Work with a Mental Health Professional to Overcome Challenges
Mental health professionals help their clients take extraordinary strides toward a happier life. Regardless of the challenge you may be facing, a therapist or counselor can assist you in finding a solution and leading a healthier lifestyle. Here are several common issues clients often present:
- Low self-esteem
- Negative thinking patterns
- Anxious or depressive thoughts
- Adjusting to major life transitions
- Feelings of loneliness or isolation
These are just a few examples of the challenges addressed in psychotherapy (talk therapy). Whatever problem you’re facing, a mental health professional will use their skills and experience to support you. Let’s delve a little deeper into how a mental health professional can provide a healthy and beneficial intervention:
- Jess has struggled with low self-esteem for as long as she can remember. It all started with the high school bullies who picked on her for being “too short and thin.” Now, it’s the women in her new office who seem to exclude her from their clique. Finally, after years of merely hoping she’d improve, Jess decides to do something about her low self-esteem and schedules an appointment with a therapist. In just a few sessions, she starts to feel an appreciation for herself again. And she can’t wait to see where she is a few months from now.
- Joseph has been preparing for this moment for the last five years. But now that the time has come and the ring is in his pocket, he feels uncertain. Is it really the right time? Are we really meant to be together? Am I going to ruin everything by proposing? For the next few months, these anxious thoughts rule his mind. Finally, however, he decides to seek out some help. In the succeeding weeks, Joseph meets with a counselor and talks through his uncertainty. He quickly realizes that his nerves are normal, and he goes on to adopt more positive thinking patterns.
- In just one single night, Alex’s life was flipped upside down. His best friend of 15 years has been gone for a month now, and he hasn’t been able to sleep since. How can he sleep with his friend gone? How can he continue living when his friend can’t? After repeatedly resisting his family’s pleas to talk to someone, Alex decides it’s time. He starts meeting with a therapist twice a week and over time shows some improvement. While he knows he’ll never stop missing his friend, he also now realizes how important it is to take extra good care of himself during this difficult time.
Life isn’t easy. It can actually get pretty hard to manage, which is why mental health professionals do what they do. They understand how difficult (and sometimes impossible) it is to get through the tough stuff alone. Whatever is going on—say you’re struggling with low self-esteem, you’ve suffered a difficult loss, or you’re dealing with something else entirely—they want to help you and they know how to help you.
Speak to a Qualified Psychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry North Little Rock
If you’re dealing with an emotional or mental disorder, contacting a licensed psychiatrist may be the first step towards improved mental and physical health. A psychiatrist is a trained medical doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental illnesses of many types. This means they are qualified to tailor comprehensive treatment plans, including medication, psychotherapy, and other therapy options.
Some psychiatrists focus on adults, while others focus on children. Some have a specialty in mood disorders while others have more experience helping clients with addiction.
If you’re struggling with a mental health condition, consider reaching out to the psychiatrists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry North Little Rock, who can meet with you via virtual counseling. We look forward to helping you find the right fit for your situation.
