Morgan can’t help but feel like the world is out to get her. She’s had a horrible week, and there appears to be no end in sight. She was scolded by her boss for running late two days in a row; she missed an important deadline; her car keeps giving out on her; and her boyfriend has been feeling a little depressed, which means she can’t stop worrying about him. Morgan is in a downward spiral—every bad little thing that happens to her feels like monumental. And she can’t seem to get back into her groove.
A psychologist can help Morgan better manage the stress that she is experiencing. They can also help her to consider how her negative thinking might be impacting what’s happening to her—or better yet, what she perceives to be happening to her. Morgan is engaging in negative thinking patterns, of which most of us are guilty of doing! But often, we don’t realize we’re doing it nor do we change this bad habit until it’s brought to our attention. A psychologist can fill this need and help Morgan improve in more ways than one.
“The difference between misery and happiness depends on what we do with our attention.” –Sharon Salzberg
As you can see in the example above, a psychologist can help people with stress management as well as negative thinking. They can serve other purposes too, as their focus will depend on what the individual’s specific needs are! For example, if you need help managing a mental illness or working through a conflict in your marriage, they will focus on serving that purpose instead. In summary, the psychologists at Thriveworks Bethlehem can help you improve virtually any area of your life. To schedule your appointment and begin this important work, just call (484) 241-2848.
