How Can Counseling Help Me? How Does It Work?
We believe that everyone can benefit from working with a committed mental health professional. Whether you’re struggling with a serious mental illness, need marriage counseling, or you simply know that there’s room for improvement in your life and you could use some guidance. Whatever it is you need or want assistance with, a counselor, therapist, or life coach at Thriveworks Counseling in Midlothian is here for you. Here are a few topics they often address in counseling:
- Everyday stressors
- Relationship issues
- Work/life balance
- Grief and loss
There are plenty of other topics discussed in counseling—it’s impossible to name them all! Still, you probably would like a better idea or understanding of how exactly counseling can help you and how the process will unfold. Take Morgan, for example.
Morgan is having trouble sleeping at night. As soon as her head hits the pillow, her mind starts racing—even when she’s had the most exhausting day. She can’t seem to get rid of these unwanted thoughts: thoughts about her boyfriend being unfaithful, thoughts about how tiring work will be tomorrow, thoughts about her family coming down with terrible illnesses or losing them without a moment’s notice.
Morgan always assumes the worst and this bad habit is seriously harming her mental health. Fortunately, her parents convince her to talk to a counselor about this new revelation. Quickly, Morgan’s counselor concludes that she is suffering from anxiety. Over the next few months, the two discuss positive thinking.
Morgan adopts healthier habits and behaviors, and though she still needs to work at it, she’s already improving. She can now sleep at night and doesn’t feel weighed down all day every day by her anxious thoughts.
Or consider Zach’s situation.
Zach feels completely overwhelmed. A few months ago, he decided that it was time to go back to school and get his master’s—but he also had to keep up with his current full-time job. At first, he was running on stubborn determination. Sure, he was exhausted, but he barely noticed.
After a month, though, Zach realized that he was completely burnt out and suffering as a result: in addition to feeling tired and overwhelmed, he was constantly stressed, he never got to spend time with his friends, and he put self-care on the backburner. He needed to create a better work-school-life balance—but he didn’t know how.
After opening up to one of his professors, Zach decides to meet with a counselor and get there take on this challenge. They come to the same conclusion as Zach: he needs to better balance everything in his life and also make some time for self-care. His counselor helps him to map out his days, including downtime and windows to hang out with friends and family. He still considers himself a workhorse, but Zach has made some serious improvements that are bettering his overall life.
