Adam rarely has time for himself. He’s often busy with work, his partner, or family and friends. He loves all of the people in his life and often wonders what he would do without them. But there are times when Adam feels like he never gets the chance to breathe, as though he’s constantly rushing around. Though he’s done his best to manage the anxiety he feels on the inside, he knows that he’s ultimately avoiding an issue he needs to deal with.
After having dinner, Adam opened up to his father about the anxiety he’s been dealing with. Adam’s dad recommended that he talk with a mental health professional, specifically a psychologist. Adam was a bit intimidated by the prospect at first and was worried about how his father might view him if he chose to seek assistance. However, Adam’s dad assured him that counseling could be a useful resource and that seeking help should be viewed as a responsible decision, not as a weakness. Feeling encouraged, Adam is open to the possibility of attending counseling sessions to talk about his anxiety.
Many people just like Adam feel held back by fears of being looked down on or viewed as inept for seeking counseling. But at Thriveworks in Lubbock, TX, we know that anyone, at any stage in their life, can benefit from opening up to one of our psychologists. Doing so can provide you with the chance to enjoy newfound stability, independence, and freedom from your mental health concerns.
