When to consult Psychologist Brussels
At what point does someone need a psychologist?
There is never a good or a bad time. Whatever your problem, your worry or simply your desire to speak or to be listened to, you can call a therapist whenever you feel the need. It is your desire and your need which are at the heart of this process.
Here are some examples of specific problems which could lead to a patient consulting a therapist:
■ You feel an uneasiness at work, your working day weighs you down
■ You fear finding yourself alone, you don’t handle loneliness well
■ You feel insecure when you are with other people
■ You feel an excessive fear before exams, or speaking in public
■ You no longer get any pleasure out of doing things that used to make you happy
■ You suffer from recurring physical symptoms even though the doctor doesn’t diagnose anything
■ You have difficulty in getting up in the morning and you have no motivation for daily tasks
■ You think that you are a bad mother or father
■ You have irrational phobias, such as taking a lift or crossing the road
■ Thinking about divorce prompts profound anxiety
■ You often cry “over nothing”
■ You are going through a period of grief and are having difficulty in getting over it
■ You feel rejected by others or feel isolated
■ You obsess over life and death, loneliness, the meaning of life, choice, etc.
This list is by no means exhaustive, but brings together the recurring questions which could prompt a consultation with a therapist.
