We all have difficult days…some more than others, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter, because each person’s problem is as big or as small as it is to them. Life can be very challenging, even more so now with such global problem as COVID-19.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), COVID-19 pandemic triggered 25% increase in prevalence of anxiety and depression worldwide. This is huge when we consider how many individuals are affected by this increase. I personally have many clients who experienced increase in anxiety and depression during the heat of COVID-19, for many of my individual clients their families and their careers all suffered because they were suffering.
Apart from COVID-19, every day challenges can weigh us down. Stress can turn to fear and worry, which turns into anxiety and if not tended to, panic attacks. That does not even sum up the many reasons individuals need a safe space to process. I must mention family of origin problems, unresolved traumas, lack of anger management, grief and loss, career, academics… all these things create stress for us and it’s so important to have a place where we can safely process these life events. A place where one can receive practical information to help cope with these challenges and more.
Individual counseling is something that everyone should experience because it not only helps individuals solve current problems, but it also empowers them for the future, no matter what comes at them.
