Why is my therapist looking at me so much, observing every movement?
Don’t be nervous! A professional therapist will observe your movement, physical and verbal reactions when you are talking. The reason for this is so that your therapist will be able to provide you with valuable feedback on how you can improve your state of mind and thus improving your mental health as a whole.

There are hundreds of different categories when it comes to therapy. So of course, there cannot be a one size fits all therapist out there. A good idea it to check your Therapist’s website as well as call them to confirm that they are indeed well equipped to help you with your situation. For example, here at The Beach Psychotherapy we deal with stress management, personal development, relationship, grief counseling and group therapies .
