People see a psychologist for a variety of different reasons; relationship breakdown, trauma, feeling stuck, life dissatisfaction, workplace difficulties, fatigue, feeling overwhelmed, wanting to offload to someone who doesn't know them, or sometimes they don't know what is wrong.
Therapy can help when;
You're feeling flat and overwhelmed a lot of the time
You feel teary or irritable regularly
You feel like you are living in a mouse wheel
Life seems like it is never good
You continually have difficult relationships
You are self medicating with drugs or alcohol
You feel no joy
You avoid thinking about the past/your feelings
You feel out of control
You feel like no one is kind in the world anymore
Your family are driving you crazy
The joy in being a psychologist is getting to know you and helping you find a new way of getting through life, where you begin to enjoy it again.
