We’ve all been in those situations where you don’t feel like you’re progressing at all. Like your life has just become like one of those ponds that have just filled up with moss because of all the stagnation. Like there’s nowhere to go and this problem that you’re facing isn’t fixable. Or even like you aren’t fixable and the problem is you and only you. If it’s bad enough you may even feel like the only fix is only a trigger away. It’s important to get counseling long before this happens. Professionals are always going to be able to help you turn your life around.
A counselor is able to give an outside perspective. You may be in need of counseling if…
- You are unhappy most days.
- You have excessive trouble sleeping at night.
- You worry constantly or are on edge.
- You have experienced the loss of a loved one.
- You can’t stop using drugs or alcohol.
- You have thoughts of hurting yourself or others.
- You feel overwhelmed and dysfunctional.
You can give us a call at 435-673-2899 and we will be able to set you up with an appointment as soon as possible. Although society has a belief that therapy somehow means you’re dysfunctional, it’s important to take a look at the benefits it can provide you with. Mental health is just as important as your physical health, and just like your physical health, it’s going to need checkups for your hiccups.
Nobody expects perfection, but some habits may just be plain unhealthy for your lifestyle. Addiction especially can be hard to kick no matter what substance it is. A counselor helps people find different coping mechanisms leading to an overall healthier lifestyle.
Remember therapy will always be there and don’t hesitate to get a checkup if you’re going through a hard time.
