If we asked you to list the challenges you’ve faced in the past month, you could probably fill up a page with answers. However, if we asked you to do the same for a friend or coworker, you might not be able to name anything.
Why is this? Too often, we don’t discuss our issues and challenges with other people. We might talk through some of our biggest problems with our closest friends but many of us keep our problems to ourselves.
This is incredibly common –– we don’t want to burden other people with our difficulties. Plus, our friends and family may not have the professional expertise needed to be truly helpful.
Thankfully, there’s another option. Working with a mental health professional can help you relieve your stress and find support for any problem you’re going through. Therapists, counselors, clinical social workers, and psychologists have the training to diagnose mental disorders, teach better mental health practices, and develop a plan to help you move forward with your life.
Working with a licensed professional from Thriveworks Counseling St Louis can help you get through life’s most difficult challenges. If you’re ready to prioritize your mental health, consider calling our office today to get started.
Should I Try Therapy or Counseling?
One of the most common myths about mental health care is that it’s only for people with extreme mental illness. The reality is that everyone goes through challenges in life and you can benefit from seeing a therapist or counselor, no matter what you might be going through.
There are a lot of reasons that someone might reach out to a mental health professional, including:
- Stress and anxiety
- Feeling depressed, sad, or hopeless
- Relationship difficulties
- Fatigue or tiredness
- Feeling withdrawn or socially isolated
- Anger, rage, or resentment
- Eating disorders
- Anger management
- Addiction or substance abuse
You can benefit from therapy or counseling if you’re experiencing any level of stress or emotional difficulty. Mental health professionals devote their lives to helping people work through their problems. If you think you’d benefit from mental health support, consider reaching out to a provider from Thriveworks Counseling St Louis today.
