Mental health professionals devote their lives to helping people get through life’s good times and bad times. Often, they focus on the tough times –– anxiety and depression, loss, or complicated relationships. By supporting you through life’s most challenging periods, they can help you learn and grow.
Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, but many of us put it on the back burner to focus on our families, our work responsibilities, and other parts of our lives. We forget that our mental health allows us to do well at work, be present with our families, and live a happy, healthy life. The good news is that it’s not too late to find support. Mental health professionals can help you reduce stress in your life and find more happiness.
Therapists, counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists help their clients using many different kinds of research-backed mental health care techniques. They create a judgment-free space for you to discuss any issues or challenges you’re facing, address your concerns, and alleviate any symptoms of mental disorders you may be facing.
If you think you could benefit from speaking with a licensed counselor or therapist, reach out to us at Thriveworks Counseling in Flowood, MS. One of our team members can help you schedule your first session today.
Why Pursue Therapy or Counseling?
We’ve come a long way with how we understand and talk about mental health, but there are still many common misconceptions about therapy. For example, some people think that therapy is only for people living with severe mental illness. Others might think therapy is an hour of a stranger asking, “And how does that make you feel?”
The truth is therapy can help people dealing with a wide variety of mental health issues and people dealing with short-term problems. Therapy and counseling sessions will help you manage your feelings, reflect on patterns of thought, and discuss your relationships. Mental health professionals go through years of training, giving them the skills and knowledge to help you navigate the mental health issues in your life.
Therapy and counseling sessions can help people work through a variety of issues, including:
- Self-esteem problems
- Tensions in relationships with family, friends, or significant others
- Struggles with anxiety, depression, or other mental illnesses
- Grief and loss
- Processing trauma
- Feelings of hopelessness and emptiness
- Mood swings
- Feeling unlike yourself

Psychiatrists: Could They Help Me?
Psychiatrists are medical doctors with additional training in diagnosing and treating mental health conditions like anxiety and depression. Every psychiatrist has a medical degree and can prescribe medication for their clients. While not every treatment plan involves a prescription, medication can help reduce mental health symptoms for some people, especially when combined with talk therapy.
If you’ve ever seen a mental health professional in a movie, you might picture an oversized couch and a psychiatrist looking over a clipboard at you. Our psychiatrists do things a little differently –– they meet with their clients virtually, over the phone or through a video call, so you don’t have to worry about a commute.
