PSYCH NEW YORK
Psychotherapy Topics for Creative Personalities and Seekers of Self-Growth
by Helen Borel, Ph.D.
PSYCH NEW YORK has been created so I can disseminate timely behavioral medicine news, emerging psychiatric and neuroscience research developments, and discussions of various psychotherapy methods related to emotional health, creativity development, interpersonal relationships, and career aspirations - to the large numbers of people seeking to learn about and understand these and related subjects.
I intend to present this usually highly complex subject matter in readily understandable English...with every effort being made to avoid unnecessary medicalese and academic psychiatric or psychoanalytic jargon. Where the latter is not feasible, parenthetical English translations or an accompanying glossary will be provided.
Emotional Struggles in the Big Apple
New York City is the hub of outstanding healthcare, including emotional health care - as well as being the hub of the creative arts. And, as everyone in America knows, Manhattan (aka "The Big Apple") is a strong magnet for artistic, talented personalities of every stripe and genre.
The creative process and struggles that artistic types like actors, writers, musicians, dancers, painters, etc....and even inventive scientists...experience is too often little understood by family, friends and "day-job" employers. PSYCH NEW YORK will tackle these issues to help this hub's visitors deal with their unique daily challenges - as well as explaining varied mental health conditions that may be impacting their lives.
Not everything that feels distressing, of course, is a "mental illness." Experiences such as loss, grief, stage fright, anticipation of a new event, a relationship break-up, writer's block, and so forth, are not illnesses even though they make you feel feelings ranging from frustration to considerable anxiety and emotional pain. So, in PSYCH NEW YORK, I'll be discussing how you can deal with these feelings so you can succeed in your personal growth, in your relationships, and in your chosen career.
Visitors to PSYCH NEW YORK should know that my education and clinical background amply qualify me to write about this subject matter. I'm a healthcare professional with a Masters degree in Creative Writing; widely published as a medical/psychiatric/Rx drug writer, in addition to my published diverse literary writings including poetry, book review columns, short fiction, and satire.
Combined with my PhD in Psychoanalytic studies, I have a deep interest in the creative process and its healing effects on the artist, on the artist's audience, and on society at large.
My whole life is devoted to my creativity research, my psychotherapy patients, and my writing. Situated in Manhattan, I have the advantage of contact with some of the most interesting people in the world, where I enthusiastically help them confront their life challenges, heal from these, and move on swiftly to full Self-confidence, to fulfilling relationships, and to success in attaining desired job and career goals.
