Reaching out for therapy in Orlando and getting help for life changes is hard. How will talking to someone you don’t know help get you through difficult times? Most people who try mental health therapy can attest that just having a safe place to talk provides immediate relief. The therapist is a sounding board that does not know you, but immediately has your best interest at heart. Experiencing a life change causing anxiety, fear, frustration, or concern is normal.
If you are asking yourself how therapy can help, examine the following reasons why it might be a good time to reach out to a therapist now.
The clients I see most often in therapy for life changes have experiences these common things:
During any life changes that feel overwhelming, many people isolate or avoid situation. The stress of the changes causing anxiety can make a person feel detached. This feeling of detachment prevents someone from experiencing the pleasurable moments in life. They can not be fully present and this can cause great sadness and discomfort. Talking to a therapist will help bring back that feeling of connection again.
When life changes quickly and we aren’t prepared for changes, the pressure to fix things or move on quickly becomes overwhelming. Many times a person goes into auto pilot and doesn’t give themselves time to process the change. When a person feels overwhelmed and does not have healthy outlets (such as counseling) they might begin to burn out, experience anxiety or panic attacks, and shut down.
Friends or family might try counseling a person or acting as a counselor giving advice to someone during a major life change. This can result in the person getting advice that is not neutral and might not be in the person’s best interest. Seeking advice from a licensed counselor is the best option here and will provide you with expert feedback designed to get you back on track quickly.
People who go through a life change feeling sad, hopeless, or depressed have been known to make rash decisions they later regret. Anytime a major life change hits (divorce, death, job loss, etc.) it is best to wait for a minimum of 6 months before making any major decisions.
Getting expert counseling and help sets you up on a path to be able to make good decisions, process your emotions positively, and develop healthy ways to deal with changes in life. There are a variety of counseling techniques that provide almost immediate relief for anyone experiencing anxiety during a life change.
