Counseling, or therapy, is growing in popularity and prevalence, but many people still don’t quite understand what or who it’s for. In a nutshell, counseling empowers people to work through mental health challenges and improve their mental well-being. Counseling is led by licensed mental health professionals, from psychotherapists to counselors, psychologists, and social workers.
These professionals dedicate many years to obtaining the proper education, training, and experience to help their clients with many different mental health issues and concerns. For example, grief following the death of a loved one, fights or conflicts between partners, depression, anxiety, and stress.
Counseling is for anyone who is struggling mentally or looking to improve their mental health. Scheduling an appointment for counseling should be as normal as scheduling an appointment at your doctor’s office. There is no shame to be had, only pride.
If you’d like to pursue counseling services and find out what they could do for you, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Counseling Albuquerque. We have an expert team of mental health professionals who are here to serve. They can help you work through the challenges that are preventing you from living the happiest, healthiest life possible.
Do I Have a Mental Health Problem? How Can Counseling Help?
A major obstacle to receiving mental health care is one’s own recognition that there is a problem. Many of us brush off the mental health issues that begin to show themselves. For example, someone who has felt depressed for a week might tell themselves that they’re fine, and they’ll feel better with time.
In reality, though, depression doesn’t typically just get better with time. In fact, it worsens over time. This is true for many other mental health problems too, like stress and conflicts with our loved ones. Instead of just waiting for these problems to pass or resolve themselves, we must take action.
Scheduling an appointment with a counselor or another mental health professional is a step in the right direction. They can help you to…
- Open up about the difficult emotions or symptoms you are experiencing
- Understand the problem you are having in greater depth
- Manage the issue at hand, using therapy techniques and instructing self-care
- Discuss these issues with other people involved or affected
- Learn coping skills for future issues that may arise
- Live an overall better life, equipped with your new tools
Do you think you could benefit from the above? We can all benefit from talking to a third party about our problems at one point or another. The love and support we receive from friends and family members are certainly helpful, but professional guidance is another level of mental health help.
