Therapy helps you find a way forward and maintain a balanced healthy life – it’s the light at the end of a tunnel. Carla Alves da Silva works closely with Medical Practitioners to help individuals overcome depression.
Suicide The most extreme act of despair and hoplessness is to take your own life. Often the person considering suicide believes that those left behind are better off without them or it's the only solution to relieving the pain and grief they are feeling.
Carla has worked with many of those 'left behind' - the sons, daughters and families of those who felt that suicide was their only option. No matter how old your parents, children or family are, a person who takes their own life leaves behind deep psychological wounds that are difficult to heal.
If you are contemplating taking your life, please STOP and consider the following - if you were on a train journey and the train entered a tunnel would you throw away your ticket and jump off? Or would you stay on to the end of your journey?
A combined psychotherapeutic approach and medical intervention can support people on the road to recovery
