Everyone experiences good times and bad times in their life –– it’s part of being human. When you’re faced with a problem, you usually have two options. You can ignore the problem and hope it never existed, or you can acknowledge the problem and work to solve it.
The first option can be tempting. In the short term, it might feel easier. But the reality is that ignoring problems can create more stress down the road. This is especially true when dealing with mental health issues –– they can get worse over time when not treated and lead to all sorts of physical and mental symptoms.
If you’ve been having trouble coping with change, making a major decision in your life, or managing the symptoms of a mental disorder, consider reaching out for professional support. Our licensed counselors, therapists, psychologists, and other licensed professionals are available to support you through life’s challenges.
Call our office today at Thriveworks Counseling St. Charles to set up your first appointment.
Reasons To See a Counselor or Therapist
You might think mental health services are only for people with severe mental health problems but this simply isn’t the case. While therapy or counseling can help people with severe mental illnesses, they can also support people with mild mental disorders as well as anyone who is going through a difficult period in their life.
How do you know if you should seek out professional support? You might consider working with a licensed professional counselor or therapist if you are:
- Dealing with a mental disorder like anxiety or depression
- Seeking diagnosis and treatment for a mental health issue
- Going through a major life change
- Grieving the loss of a loved one
- Needing help navigating your career or making life decisions
- Having trouble in your relationships
- Abusing substances or exhibiting addictive behaviors
Most of us take care of ourselves when we’re feeling sick –– why shouldn’t we do the same for our mental health? Checking in with a therapist or counselor can help get you through difficult periods in your life and build a happier, healthier future. If you want to work with a mental health professional, call our office today at Thriveworks Counseling St. Charles.
