Let's look at this way. Have you ever gone to a friend, a coworker, or a loved one to ask them what they think about something, or how should you handle a particular situation?
I'm sure it didn't take you long to answer those questions.
Every single one of us can use counseling at some point or another in our lifetime whether from a personal relationship or a professional.
There are certain times when you cannot, by yourself, resolve issues. You can't merely ask a friend what they think either. Getting help from a skilled professional in the mental health field can make a difference between peace of mind, a positive plan and living in spiraling turmoil.
The wonderful thing about counseling is that it is multifaceted.
There are so many areas in our lives where we can benefit from counseling. The techniques, tools and interventions are numerous.
As I have been asked this question in various ways, the final answer will always remain the same. You are ultimately the best person to know when you need no help and when you need significant help to get through life.
The beauty of it is when you are not cajoled into seeking counseling, you do it because you want to, the rewards can be beyond your wildest dreams!
