Imagine the following: You can’t stop thinking about everything that could go wrong. You’re set to start your new job on Monday, after a grueling interview process—you should feel excited, but the nerves you’re experiencing are curbing all excitement. And this isn’t the first time. You experience out-of-control worry on a regular basis about a wide range of events. You subscribe to a “worry wart” mentality, but the truth is that this worry is negatively affecting your entire life. And you don’t know what to do—about your new job or in any other instance that’s overtaken by your worry.
We don’t always know what to do or how to overcome a given obstacle. Fortunately, for instances like the one described above, a psychologist can prove helpful. In this example, your psychologist can help you understand your anxiety symptoms as well as how you can better manage your anxiety so that it doesn’t affect you on such a large scale. Psychologists can help with mental illnesses of the like as well as other mental health challenges and life issues, including processing the many difficult emotions we might experience throughout our lifetime.
“Genuine feelings cannot be produced, nor can they be eradicated… the body sticks to the facts.” –Alice Miller

What Do Psychologists Do? How Can They Help Me?
Psychologists possess doctoral degrees, which allow them to help their clients with a wide range of issues. In addition to mental illness, a psychologist can assist you if you’re experiencing relationship issues, difficult emotions like loneliness or low self-esteem, grief and loss, and more. We’ll dive into these items as well as a few other instances in which a psychologist can prove helpful:
- Relationship issues: The ugly truth is that relationships aren’t always easy—in fact, maintaining our relationships can be really hard especially when we encounter challenges like infidelity, trust issues, jealousy, and financial instability. Fortunately, a psychologist can help us to work through these challenges together and even strengthen our relationship in the process.
- Difficult emotions: In our relationships and outside of them, we experience difficult emotions like sadness, anger, regret, loneliness, low self-esteem and so on. Processing these emotions, understanding them, coping with them… all of this can prove challenging. If you find this to be true, a psychologist can help you master your emotions. While we often can’t control how we feel, we can change how we act on our emotions—and that makes a world of difference.
- Grief and loss: It doesn’t get much more challenging than losing a loved one. The grief process can be excruciating as you learn to accept the reality of your loss and live your life without the individual. Nobody is expected to manage this alone. If you have lost a beloved friend, family member, or pet, it’s important that you get plenty of support. A psychologist can provide you with that support and also guide you through your personal grief process.
- Other life challenges: We all experience unique challenges as we navigate life, from mental illness to relationship issues, difficult emotions, grief and loss, stress at work, parenting trouble, and so much more. In any case, a psychologist can provide you with the help, support, or guidance that you’re in search of.
The psychologists at Thriveworks Boston understand that your challenges are unique to you. They will work to understand your unique experiences and needs to then develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to best help you.
