Ready for Improved Mental Health? Life Coaching, Counseling, Therapy in Blacksburg, VA
Daily life, at times, can feel like you are spinning on a hamster wheel: always running but never stopping or getting anywhere. Maybe every day feels like the last with breakfast, work, lunch, work, errands, dinner, more work, sleep…the cycle never ends. Maybe time for friends, adventure, hobbies has vanished. Maybe you feel like you are losing your sense of self, and the daily grind has taken its toll.
At other times, life is not mundane and boringly predictable; it is out of control. An unforeseen crisis, diagnosis, or trauma can strike from out of the blue. Life can feel erratic and frightening. Maybe infidelity has been discovered in your relationship. Maybe insomnia has crept up and making life harder than it needs to be. Maybe you are suspicion that your child has been abused. Many circumstances in life can feel overwhelming and impossible.
Can you relate? Whether daily life has become drab and dull or whether a hardship has overwhelmed you, one thing is for sure—adversity is a normal part of life. Often, people’s response to this adversity is to isolate themselves. People may think, “everyone else’s life is great. No one would understand.” Or they may tell themselves, “I don’t even know whom I can trust or where I could start.” These are common and understandable thoughts. Reality, however, is that no one’s life is perfect, and help is available.
That is why Thriveworks Blacksburg exists: our mission is to help clients overcome life’s challenges and thrive. Reaching out takes courage, but for many people, starting therapy with a life coach or counselor was the first step toward improved mental health.
Setting Up Time with a Life Coach or Counselor
When life feels dull and draining or when life feels chaotic and overwhelming, one of the first things people tend to stop doing is taking time for reflection and self-care. Unfortunately, self-care and reflection are often the first steps toward healing, regardless of the problem. When people pay attention to their mind and emotions—to understand what they are thinking and feeling—they can understand the problem they face. The more they understand, the less scary it may feel. Then, people can discern a path forward and make necessary changes. A skilled therapist can guide the process of reflection and often make it more effective.
How might a life coach or counselor make a difference?
Thriveworks Blacksburg provides therapy for mental health disorders like anxiety and depression, counseling to improve relationships like family therapy and marriage counseling, as well as life coaching for career advancement.
