Mental Health Care in Raleigh, NC—Life Coaching, Therapy, and Counseling

Think about your health care needs. What professionals support your overall well-being? Many people see a primary care physician when they are ill or for preventative health care needs. Many also see specialized doctors—endocrinologists, oncologists, ob/gyns, cardiologists, and more. What about a trainer at the gym? Or nutritionist? Many people lean on these professionals to keep their body fit and fueled. Not long ago, most people’s list would have stopped here, but these days, more and more people are including a life coach, therapist, or counselor on this list. These mental health professionals are supporting people’s overall well-being through caring for their minds and emotions.

“People talk about physical fitness, but mental health is equally important. I see people suffering, and their families feel a sense of shame about it, which doesn’t help. One needs support and understanding.” —Actress Deepika Padukone

The staff at Thriveworks Raleigh agrees: physical health is important and so is mental health. People are whole—in their mind and body. Physical health affects mental health. Mental health affects physical health. They both matter. Unfortunately, mental health has not always received its due. Social stigmas have labeled counseling and therapy as “weak,” but the reality is that just as everyone will likely face physical health problems, they will also likely face mental health problems at some point. There is no shame in reaching out for help from a mental health professional, just as there is no shame in going to see a doctor.

At Thriveworks Raleigh, it is our privilege to stand with our clients as they fight for their mental health. Our therapists, counselors, and life coaches are often able to provide support and guidance that bring symptom relief, professional advancement, and personal growth.

Mental Health and Life’s Challenges

What are the two guarantees in life? Yes, death and taxes. Let’s add a third: life is a rollercoaster. Everyone has ups. Everyone has downs. Life is full of joys and challenges, opportunities and setbacks. How people respond, however, is not a guarantee. Think about these situations. What difference could guidance and support make for responding to these challenges and opportunities?

  • Your job is a fantastic fit. It’s just right for your experience and skills. You are well-liked and doing well. But will it be a good fit in three years? If you were to make a change, what would it be? A new career? Moving up the ladder?
  • You and your family just relocated, and your teens are not adjusting well. They are sweet kids, but it has been a rough six months since they found out they were moving. You have done what you know to be supportive, but you are out of ideas.
  • You recognize this habit is trouble. You want to stop. You have tried to stop. What started as occasional use has become daily use, and every time you take two steps forward, you take one step back.
  • You are the luckiest. Everything is going really well with you and your partner. You moved in together a while ago, and you are head over heels. You have been talking about the possibility of marriage. You are excited. You are nervous. What’s the right next step to keep growing as a couple?
  • Life has changed on a time. Your dearest friend, your confidant, your other half was here one day and not the next. Grief is overwhelming. It hurts to breathe. How could life ever be normal again?

Can you resonate with any of these situations? The good or the bad? Most like you can in some way, shape, or form. Perhaps the details differ, but the feelings are the same. When life presents an opportunity or a challenge, many people invite mental health professionals to help them navigate the emotions and the relational dynamics of their given situation. Life coaches, therapists, and counselors can often help people process their feelings, stay focused upon what matters, and find the mental health care options they need.
