Would I Benefit From Seeing a Psychotherapist?

All of us encounter uncomfortable feelings at some point or another within our lives. A number of emotions such as melancholy, hopelessness, anxiety and stress commonly occur as a part of normal life. As an example, it is quite normal to experience anxiety and stress prior to a performance or an exam.

Where this can be a problem is when these emotions overwhelm you so much that it becomes challenging for you to perform normally in your daily life. If you are nervous, tearful, have eating issues, insomnia problems, have poor attention, are lacking direction, have very low energy and enthusiasm, are drinking alcohol or using drugs to the extreme, have persistent low mood, having difficulty managing your temper or getting along with people, then you ought to very seriously think about visiting a psychotherapist.
