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.
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.
The providers at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Raleigh agree: 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 Counseling & Psychiatry Raleigh, it is our privilege to stand with our clients as they fight for their mental health. Our therapists, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and life coaches are often able to provide support and guidance that bring symptom relief, professional advancement, and personal growth. And they can do so in in-person counseling or online counseling—it’s whatever works best for you.
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. What’s the right next step to keep growing as a couple?
- Life has changed on a dime. 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? Most 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.
Family therapists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, social workers, clinical psychologists, and counselors can often help people process their feelings, stay focused upon what matters, and find the mental health care options they need.
The Benefits of Psychiatry Counseling
If you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, or another mental health issue, there is likely a physical and mental component to what you’re experiencing. As medical doctors, psychiatrists can conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your symptoms and determine an appropriate course of action.
Depending on your situation, you may benefit from medication, counseling services, psychotherapy, or a multifaceted approach. Psychiatrists are also equipped to administer exposure therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and various other forms of therapy.
