate and
Healing from Betrayal Trauma
Jonathan Riley
Therapy can be a highly beneficial component of the healing process for those experiencing betrayal trauma, though it may not be strictly “necessary” for everyone. The decision to seek therapy is influenced by a variety of factors, including the severity of the trauma, a person’s coping mechanisms, the available support system, and personal preferences. Below are points to consider
Healing the Exiles Through IFS Therapy
Jonathan Riley
Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy offers a compassionate and effective path to healing these wounds. At the heart of IFS is the concept of “Exiles” – parts of ourselves that carry the burdens of past traumas and emotional pain. These Exiles, when unaddressed, can significantly influence our lives, sometimes manifesting in addictive behaviours as a coping mechanism.
Can You Heal from Betrayal Trauma
Jonathan Riley
Healing from betrayal trauma is a personal process that involves dealing with a mix of emotions and changes. The path to recovery isn’t straightforward; it has its highs and lows, and what helps one person might not help another. Below are strategies that can aid in the healing process, focusing on self-care, processing the trauma, and gradually rebuilding trust and security

    Do I Need Therapy?

    Life is full of ups and downs, problems and challenges. It’s common to wonder if you actually need therapy. Admitting that you need help and reaching out can help you get back on track. Going to therapy isn’t a sign of weakness or something to be ashamed of. It’s also important to understand that you don’t need to have a diagnosed mental health condition in order to benefit from therapy.
