These may work to varying degrees but speaking with a professional psychologist or psychiatrist can make all the difference and move you toward your goals in a more efficient and healthy way.

What Is the Purpose of Therapy and Counseling?
Think back to a time when you really struggled. For Alex, she’s immediately transported back to her freshman year of college. This was supposed to be her big break. She was more than ready to move out of her hometown, meet new people, and expand all of her horizons. But her excitement and readiness were quickly replaced with nerves and anxiety. She thought that she’d be a natural at making new friends but found it to be more difficult than expected. Alex developed an anxiety disorder; she became fearful and timid in social situations. She was too afraid to talk to strangers and too anxious to exit her bubble of isolation.
For Alex, it’s anxiety. For her classmate, it’s stress. For her mom, it’s loneliness. For others, it’s anger, sadness, arguments with loved ones, depression, poor work-life balance. The life challenges that we might encounter are aplenty. And the reality is that sometimes we could use a little help figuring out how to confront these challenges. If you are in a situation in which you could use a little outside help, support, or guidance, consider working with a counselor.
Never be afraid to fall apart because it is an opportunity to rebuild yourself the way you wish you had been all along.” –Rae Smith

Is Therapy the Right Choice for Me?
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. You are not alone. You may be feeling loneliness and isolation stemming from social distancing. These are unprecedented times, and it is normal to feel out of sorts and exhausted. Work may be particularly demanding. If we think about how communication has changed, we have to remember weighing this may be bearing on us. Poor communication can exacerbate an already trying situation. We often set aside our own private mental health worries in order to be strong for others. This is human nature but that doesn’t mean a steep toll is not paid, often quietly and unnoticed.
Many people have been living with family in closer proximity due to COVID19 and may need to discuss family dynamics and relationship issues, including marriage and platonic relationships. These 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. You deserve to feel healthy and mentally fit.
What Type of Therapy Should I Pursue?
Maybe it’s obvious what type of therapy you need, and maybe it’s not. For example, if you and your partner are struggling to get along, you could probably benefit most from couples therapy or marriage counseling. However, if you are feeling down, worried, or just “off,” it isn’t exactly clear what’s going on. In these instances, your counselor will work to understand you better and then they can decide which therapy techniques will best help you. Either way, your counselor is on your team and they have your best interest in mind, always.
So, to help you better understand the variety of people we help, here is a list of common mental health services utilized and offered at Thriveworks Wilbraham:
