How do you know if you need counseling?

The following conditions or situations are widely experienced and may indicate the need for professional counseling. Consider counseling services –

  • if you are suffering from depression and anxiety
  • if you are having difficulty sleeping, eating, or concentrating
  • if you or a loved one are having problems with substance dependence or abuse
  • if you are experiencing compulsive behaviors such as spending, sex, or eating disorders
  • if you are feeling persistent anger, resentment, or bitterness
  • if your relationships are highly distressed
  • if you are having marital and family conflicts

Counseling can also be helpful for those with excessive job stress or an inability to keep jobs, parents having trouble dealing with a child’s misbehavior or school problems, and individuals experiencing sexual dysfunction or physical ailments for which no medical cause can be found.
