1. Why and when should I come in for a consultation?
Ans:The professionals at Turning Point are trained to assess behaviors and offer interventions which can help the individual to function better at home, school and society.
2. Is there a perception that it is not necessary to consult a psychologist and it could lead to further problems?
Ans:Wrong. A psychologist can not only help the individual to become a healthy and happy person, but also pre-empt certain contentious behaviors and issues through therapy. Is it not better to seek professional help rather than rely on outdated, unscientific theories which can worsen the situation?
3. How long should one come for therapy?
Ans: It depends. Some cases may need as little as a single session. Therapy sessions are tailor made to address the issues involved and can be from 5 to 10 sessions or more.
4. Does the psychologist prescribe medication? If I am already on medication, is therapy a substitute for medication?
Ans:Psychologists and Therapists do not prescribe any medication. You can continue any form of medication you are already taking without discontinuing it. Our role is to help you understand your life situation – whether for yourself or the child – better and help you take effective decisions to enhance development and personal growth.
5. What about issues of confidentiality?
Ans:Your consultation will be private and confidential. You can be assured we do not divulge any details about our work and clients.
