Getting Help from a Psychologist
An experienced, trained professional
Life in the new millennium is difficult, no doubt about it.
There have always been situations that can cause emotional stress — a death in the family, divorce, alcohol or drug abuse, raising children.
But today there are more "real life" situations that people just like you have to deal with.
"Every day I'd wonder if I was next to get the axe. Finally, I realized I couldn't fix this on my own..."
Getting laid off, or worrying about it. Fewer people doing the same amount of work. Uncertainty. Constant change. Demanding bosses.
Family and relationship problems.
"All I wanted was to be his father again, not the enemy... But I don't know how..."
Trying to make a marriage work. Troubled teenagers. Children with behavior problems or learning disabilities. Baby boomers caring for young children and aging parents. Challenges for dual careers.
Serious illnesses: the mind-body-spirit connection.
"They removed all the cancer, but to get better physically I had to get better emotionally as well..."
Preventing physical illnesses that are caused by stress. Recovering from a life-threatening illness. Learning how to live with a chronic disease.
Sometimes you need to talk to someone, someone who can help.
- When you feel like you can't do it alone.
- When you feel trapped, like there's nowhere to turn.
- When you worry all the time, and never seem to find the answers.
- When the way you feel is affecting your sleep, your eating habits, your job, your relationships, your every day life.
- When it's not getting any better.
When you need to talk to someone who can help, you need an experienced, trained professional.
There are many types of mental health providers you can choose from. What's important is that you select a provider with appropriate training and qualifications.
Psychologists spend an average of 7.2 years, in addition to their undergraduate college degree, in education and training. They possess a unique combination of scientific methods, along with substantial skills and experience in working with people who have real life problems. Psychologists study the science of human behavior, and then apply it, in professional settings. Psychologists are licensed by the state in which they practice.
A psychologist can help you identify your problems, and then figure out ways to best cope with them; to change contributing behaviors or habits; or to find constructive ways to deal with a situation that is beyond your control.
