"Only I can change my life, no one can do it for me" - Carol Burnett
For some people, deciding to get help from a psychologist is difficult, but mental health is considered to be one of the most important factors in determining the quality of your life and therefore should be given a high priority.
It is important to remember that you are not alone, and the assistance of a psychologist can really be beneficial and empowering.
There are a number of other reasons to consult with a psychologist. Good mental health can assist you to function effectively on a daily basis and achieve the goals which you have for yourself.
Furthermore, good mental health can help to address and effectively manoeuvre through challenges you may face in your everyday life. These can include but are not limited to stress, grief, depression, struggling with managing your child’s behaviour effectively, relationship issues, low self-confidence etc.
It is important to remember that psychologists work with all sorts of people with all sorts of issues, ranging from mild to severe. Avoiding the problem is not the same as solving it. Allow yourself time to consider the possibility of asking for help.
