Signs Of Alcoholism

For some, one drink during happy hour is plenty. These adults can take a sip of alcohol, and then stop drinking for the day. But there are some people who just can’t stop with a sip. These people might have an alcohol use disorder.

According to National Council of Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, there are a few signs of alcoholism:

  • Tolerance to the impact of alcohol, so more drinking is required to bring about the same effect
  • Withdrawal symptoms between bouts of drinking
  • Loss of control over how much or how often alcohol is consumed
    A wish to stop drinking, but an inability to follow through
  • A tight focus on alcohol, leading to neglect of one’s job, family, friends, or hobbies
    Continued use of alcohol, even though it leads to problems

At VVFC, we help you overcome alcohol dependence through specific therapy practices which will enable you to get back to a normal life.

What Is Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks.

There are certain levels of this disorder, including bipolar I disorder, bipolar II disorder, cyclothymic disorder as well as other unspecified specific disorders.

Usually, this disorder takes places within manic or depressive episodes and may have certain kinds of events, from having trouble sleeping to having very little energy.

At VVFC, we help our clients overcome the most serious everyday life problems, including addiction, couple & marriage therapy, mental disorders, individual therapy, etc.

What Is Home-based Therapy

Home-based therapy takes place at the home of a person in therapy rather than in an office. It can help people who have difficulty getting to private practices or mental health facilities.

Factors that could keep someone from getting care include money issues, age, chronic medical issues, agoraphobia, and responsibilities at home or work.

Community health organizations and child protective agencies provide many home-based therapy programs. Private practice therapists may offer in-home sessions if it seems to be the most beneficial form of treatment, whether access to care is a problem or not.

Why You Should Not Consider Online Therapy

One of the main disadvantages of opting for an online therapist is that you will never get support for instant crisis. Let’s say you’re having a suicidal thought, your therapist may not help too much in this case, or – even worse – he might not be available at all.

There also plenty of other cons for online psychotherapy, including: unreliable technology, it’s not suitable for those who are facing psychiatric illness, online therapy is also lacking meaningful language (for instance, the therapist doesn’t have real “access” to your voice signals, body language signals, etc).

At VVFC, we offer complete life coaching services in Las Vegas, so don’t hesitate to contact us.

Psychotherapy Is ‘The’ Biological Treatment

Neuroscience surprisingly teaches us that not only is psychotherapy purely biological, but it is the only real biological treatment. It addresses the brain in the way it actually develops, matures, and operates.

It follows the principles of evolutionary adaptation. It is consonant with genetics. And it specifically heals the problematic adaptations of the brain in precisely the ways that they evolved in the first place.

Psychotherapy deactivates maladaptive brain mappings and fosters new and constructive pathways.

Signs Of A Good Therapy

Have you ever though about how much your therapy helped? If you’re not sure, here are some of the signs of a good therapy:

Everything’s in your hands now. Which means that you no longer feel uncomfortable with the problems that you had in the past. If you learned something from therapy is that you now know how to deal with those problems.

You’re simply feeling better. In case you don’t feel nervous or stressed anymore, it’s because you also learned how to manage crucial situations. Feeling relieved it’s a sign of a good therapy.

Have more self control. Not only you learned how to manage crucial situations, but you’re the one who decides for himself, much more than you did in the past.

Increased confidence. If you’re feeling that fear is gone and that your confidence reached new heights, that’s also a good sign of a good therapy.

How Couple Counseling May Help

Relationships can be lot of fun, there’s no doubt about that. But still, what are going to do when something goes completely wrong, something that seems hard to overcome together?

Couple therapy may be one of the good answers. More and more couples learn how to overcome their everyday couple problems and some of them find the right path to make things even better and easier to manage.

Learning how to understand your partner better, having an open and sincere relation with your partner and finding the right way of communicating with each other are some of the positives a couple therapist can provide you with.

At VVFC, our licensed counseling therapists offer you the specific support for all types of couples, including marriage counseling, couple counseling, individual counseling & more.

How To Choose Your Best Therapist

Depending on the problems you are facing, finding the best therapist can make your life difficult, but not impossible. Trying to understand the issue you are confronting can help you find the right specialist.

Always make sure the therapist belongs to an authorized entity or association. Also, make sure the therapist is registered and that he offers full transparency in terms of services, prices, openness.

At VVFC, we provide you with complete psychotherapy and life counseling services, which you may find here.

How To Improve Your Self Confidence

Are you dealing with a low confidence? Don’t worry, we are all facing this from time to time. However, in case you’re too concerned about it, here are some ways you can boost your self-confidence.

Avoid gossip at work. Pratt says workplace gossip destroys the self-confidence of the gossiper because it reveals the gossiper’s need to be seen as “in the know” or superior to the person at whom the gossip is directed.

Deal with frustrations as soon as they occur. Resolving minor issues and conflicts in a positive way with minimum drama not only relieves your frustration, it presents you to co-workers and bosses as a competent, responsible person.

Use self-esteem affirmations to overcome negative self-beliefs that limit your initiative in the work place. Articulate the limiting belief, such as “I am not very talented” and replace it with a positive affirmation, such as “I am talented and competent on the job.”

At VVFC, we offer complete life counseling services in Las Vegas.

How To Deal With Bad Relationships

Are you involved in relationships that you’re no longer comfortable with? It’s time to relax and learn how to manage tensed relationships. Start with identifying those moments that simply suck your blood. Those colleagues, co-workers or even family members whom you believe to get you anxious must also be aware of that.

Dealing with such bad relationships is not easy until you and all those involved get aware of. If you feel you can’t manage these relationships or it comes very difficult for you to overcome them, then it’s time to have a talk to a psychologist.

At VVFC, we offer complete life coaching services which may help you overcome these bad relationships, as well.
