Would I Benefit From Seeing a Psychotherapist?

All of us encounter uncomfortable feelings at some time or another within our lives. A large number of emotions such as melancholy, hopelessness, anxiety and stress normally occur naturally as a part of life. As an example, it is very normal to experience anxiety or stress prior to an interview or exams.

Where this can be a problem is when these thoughts engulf you so much that it becomes difficult for you to perform normally in your every day life. If you are worried, tearful, have eating issues, insomnia issues, have poor attention, are lacking direction, have hardly any energy and enthusiasm, are drinking alcohol or using drugs excessively, have persistant low mood, having trouble managing your temper or getting along with others, then you ought to really think about visiting a psychotherapist.
