Please note that these psychological services are not available as yet. However, RQ Psych plans to make such services available well into the second half of the year 2023.
Psychotherapy involves having one-on-one sessions between a psychotherapist and client(s) to help treat/remedy mental health problems, life challenges and/or psychiatric disorders.
During psychotherapy, one learns about their condition, emotions, thoughts, and/or behaviours, as well as how to cope with distress in a healthy manner.
Individual psychotherapy, often referred to as “talk therapy” or simply “therapy”, entails an adult or an adolescent having one-on-one sessions with a psychotherapist.
Play therapy refers to psychotherapy using play. It is offered to children between the ages of 3 and 12 years, as children this age tend to use play as their medium of communication.
Couples Therapy entails having psychotherapeutic sessions with 2 individuals; be it a romantic couple, friends, colleagues, etc. The main objective of such therapy is to improve the quality of the relationship between the two individuals.
Group therapy involves a psychotherapist having sessions with a group of individuals simultaneously. There are different types of groups, with varying goals and objectives, but one of the main objectives of group therapy is to initiate a sense of belonging or relatability through sharing experiences, areas of difficulty, and receiving/offering understanding and empathy.
Similar to group therapy, family therapy entails a psychotherapist having psychotherapeutic sessions with family members simultaneously. The main objective of family therapy is to help all members understand each others’ feelings, thoughts, behaviours/motivations so as to improve healthy communication, and ultimately, how the family unit functions.
Online Psychotherapeutic/Teletherapy sessions entail having online individual psychotherapy sessions.
It is not the primary or preferred manner of offering psychotherapeutic services, but it is only used when all other options (e.g. ability to meet physically due to distance or timing) have been exhausted or are impossible at the time.
Psychological/Psychoeducational workshops are sessions between a clinician and an individual/group to help educate and empower them on a range of situations and topics. This is done through intensive discussions and activities related to the topic(s).
In addition, during such sessions, practical information and/or recommendations on specific topics are offered as the goal is to facilitate insight into personal growth or areas of difficulty, and learn healthy strategies where necessary.
Psychoeducational events are curated to help expand the knowledge of mental health professionals and lay-persons on various mental health issues and/or experiences. These events include seminars, conferences and symposiums.
Seminars are formal meetings that take place between a group of individuals (i.e. mental health professionals & laypersons/general public) who share a common interest. The event is usually of a small-scale, with a small number of attendees, who explore a particular mental health problem, situation or topic for that session as a means to empower and expand knowledge.
Conferences are formal meetings that take place between a group of individuals (i.e. general public included) with shared interests. The conferences involve having formal discussions on general topics of interests, with no practical activities included. The event usually happens for a day or more.
Symposiums, which are similar to conferences, are meetings at which a number of individuals meet to formally discuss a particular subject. These types of meetings are only open to experts in a particular field. The focus is on more specific topics or subjects and usually take one day.
Formal talks given by a clinical psychologist at external events (i.e. wellness events, including at schools & workplaces, summits, symposiums, conferences, etc.) & various platforms (i.e. podcasts, TV shows & other media platforms) to help empower with knowledge and/or lived experiences.
