Starting Psychologists

What is Psychologists?

Psychologists are mental health professionals that provide psychotherapy services and diagnoses for their clients. They have more research-focused training than most therapists, as they are more medically educated and receive a more general education about therapeutic approaches and theory.

How does Psychologists work?

Thriveworks psychologists in Helotes, TX provide standard psychotherapy services, tailoring treatment to each client and their unique concerns. However, they can also provide diagnoses to clients when appropriate, something that therapists and counselors cannot do. Finally, in some states in the U.S., they are allowed to prescribe medication.

Is Psychologists conducted in person or online?

How long does Psychologists last?

Psychological treatment at Thriveworks Helotes is very individualized and specific to each client, which means that the duration of treatment is often varied depending on a client's condition or disorder, the state of their symptoms, and their specific goals.

Need more help deciding?

When you need help with your taxes, you call an accountant. When you need help with a leak, you call a plumber. So why is it so hard to ask for help with your mental health?

While therapy may be growing in popularity, that doesn’t mean the stigma surrounding mental health has disappeared completely. There is a lot of misunderstanding around mental health issues and some people are too ashamed to admit they need help, as if suffering from an illness were their own fault. Others may discount the severity of their symptoms and feel like they should be able to “shrug off” their issues on their own.

But just as there is no shame in working with a professional accountant or plumber, there is no shame in consulting with a psychologist. Doing so can help you overcome uncomfortable symptoms, develop valuable coping skills, and learn how to interact more effectively in your relationships. On the other hand, neglecting your mental health can lead to missed opportunities, substance abuse, and other self-destructive behaviors.

Talking about our problems is essential to living a healthy and fulfilling life. Mental health issues can feel isolating but our licensed psychologists are trained to offer compassionate support and expert guidance, no matter how severe or mild your issues may be. When you’re ready to make your mental and emotional health a priority, counseling psychologists are standing by at Thriveworks in Helotes, TX.

Should I Consult With a Counseling Psychologist?

You may have considered working with a psychologist but perhaps weren’t sure if it was warranted in your situation. It can be helpful to think of visiting a licensed psychologist like a check-up for your mental and emotional health. While mental health professionals do help many people in extreme duress, this isn’t their only function.

Everyone deals with problems in life. Sometimes they are specific crises like the loss of a job or the death of a loved one. Other times, they may be more chronic in nature like depression, anxiety, or body image issues that you carry with you every day of your life. No matter what mental health issues you may be experiencing, you have the power to work towards being the best version of yourself.

These are just a few of the most common reasons an individual may seek out the help of a licensed psychologist:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Lack of direction
  • Issues handling anger or stress
  • Major life transitions
  • PTSD, trauma, or abuse
  • Family problems
  • Trouble dealing with grief
  • Career uncertainties
  • Relationship or marriage issues
  • Addiction and substance abuse
  • Phobias

If you’ve been thinking of speaking with a clinical psychologist, make your mental and emotional health a priority by scheduling an appointment with Thriveworks Counseling in Helotes, TX.

What Do Psychologists Do?

Psychology focuses on the mind and its relation to all aspects of life, including behaviors, emotions, social interactions, and even your thoughts and beliefs. Clinical psychologists are licensed professionals dedicated to diagnosing and treating mental, emotional, and behavioral health issues of many types.

Clinical psychologists typically earn both a master’s degree and a doctorate degree, and go on to complete an internship or postdoctoral program. This means they are highly qualified to provide insight into many forms of mental illness.

Psychologists treat mental disorders with the help of talk therapy. This takes different forms depending on the client and the severity of their condition.

Psychologists using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), for example, will place an emphasis on analyzing your daily thought patterns and evaluating their impact on your moods and behaviors. It’s common to reinforce negative perceptions of ourselves through our daily thoughts. You may not even realize how big of an impact your thoughts are having until you verbalize them in a clinical setting where they can be analyzed and adjusted.

Even if a specific life crisis has prompted you to visit a psychologist in the short term, the long-term impact can be profound. Your psychologist can teach you coping mechanisms to better handle uncomfortable situations, painful emotions, and difficult symptoms. You may learn better communication skills that can help you in your career and your relationships. You may even leave therapy sessions with a greater understanding of your values and how to live a more fulfilling life.

If you would like to experience these benefits for yourself, licensed psychologists are standing by at Thriveworks Counseling in Helotes, TX.
