Counseling and psychotherapy with MindPro Psychological Services

Oftentimes, mental health services don't come cheap and are inaccessible. According to the World Health Organization, only 3% of government spending worldwide goes into public mental healthcare, so those who can't afford regular rates often leave their conditions untreated. There are, however, a few places in the Cebu offering their services such as MindPro Psychological Services.

MindPro Psychological Services is operated and owned by Dr. Michelle A. Cellona, a Registered Psychologist who decided to open the center to address her growing clientele. It was established in March 2015.

I was introduced to them when attending a seminar on handling difficult people and go to learn a lot from that experience as I gained the psychological perspective of dealing with difficult people, including myself.

Although the program I joined was a 'done-in-a-day' type of activity, the programs they have are tailored-fit to the company or the individual that needs the services they provide. A complimentary training consultancy and training-needs-analysis sessions are provided whenever clients seek their services.

After some individual and group activities, I got to learn about my dominant temperament which is 'PHLEGMATIC' with equal tendencies of 'MELANCHOLIC' and 'CHOLERIC'.

Temperament has nothing to do with a person’s character or their level of maturity. Temperament is roughly a cluster of inborn traits that causes you, in part, to do what you do. The four temperaments are represented by four distinct groups of “traits” or tendencies. Each cluster of traits produces a distinct manner of behavior that is different from the other groups. This temperament represents the way a person relates to others and responds to events. It is what you have observed and expect someone’s behavior to be, MOST of the time.

Getting to know oneself is the first step to improvement. When you are self-aware, you can see where your thoughts and emotions are guiding you.

Services Offered

MindPro’s basic premise lies on the idea that people have both internal and external resources that if  well facilitated, will lead to a solution to these life difficulties. They offer counseling sessions for Individual, Group, Couple, and Family.
