There are lots of reasons to see a psychologist – many say that everyone benefits from psychological support from time to time.
Some reasons why you might see a psychologist include –
- You or your child might be struggling to adjust to a change in your life e.g. parenthood, loss of job, grief, a break up, school
- You or your child might be experiencing anxiety, depression, stressful life events or any other mental health difficulty.
- You might not even know what’s going on, but just feel that you haven’t been ‘right’ or that your life has become more difficult.
- You might be struggling to manage a child’s behaviour.
- Your relationships may be strained or you think it could be better.
- You might want to better improve yourself or give yourself some self care
A psychologist is trained to perform a detailed assessment of your mental health and to identify what’s going on for you.
No matter what your reason for seeking help, it’s important to find a psychologist you can connect with and trust.
