Thriveworks Counseling St. Louis – Local Mental Health Services
Many people can stand up and say that mental health care is improving their lives. The challenges, hardships, and setbacks in life will always be present, but so can happiness, connection, and fulfillment. One of the ways many people are capitalizing on life’s joy is by working with a counselor, therapist, or life coach.
Mental health professionals can help their clients work through the psychological, emotional, and relational troubles they face so that they do not become stuck. Instead, these mental health professionals help their clients focus upon their own values and their own goals—living life on their own terms.
Thriveworks Counseling St. Louis understands the highs and lows of life. Our staff has helped people who are facing difficulties such as relational tension, emotional upheaval, and mental illness, and we have walked side-by-side with these clients, guiding them toward the treatment they need and focusing their attention on the life that they want.
Why Are Mental Health Services Important?
An unfortunate stigma once surrounded mental health and those who sought help from it. Many people, however, are speaking publicly about the benefits they experienced while working with a therapist, and that stigma is slowly beginning to lift. There are many more opportunities to educate people on what mental health care can look like and how it may help them.
In many ways, mental health care is similar to physical health care. Just as a person who goes to see the doctor for the flu will receive different care than someone who has experienced an injury, mental health care is unique to each client. A client fighting bipolar disorder will have a unique treatment that differs from a client who wants to reach a professional goal. What each individual needs is the driving force of mental health care.
Mental health professionals work hard to make each session a safe space for their clients. When life gets chaotic, everyone needs a safe harbor where they can relax, take a breath, feel, and think about what is happening in their lives. Thriveworks Counseling St. Louis offers that opportunity. Experienced life coaches, counselors, and therapists help clients stay focused on what is important and beneficial to them when life wants to take their attention toward anything else.
Benefits of Therapy and Counseling
One of the benefits of therapy is often that mental health professionals are adept at helping their clients avoid these distractions and pitfalls in life. One example is blaming. Finding fault is a natural but unhelpful response that most people struggle with. Instead of focusing people’s attention upon what they can do, blame focuses people’s attention upon what others have or have not done—something clients have little to no control over. Blame sidetracks people from their own healing and growth.
There is no doubt, making hard changes involves sacrifice. Therapy is not a magic bullet. Just as physical therapy is often very painful but it helps people grow stronger, so mental health care can involve short-term challenges for long-term growth. But most people who have been through that process will unequivocally say, it was worth their efforts.
