Have you ever gotten into a horrid fight with your partner, but kept it to yourself because you didn’t want your friends and family to hate them? Have you ever felt completely overtaken by stress, but kept it to yourself because you didn’t want to worry your loved ones? Have you ever felt depressed or anxious, but kept it to yourself because you didn’t want to be judged by others?
Many of us tend to keep the “tough stuff” to ourselves. We don’t want to worry our loved ones or, on the other hand, we worry about what they might think of us if we do tell them about the tough stuff. Either way, we bottle up our emotions, we sweep our problems under the rug, and we suffer as a result. The truth is that we all need someone to talk to. But that someone doesn’t have to be a friend or family member. In fact, sometimes what we need is a third party who can offer nonjudgmental feedback or simple support.
I’m a very strong believer in listening and learning from others. –Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Counselors, therapists, and other mental health professionals can step in as that third party support system. These individuals can offer their expert help and guidance, as you navigate conflicts with loved ones, learn to manage stress in the workplace or in your personal life, and when you encounter mental illness. Mental health providers can prove helpful in many other situations, too. When it comes down to it, if you’re encountering a problem that’s negatively affecting your mental health or there’s something that you’d like to talk to someone about, a counselor can help. And the counselors at Thriveworks Tennessee Counseling would be honored if you chose to work with them.
Do I Need Counseling?
Certain people do need counseling. For example, those who have developed symptoms of a serious mental illness, like depression or anxiety, do often need some form of mental health treatment to properly manage their condition. Others, like couples who are trying to recover from infidelity or another serious issue, also often need a counselor’s help if they hope to rebuild their relationship.
The better question, though, is “Could I benefit from counseling?” In our opinions, everyone can benefit from counseling. Here are a few benefits that you might enjoy:
- Improved communication
- Higher self-esteem
- Better conflict resolution skills
- Improved coping mechanisms
- Greater management of emotions
- Better stress management
- Improved relationships
- More happiness, success, satisfaction
This is a pretty great list of benefits, if you ask us. We hope that you consider working with us here at Thriveworks Tennessee Counseling to achieve the above and other benefits that will rely on your personal needs and goals.
