Some common side effects of depression are difficulties functioning, maintaining social relationships and loss of interest in normal daily activities. Anxiety can leave you feeling constantly overwhelmed, uneasy, and nervous. These feelings may impact your ability to participate in day-to-day activities such as eating, sleeping, or going to work. There are many types of depression / anxiety and counselling may help you work through your symptoms.
The death of a loved one can cause both emotional and physical pain that can sometimes impair your ability to function. Grief counselling is intended to help you cope with loss, like the death of a partner, family member, friend, colleague, or pet. In the short term, grief counselling can help you navigate the aftermath of a loss and make practical decisions. In the long term, it can help you accept the loss of your loved one and adapt to life without them.
Relationships are not always easy, and it can be rocky, which sometimes can be very challenging and leads to difficulties between the individuals involved. People have both flaws and strengths. There can be difficult times in a relationship, and couples may be fearful that they will not make it through these moments. When dealing with a dispute, seeking assistance to reconcile these differences can help in working toward a positive goal that involves compromise and collaboration.
Relationships come with a lot of challenges. It can be stressful but learning how to overcome these challenges can lead to a more harmonious life. It might be age gaps, friends, family, or even careers. Whatever it might be, therapy may help to work toward a healthy relationship.
Experiencing a traumatic life event can have lasting consequences. After you have experienced trauma, it can be very difficult, you may feel at a loss as to how to process what you have been through or how you can even start to heal. You just want to experience a sense of normalcy again, seeking help to cope may provide steps towards dealing with whatever issues you may be facing.
