Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be crazy to seek Oxford therapy. Nor do you have to be on the brink of an emotional meltdown before you decide to schedule that therapy appointment. But at the same time, therapy isn’t necessary every time your life takes a turn for the worse, especially if you have an available strong support of friends or family. Most people can benefit from seeing a therapist at some point in their lives, sometimes it is just difficult deciphering when that should be. That is, it is not always terribly obvious when someone might need to see a therapist. Here are some signs that indicate you may wish to see a therapist.

If you suffer from agonizing sadness, hopelessness or anger, these could be issues that can be resolved through counseling. Other indications you are suffering too much include drastic changes in eating habits and sleeping more or a lot less than usual. If you find yourself withdrawn from family and friends and you don’t feel like yourself anymore, then it’s time to seek help from a professional. If you have thoughts of death and suicide, then call for help immediately.

If you need the use of alcohol or drugs to help you feel better or cope with everyday life, you need to see a therapist. If you are unable to deal with these urges, you could probably use a boost in your coping skills.

Stay tuned to these posts and we will further exam reasons you might want to utilize the skills of your Oxford therapist.
