How can I tell if I should start therapy?

Updated: Feb 28, 2023


Everyone has their own process…common indications that it’s a good time to start therapy are:


Emotions:

  • 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.


Experiences:

  • 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.
