June has been a month where we transited from Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) to Phase 3 (Heightened Alert). It has not been an easy month for most of us where we have to adapt to the various changes around us. While work-from-home (WFH), and home-based learning (HBL) have created many difficulties for us last year during the Circuit Breaker, it still has not been easy for us in Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) either. Coupled with the June school holidays, many of us feel trapped again. While it may be frustrating, (although easier said than done) we have to look forward and have hope that things will be better.
Our CBT workshop sign-up for August is closed. The next intake will be for the Nov/ Dec 2021 intake. As I am typing this, seats are being taken up.
Do I need a Psychological Diagnosis / Psychiatric Evaluation? While having a Psychological Diagnosis would greatly help our mental health clinician to better formulate a treatment plan for you, not everyone requires one. Thus, it is important to discuss with your mental health clinician to find out more.
In addition, not all psychological / counselling issues have a psychological diagnosis. Some examples include emotional burnout, fear of missing out (FOMO), and workplace stress. Furthermore, having a psychological diagnosis may sometimes be even disabling for clients as this may affect their future career employment and career progression (e.g. scholarships).
Our mental health clinicians are able to perform counselling assessments during the counselling / psychotherapy sessions to identify your issues without the need for a full diagnosis.
