In our last post, we were discussing reasons you may want to receive therapy in Oxford. We touched upon substance abuse, suicidal thoughts and agonizing hopelessness as causes for concern and good reasons to seek the help of a professional therapist. Here are a couple more signs that you should consider seeking the help of a therapist.

Grief is a long and difficult process to endure without the help of a supportive family or a therapist. While there will be several times throughout your life when you will suffer grief, not all are occasion to seek professional help. However, there is no shame in seeking a therapist to help get you through a particularly difficult time in your life due to the death of a loved one, a divorce or even the loss of a job.

If something traumatic has happened in your past, like abuse, neglect or some other trauma that you haven’t fully dealt with, then you may want to seek professional counseling to resolve the issue. In cases like these, the earlier you seek help, the sooner you can learn healthy ways in which to cope.

If you have completely stopped doing the things in life you used to enjoy, this is a red flag that something is just not right. If you just aren’t having fun anymore, don’t enjoy meeting new people and experiencing painful emotions, it could be a sign you need to give your Oxford therapist a call. There are studies out there that discovered the majority of people who see a therapist feel better within 7 to 10 visits.

Isn’t it time you felt better about your life?
