Deciding to seek support in the form of therapy is a huge decision. It can be slightly nerve-racking to open up to a complete stranger and delve into your personal struggles. You may even wonder if therapy is the right option for what you are experiencing.

Find comfort in the fact that everyone is on a unique journey, so there is no right or wrong time for you to seek therapy. Here are a few suggestions to consider if you are wondering if now is the right time to seek professional mental health support.

#1. Not Feeling Like Yourself Without Knowing Why

Mental health issues can often be very complex. You may feel certain emotions but not truly know why you are feeling that way or how to begin to feel better. If you are just not feeling like yourself and you don’t understand why then a mental health care provider may be able to help you work through that.

#2. Being Unable to Control Your Emotions 

If you are struggling to control your emotions, you may benefit from looking deeper into those emotions. What are you feeling, and why are you feeling that way? Is there anything below the surface that is causing a trigger?

#3. Abusing Substances 

If you are struggling with addiction or abusing substances, you may benefit from working with a professional. Work with a therapist to better understand your mental health and why you are making the decisions that you are making.

#4. Struggling to Process Trauma 

Trauma can be hard to process and work through in a healthy manner. If you have experienced trauma, know that you are not alone. Work with a mental health professional to learn the best skills and tools to help you understand your emotions and keep moving forward in the healing process. Facing trauma can be overwhelming. Working with a professional can help to make that process easier.

Making the choice to seek professional help is a huge step in the healing process. Everyone is on a unique path, and learning to better understand your own path is the key to success.
