Are You Worried About Your Emotional Wellbeing?

There are all sorts of reasons why people may want to seek professional help for psychological issues. The demands of everyday life can sometimes be overwhelming, particularly if you are coping with an illness, or have problems within your family or relationship. At other times, you may need support to cope with a life-changing event, such as the death of someone you are close to, job loss or divorce. 

Sometimes, people may start indulging in damaging behaviours or increasing their intake of alcohol or drugs. If your behaviour is causing problems for you or those around you, it may be time to seek some professional support to address the underlying issues that are contributing to your harmful conduct. 

 Therapy is not just for people who are experiencing difficulties. It can help you to get to know yourself better and to grow. However, if you are experiencing any of the following signs, you may benefit from seeing a psychologist: 

Difficulty concentrating which may be detrimental to carrying out everyday tasks or keeping focused on work.

Excessive worrying and feeling on edge.

 Feeling of helplessness, sadness or being overwhelmed.

Your problems do not seem to improve despite your efforts.

You are causing harm to yourself or others through your behaviour, eg. drug use, drinking too much alcohol or being aggressive.

Using substances, such as drugs or alcohol, seems to be the only way you can cope.
