When To Seek A Therapist?

 

Do you have an issue that is interfering with your daily life? Do you experience distress marked by negative thoughts, feelings, behaviors, or even a bodily sensation such as pain or fatigue? There is a lot of stigma surrounding the word “therapy,” but millions of Americans benefit from it every year. In fact, it is estimated by the National Institute of Mental Health that 1 in 5 Americans suffers from some type of mental health condition. These can be acute or chronic in nature.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may benefit from individual therapy:

 

  • Overwhelmed by emotions, such as sadness, anger, worry, or panic
  • You get sick often, which can be a sign of high stress
  • You are less productive or find it hard to concentrate
  • You experience apathy or don’t feel excited anymore
  • Isolation from friends or family
  • Oversleeping or difficulty sleeping
  • Overusing alcohol or other coping mechanisms, such as shopping or eating
  • You have trouble maintaining relationships

 

Life has highs and lows, and during lows, a licensed therapist can help you put the pieces together and help you overcome obstacles that may seem too overwhelming. Therapy cannot fix your problem – but instead empowers a person to initiate change in their own life. It can help with self-esteem, boost confidence, and affirm positive thinking patterns and behaviors. 

Talk therapy is regarded as one of the most effective tools for alleviating mental health symptoms and preventing relapse of chronic health conditions.
