We are here for you, every step of the way.

Counselling is a process that involves a professional therapist listening to the client and guiding them on how to manage their emotional concerns. This process allows both the client and therapist to identify challenges, change mindsets and facilitate positive changes.

Here at Sofia Wellness Clinic, our mission is to help individuals like you lead successful, fulfilling and well-meaning lives — no matter where you are starting from. This is why we offer a broad range of counselling services in Singapore to cater to your diverse needs.

Mental Health Conditions We Can Help You Manage

Depression

Depression is more than feeling sad; it refers to being in an inescapable negative mood for a long time regardless of external influence.

Anxiety

Anxiety refers to intense negative feelings of doubt and worry towards a future event. This can sometimes lead to panic attacks.

Anger Management

Individuals with anger management issues have an intense emotional response to a perceived threat or provocation.

Stress Management

Those who have problems with stress management will start to get easily irritable, fall sick easily and find it hard to sleep.

*The above list of conditions are not exhaustive.

FAQs About Counselling Services

When should I go for counselling or psychotherapy?

We recommend that you consider going for counselling or psychotherapy when or if 

  • you think about an issue for at least one hour every day
  • you’re embarrassed by the issue  
  • your quality of life has declined due to the issue
  • you’ve deliberately developed habits to cope with the issue

Other possible scenarios include loss, trauma and relationship conflicts. If you need any form of mental clarity, going for counselling may help.

What is the difference between a counsellor and a therapist?

The end goal of counselling and psychotherapy is the same — to identify goals and solutions to problems that are causing emotional stress. However, there’s a difference between each of their journeys.

Counselling typically focuses on tackling specific issues, such as stress management or addiction. It prioritises honing problem solving skills and learning methods to cope with or how to avoid such issues. This is usually shorter term than psychotherapy.

Psychotherapy focuses on a wider range of issues and works to identify an individual’s thought patterns to guide them how to better manage their thoughts and behaviour. This enables them to achieve their personal goals and improve relationships.

At Sofia Wellness Clinic, we offer both counselling and psychotherapy to cater to your unique needs.

How many sessions do I need?

The total number of sessions depends on your goal. The first 1 – 3 sessions are usually assessments of your situation and needs. 

At times, clients get what they need in 1 – 2 sessions. For clients with more complex issues that have occurred over a long period of time, they may need a longer time to work through it. You may also opt for regular sessions to ensure that you’re taking care of your mental health and emotional well-being.

What happens during the first counselling session?

The first counselling session with Sofia Wellness Clinic is called an intake assessment. There will be a comprehensive assessment of your concerns (i.e. what brings you in), relationship history, family history, and academic and career history.

The objective of this assessment is for our psychotherapists to have an accurate idea of what you are struggling with so that we can tailor interventions and treatment plans accordingly.
