Schizophrenia can be an incredibly challenging and misunderstood mental health condition, but I'm here to provide understanding, support, and guidance. I'm Yidia, a compassionate psychotherapist specializing in working with individuals living with schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a complex disorder that affects thoughts, emotions, perceptions, and behaviors. It can lead to distressing symptoms, such as hallucinations, delusions, disorganized thinking, and social withdrawal. However, with the right support and treatment, it is possible to manage symptoms, improve quality of life, and foster personal growth. In my practice, I create a safe and non-judgmental space where we can explore the unique challenges you face. I work collaboratively with you and, if appropriate, your support system to develop a holistic treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. This may include a combination of therapy, medication management, psychoeducation, and skill-building techniques. My approach is rooted in empathy, respect, and empowerment. Together, we will address the impact of schizophrenia on various aspects of your life, from relationships to work, and develop strategies to enhance coping skills, improve self-esteem, and foster resilience. I understand the importance of ongoing support and the value of building a strong therapeutic alliance. With regular sessions, we will monitor your progress, adjust treatment as needed, and provide a consistent source of guidance and understanding. Living with schizophrenia does not define you or limit your potential for a fulfilling life. If you are ready to embark on a journey towards stability, self-discovery, and well-being, please reach out to schedule a consultation. Together, we will navigate the challenges posed by schizophrenia and work towards a life filled with hope, purpose, and meaningful connections. You are not alone in this journey.

Registered Psychotherapist, Psychology and Coaching Clinics
Schizophrenia affects the sufferer’s ability to determine what is real and what is not. This experience is known as “psychoses”, and can take the form of hallucinations (sensory experiences that go against reality; such as hearing people talking to you who are not there), and delusions (a strong belief that does not correspond with reality). Unlike what is depicted in pop-media sufferers of schizophrenia often experience auditory hallucinations over visual ones.
