Welcome! It has been said that “the unexamined life is not worth living” (attributed to Socrates). In the broadest sense, this sentiment expresses the mission of Durham Psychological Services. Our desire is to help you examine your life, in whatever manner meets your need the most at this time. This examination may be what you need to do to reach your greatest potential as a human being; or it may be that this self-examination needs to occur in the context of some current individual, marital or family conflict. It may be that you are at a transition place in your life where self-examination needs to be an integral part of your healing; moving from one stage of life to another are times of excitement and anticipation – as well as uncertainty and sometimes even anxiety!
Perhaps you are looking for someone to come alongside you in recovery from an eating disorder, or from many of the varieties of addiction. Or it may be that your self-examination is the next necessary step in the development and maturation of your faith journey. Whichever of these needs may be pressing upon you now – we can help.
Whatever your position in life – our greatest hope is that you continue to find the greatest joy and fruitfulness – in the examined life!
