When you feel stuck.
People usually seek help from a therapist when feeling stuck with, and unable to improve in two general problem areas. These two areas are:
You feel awful. Tolerating the misery has become very difficult, if not overwhelming. Maybe you feel constantly irritable, to the point where you want to scream. Or so down in the dumps that you don’t care about much. Fear and a sense of vulnerability might be filling your mind with worries, or even making it hard to breathe.
The list goes on. There are many unpleasant, even disturbing feelings which can make us feel miserable. And unfortunately, there is no rule saying you are limited to only one…
Coping and effectively manage your day-to-day tasks and responsibilities have become compromised. You are not functioning at your best, and might even be facing the fact that your functioning is approaching your worst. This can be at work, in relationships, or with your health.
As with suffering, there is no rule limiting you to just one of these areas. They can overlap and influence each other, in a “vicious circle” kind of way.
