What to Expect with Psychotherapy

September 12, 2018




David Collins, from the Toronto-based, Psychotherapy Referral Service that helps over 200 people every year connect with individuals as well as family and couple therapists to help them deal with their emotional and mental health issues joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Mental Health Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest David Collins discuss the following:

  1. There are people out there who may not believe that “talking about your problems to a therapist” will help them in any way. What would you say are the key benefits of therapy?
  2. For people who maybe have never experienced therapy, can you explain basically how psychotherapy works?
  3. What is PRS?
  4. How is professional therapy different from merely talking to friends and family about things that bother you?
  5. What are the indicators that a person should seek therapy?


David Collins is a Registered Psychotherapist that specializes in Emotional Disturbance, Childhood Abuse, Self-Harm, and Gender Issues. He strives to establish a strong rapport so that there hopefully will be nothing too shameful, sorrowful or unnatural, that it cannot be discussed. David believes that unlike our everyday lives, the therapeutic relationship is a unique bubble where we hopefully can feel free of the impingements of society for an hour every week to feel, consider and discuss whatever is our inner truth at the time. If in here we can get beyond the everyday self-censoring, we can engage in a real discussion of issues that may be controlling our lives, but from the shadows beyond our conscious attention.
