“Any time your quality of life isn’t what you want it to be, psychotherapy can help.”

Signs that you could benefit from therapy include:

  • A sense of overwhelming, prolonged helplessness and sadness.
  • None of your efforts or help from your friends seems to improve your problems.
  • You find it difficult to concentrate on work or to carry out everyday activities.
  • Excessive worry, expecting the worst or constantly feeling on edge.
  • Your actions are harming you or others. This could include drinking too much alcohol, using drugs or being aggressive.
