Would I Benefit From Seeing a Counsellor / Psychotherapist?

We all encounter uncomfortable feelings at some time or another within our life.  A number of emotions such as disappointment, hopelessness, anxiety and stress naturally occur as a part of normal life. As an example, it is quite normal to experience anxiety and stress prior to a job interview or exam.

Where it is a problem is when these thoughts overwhelm you so much that it becomes hard for you to perform normally in your every day life. If you are nervous, tearful, have eating issues, insomnia issues, have poor attention, are lacking direction, have very low energy and enthusiasm, are consuming alcohol or using drugs excessively, have persistant low mood, having difficulty managing your temper or getting along with others, then you ought to very seriously think about visiting a psychotherapist.

Because everyone is different this can be a very difficult question to answer without talking to you in much more detail. For short-term brief therapy working with a particular issue, you can expect to need to plan for approximately 6 to 12 sessions. For more deep rooted, life-long, chronic, or challenging issues necessitating longer term psychotherapy or counselling, more sessions will obviously be needed. Sessions typically take place weekly, however this can be negotiated to accommodate your circumstances.
