We all have difficult days…some more than others. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter, because each person’s problem is as big or as small as it seems to them.
I am observing an increase in fear, worry, sadness, loneliness, and self-doubt among my clients. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the COVID-19 pandemic triggered 25% increase in the prevalence of anxiety and depression worldwide. This may explain some of the lingering symptoms that I and other mental health professionals are seeing and treating.
Individuals come to see me because they are feeling stuck. They are worried and afraid. They are struggling with insecurities, self-doubt, overwhelming negative thoughts, loneliness, irritability, and the inability to fulfill personal goals and dreams. Some are feeling unsure about their career paths, having problems with making and keeping friends and maintaining intimate relationships. While others are dealing with family conflicts, anger management, grief and loss, and unresolved trauma.
The truth is that many of us are struggling and we cannot afford to be shy or embarrassed about getting help.
It starts off as feeling stressed, and before we know it, we are losing interest in people and things we once enjoyed doing.
We all need a safe space to process. A place where we can receive practical information to help cope with life’s challenges. Individual counseling is something that everyone should experience because it not only helps to solve current problems, but it also empowers the individual for the future, no matter what comes at them.
I understand that every behavior has a story, so I counsel with compassion and empathy, and it helps clients feel safe with me. The safety they experience in sessions with me allows them to courageously tackle the issues they present with. Clients leave my practice feeling more self-aware, secure, empowered, and confident about their future.
