Counseling, Therapy, and Life Coaching in Bensalem, PA—Mental Health Services
When we feel a cold or sore throat coming on, we go to the doctor. When we break a bone, we go to the hospital. When we have a ruthless toothache that refuses to go away, we go to the dentist. The point is that when something disturbs our physical health, we seek the professional help that we need to heal—and we don’t typically think twice about it. Even those who despise going to the doctor give in when they know their health and wellbeing is at stake. But can the same be said for our mental health?
Fortunately, more and more people are seeking and receiving the mental health care they need. But some people are still hesitant to admit that they are struggling mentally or emotionally. It’s important for all of us to remember that our mental health is just as important as our physical health. And sometimes, when we’re struggling, we need some extra help and support.
If you are struggling and think that you could benefit from the help and support of a mental health professional, reach out to Thriveworks Bensalem. We have skilled, caring counselors, therapists, and life coaches who want nothing more than to help you live a happier, healthier life. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment and begin a new mental health journey.
When Should You Seek Mental Health Help?
Some people believe that the issues they struggle with are not severe enough to demand mental health help. In reality, though, counselors and therapists can (and are happy to) help clients with a wide range of problems, which vary in severity. For example, someone who has fallen into a deep depression can benefit from working with a counselor, as can someone who just broke up with their significant other and is feeling a little down. No problem is too large or small for counseling or therapy. Here are a few more issues that might lead you to seek out mental health services:
- Trauma or PTSD
- Relationship issues
- Grief and loss
- Major life transitions
- Low self-esteem
- Lack of fulfillment
- Goal-setting help
If you need help with any of the above problems, consider working with a counselor, therapist, or life coach at Thriveworks Bensalem. If you need help with another problem that is not included in this list, you can still benefit from working with a mental health professional. Call Thriveworks Bensalem today to get started.
How Is Counseling Beneficial?
Sometimes, one’s nerves or fears keep them from seeking mental health services. While it’s okay to feel nervous or scared about seeing a counselor or therapist for the first time, it’s important to understand the value that you can find in working with a skilled provider. In fact, believing in this value will help you to get passed those nerves and fears. Here’s an example of how counseling can prove valuable to one’s life:
Alex has been feeling depressed for the last few months. A week ago, he decided it was time to do something about it and booked a counseling appointment. As Alex prepares to meet his counselor for the first time, he feels nervous—but he pushes himself to go anyway. Within the first 15 minutes, Alex can tell that his counselor actually cares about how he’s feeling and how it’s affected his life. He quickly loosens up.
As the session goes on, Alex opens up about his depression. And together, Alex and his counselor come up with a solid plan for learning how to manage this depression in his future sessions. He leaves looking forward to the next time he’ll see his counselor—and for the first time in a long time he feels hopeful about his future.
Everyone’s experience in counseling or therapy is different. The counselors and therapists at Thriveworks Bensalem will get to know you and then come up with an individualized plan of care that will best help you.
