What do you need to get done today? If you’re like most people, you have an ongoing list of things to do, people to talk to, chores to complete. The tasks and responsibilities rarely slow down. Even when we go on vacation to take a momentary break from our daily life, everything and more is waiting for us when we return.

When do you have time to deal with those nagging issues that never get resolved? When do you and your spouse have time to improve your communication and reconnect? When do you give attention to the goals and dreams that you placed on a shelf long ago?

Most of us are just running through the motions and merely surviving when we could be thriving. Thriveworks Charleston can help you change that. Our counselors, therapists, online counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and life coaches can help you resolve current challenges and conflicts as well as work toward goals for change and improvement. Give us a call today at (843) 480-4034 to schedule an appointment when you’re ready.

What Benefits Come from Working with a Counselor or Psychologist?

When a person has a physical ailment, like a sprained ankle or a sore throat, we all know where to turn. When we have a legal problem, it’s easy to know where to find help. But when we have mental health issues, It can be difficult to know where to turn.

If you are not familiar with counseling or therapy, it can be overwhelming to try something new. We understand this feeling, but counseling and therapy is incredibly common. It can be difficult to know how to get started, but understand that this is a very positive and beneficial step.

Whatever the reason that you are considering counseling, therapy, or life coaching, certain emotional and psychological benefits are common. Some of these include:

  • Becoming more realistic about your strengths and weaknesses.
  • Clearly defining goals.
  • Better understanding fears and negative tendencies.
  • Developing a better way to deal with your emotions.
  • Helping you to understand and cope with the past.
  • Becoming more prepared for the emotional turmoil of the future.
  • Opening yourself to new experiences and relationships.
  • Feeling more fulfilled.

We are not guaranteeing that you will achieve all of these benefits, but experiencing a few is very likely. When you have the opportunity to talk about your life, your feelings, your emotions, and your relationships, you get a better understanding of what is bothering you, what is helping you, and what steps you need to take to move forward in a healthy manner.

Talk to a Licensed Thriveworks Psychiatrist

When you’re dealing with a mental health issue, you may also find you experience physical symptoms. This could include hallucinations, insomnia, panic attacks, or low energy.

This is why having the expertise of a psychiatrist is so helpful in many cases. As medical doctors, they are highly trained in evaluating both your physical and mental health to offer comprehensive treatment.

Psychiatrists can prescribe medication to treat symptoms or address contributing factors of a mental health condition. They can also continue evaluating your symptoms throughout treatment, monitoring for potential side effects.

If you’re ready to see what a licensed psychiatrist can do for you, schedule a telepsychiatry appointment at Thriveworks in Charleston, SC.
