It’s hard to admit when we aren’t okay. Sometimes it feels like it’s easier just to sweep our emotions under the rug rather than openly deal with them. While this might not seem like a big deal at the moment… days, weeks, months of doing this can lead to overwhelming difficult emotions. Asking for help is a great way to cope with your emotions and gain the skills or insight to move forward in a healthier, happier way.
Challenges are what make life interesting; Overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” – Joshua J. Marine
If you’re struggling—maybe it’s with stress, anger, anxiety, or depression—consider reaching out for professional mental health help from a psychologist. They have the training, skills, and experience to guide and support you in a way that others can’t. At Thriveworks Counseling in Cheshire, CT, our psychologists are ready to help their clients live happy, successful lives. If there is a challenge or obstacle standing in your way, give our office a call. We’d love to work with you and provide you with the support you’re looking for.
What Is a Psychologist?
As we briefly mentioned above, psychologists are trained mental health professionals who have the skills and tools to help their clients work through the many challenges that life brings. They are uniquely qualified to help you in a variety of ways and will use a custom treatment plan to do so. If you decide to work with one of the psychologists at our office, they will first get to know you, including the challenges in your life. Then, they’ll take this knowledge and apply a variety of different therapeutic techniques and methods to help you accomplish your goals and overcome your challenges.
Psychologists do not administer medication to their clients. However, they will work closely with your primary care provider or psychiatrist if they feel like medication would be the right fit for you and your needs. If you feel like medication might be the right option for you, talk to your psychologist and they will walk you through your options.
What Areas Can Psychologists Help Me With?
