Everyone has their own process…common indications that it’s a good time to start therapy are:
You’ve been very emotional and unconsolable, to an extreme that can’t be explained by recent events in your life.
Anxiety has been making it difficult for you to eat, sleep, or focus.
You have been feeling numb and detached, even in cases where you would expect to have strong feelings.
You have recently suffered from a loss (which could be death, divorce, breakup, or job loss)
You have just been through a difficult transition and need to reflect on the experience to find peace and move forward.
You are having problems at work that you can't resolve.
You feel like you are stuck in a rut and have been trying to get yourself out, to no avail.
It feels like you have no control over your life.
You have been having a difficult time connecting with people or activities that generally fulfill you.
You are sick of being haunted by the same types of problems repeatedly.
Nothing seems to make you feel good anymore.
Your loved ones are asking you to find a therapist, because they can’t provide you with the type of support you seek from them.
