Have you ever wondered if you should seek psychological counseling? Millions of people do so every year. Every person, in some phase of their life, find themselves in a position where they could benefit from counseling. It might be after a job loss, the breakup of a relationship, or the death of a loved one. Perhaps they’re feeling overwhelmed by work or stress. Ten percent of college students seek counseling each year. Depression rates are on the rise and self-esteem levels are sinking. Life isn’t always easy and when those difficult times arrive, Transformations wants to help you through the rough spots.
Who Can Benefit from Counseling?
The best answer to that question is almost anyone can gain benefits from counseling at some point in their life. Teens battle with self-esteem issues, depression, ADHD, and other frustrating conditions. Young adults deal with career related stress, parenting, and relationship issues. The middle-aged find themselves sandwiched between the needs of aging parents and their own growing family. The elderly are plagued with anxiety or health issues. Each of us is emotionally vulnerable. Everyone needs a helping hand sometimes, a shoulder to lean on, or a place to vent their emotions.
If you’ve been considering seeing a counselor but are not sure if you should, ask yourself a few questions. Has your work suffered because of your mental or emotional state? Have you been losing sleep or sleeping too much, avoiding waking up and facing reality? Have you lost interest in activities you used to enjoy? Has your appetite changed? Is your mood or actions creating stress in your relationships? Do you feel like giving up or find yourself isolating yourself from family or friends? Have you lost your sex drive? Those are all warning signals that you may need help.
What Does Individual Counseling Involve?
At Transformations, we recognize that every person is unique, no two exactly the same. That’s why you’ll work directly with a counselor to determine a personal treatment plan designed specifically for you. Your therapist will talk with you, do an evaluation of your physical and mental state and help you work out a treatment plan that can point you towards a healthier, more satisfying life.
The environment at Transformations Recovery is peaceful. We want you to feel relaxed and safe here. You can be confident the privacy of our clients is always protected so you can discuss your concerns freely with your therapist.
For many people, talking and exploring their issues with their personal counselor is the only therapy needed. Together, you and your therapist can explore your feelings and look at options to help you manage your challenges.
In other cases, a combination of counseling and medications is the best solution. Many conditions such as depression, ADHD, and anxiety disorders respond better to this dual approach. Sometimes there is a physical cause for the way you’ve been feeling and like most other physical conditions that cause discomfort, the right medication can relieve or eradicate the symptoms.
Counseling for Positive Personal Growth
Counseling isn’t only helpful for people who are depressed or dealing with other emotional or mental health issues. Many people have acknowledged that counseling has helped them achieve personal goals. Working with a therapist can help you discover obstacles that may be hindering you from accomplishing your objectives. Learning skills that help you override those issues is a big step towards enjoying personal success.
You may feel like you are unable to decide what you really want out of life or you may be struggling with low self-esteem or a lack of confidence. Speaking with a therapist is often the key to finding a way to work through the self-made roadblocks you have built in your own mind.
Everyone wants their life to be the best it can be and the team at Transformations wants that for you, too. We’ve made getting the therapy you need simple. We accept most insurance and have built a staff of highly skilled and caring counselors. If you decide you’d like to take a proactive step towards your wellbeing, why not give us a call? At Transformations, we’re ready when you are. Remember, counseling is not a sign of weakness; it’s a symbol of courage and an emblem of strength. Call us and begin your life transformations to
