Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Wilbraham

Greetings, therapy-curious reader! How are you? Even if your answer is “fine”, take another look. Are your shoulders tight or loose? Is your breathing deep or shallow? When was the last time you slept and woke up refreshed and full of energy?

How would you like to feel?

Even for those who have considered ourselves “lucky” or “happy” their whole lives, stress can take its toll. In the face of disappointment, frustration or even downright fear, whether short-term (a big presentation) or systematic (having enough to pay the bills at the end of the month) our reaction is often to just “power through”.

But what if you took a different approach? What if you took more time to ask yourself that question we mindlessly repeat a dozen times during the day: How are you?

So where do you sign up? And what even are the benefits from speaking with a counselor, psychiatrist, or life coach? Are my problems too small (no) or strange (trust us, we’ve heard it all!)? And Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Wilbraham is here to help.

What Is the Purpose of Therapy and Counseling?

Let’s think about our tough times.

For Alex, it was her first year of college. She imagined it would be her big break, her long-awaited freedom far from the expectations of her family and the routine of her hometown. She was going to meet new people, learn all kinds of things, and push her boundaries.

But instead of the euphoric montage of quick connections, laughter-filled classes and dreamy walks across the quad with her new clique, she found making new friends just as frightening as on the first day of kindergarten. For Alex, the disappointment gave way to depression and the nervousness to anxiety. Her coping mechanism was to remain alone to avoid the anxiety of socializing — but being alone made her feel more depressed. Worse, she sensed that each day she spent in her dorm room she missed participating in campus life she had so wanted to enjoy.

Life throws challenges big and small our way all the time. The reality is that sometimes we could use a little help figuring out how to take them on. If you are in a situation in which you could use a little help, support, or guidance, consider working with a counselor.

For Alex, recognising her depression and anxiety and getting help to overcome them might have transformed the campus from a scary place to an exciting one again, full of academic and social experiences to discover on her own terms.

Counselors are mental health professionals who are trained to help people with personal challenges. Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Wilbraham has counselors, therapists, life psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and psychologists, all of whom can help you in different ways!

To see what you might get out of counseling, schedule an appointment by calling (413) 372-6208 or book an appointment online. We can set you up with a provider who has the skills, training, and experience to meet your specific needs. Call us whenever you feel ready—we’ll be here.

Do I Really Need Mental Health Help?

Lots of people choose to speak with a therapist in a time of crisis. But it doesn’t need to take an emergency to start improving your mental health.

Therapy offers many benefits, and it values you as an individual above all. You may be going through difficult times right now that require strength and focus — and you are not alone.

You may be feeling loneliness and isolation stemming from the pandemic, or even other news topics. Maybe work has gotten particularly demanding. Often small changes can accumulate stress that we don’t realize is taking a toll on us. To make matters worse, we tend to set aside our own mental health worries in order to be strong for others. This is human nature — but that doesn’t mean it is healthy.

Family dynamics have been rearranged in many cases due to the pandemic.

People in some cases have been forced together — while others are isolated far apart. No matter what the configuration, communication can suffer, with a high potential of unintended emotional spillover. Our emotions and experiences are fundamental to how we carry ourselves and it can help to speak with a professional who can pensively listen and offer advice and guidance.

Make an appointment and meet with a counselor. They will be the listener you need and you deserve to feel healthy and mentally fit.

What if I Need More? Benefits of Telepsychiatry

Sometimes emotional challenges occur with such frequency or intensity that they may be diagnosed as illnesses — that’s where psychiatry comes in.

If diagnosed by a medical professional, some disorders are treatable with medication or other measures. Thriveworks has psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners who can make that call as well as help with medication management.

Some common mental health conditions include:

  1. Anxiety disorders
  2. Mood disorders
  3. Psychotic disorders
  4. Dementia
  5. Eating disorders

None of these challenges are insurmountable. The first step is deciding to reach out.
