When To Consider Counselling and Psychotherapy

When you feel stuck.

People usually seek help from a therapist when feeling stuck with problems in two general areas.

1. Suffering

You feel awful; miserable.  It is so hard to keep facing.  Maybe you feel constantly irritable.  Little things make you snappy.  Maybe you are down in the dumps.  Activities you used to enjoy have lost their appeal.  Maybe you feel vulnerable.  Your mind races with worries, and sometimes it feels hard to breathe.

2. Functioning

Coping with day-to-day tasks and responsibilities is tough.  You know you’re capable of more, but just can’t pull it off.  This might be at work, in relationships, or in terms of your health.

Unfortunately, there is no rule limiting you to just one kind of suffering or functional impairment.  There can be several at once, and they can overlap and influence each other, in a “vicious circle” kind of way.

All of us struggle at one point or another in life, and it’s OK to get some help.

Counselling and Psychotherapy Can Help.    Contact Chris.

“If we look beyond the list of specific symptoms that entail formal psychiatric diagnoses, we find that almost all mental suffering involves either trouble in creating workable and satisfying relationships or difficulties in regulating arousal (as in the case of habitually becoming enraged, shut down, overexcited, or disorganized). Usually it’s a combination of both. The standard medical focus on trying to discover the right drug to treat a particular “disorder” tends to distract us from grappling with how our problems interfere with our functioning as members of our tribe.”

— Bessel van der Kolk (2014. “The Body Keeps the Score”) —

“To achieve the possible, we must attempt the impossible again and again.”
