How do I know if Psychotherapy is right for me?

Counselling/Therapy is a great way to sort out the challenges that make our lives difficult. Often we feel we must be strong and prove to the world that we can "do it alone".

Waiting and struggling on your own can be a tragic mistake. Some people suffer for years when help is just "around the corner". 

Can Psychotherapy help me? 

Consider these statements:

  • My life feels out of balance and I don’t know what to do
  • I am not sure how to make changes in my life.
  • Life feels drab and unexciting, why do I get up each day?
  • Life is overwhelming, out of control, and filled with chaos!
  • I keep ending up in the same unhappy relationships but don’t know why!
  • I lost my job and feel like a failure.
  • I am divorced and feel lost, how do I form new relationships now?
  • I have lost someone close to me and I feel numb / overloaded / emotional/ out of control.
  • I have had something traumatic happen to me and I keep reliving it
  • I am afraid of many things in my life
  • I have thoughts of suicide or self-harm
  • I feel emotional or mental pain for some reason
  • I feel numb and don’t understand why
  • People tell I am cold and insensitive
  • I have uncontrollable, annoying thoughts that just won't go away
  • I often have troubling nightmares
  • I am searching for spiritual direction in my life
  • I have experienced physical, mental, emotional, verbal, or sexual abuse
  • I get angry easily and don’t know what to do with the feelings
  • I have unresolved conflicts within my family
  • I have been doing things to excess (overeating, drugs, alcohol, sex, shopping, gambling, or work)

If you can relate to one or more of these statements, you will most likely benefit from counselling or therapy.
