ARE MY MENTAL HEALTH CONCERNS SEVERE ENOUGH FOR ME TO SEE A CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST?

Psychological concerns range along a continuum from mild to severe. For example, you may be experiencing some anxiety or depressive symptoms like feeling low, hard to get motivated, loss of confidence, feeling nervous and shaky. They may not be at the severity which would indicate a diagnosis of a depressive or anxiety ‘disorder’, however they are enough to bother you, cause you or your loved ones/colleagues distress or concern. It is important to understand that you do not have to have ‘severe’ symptoms for it to be helpful or indicated to see a Clinical Psychologist for help with your mental health concerns. We often have people come into our practice stating that they feel ‘silly’ for being there asking for help because they think issues are not that ‘serious’ or as ‘bad’ as what other people have it. What we like to say to you is that, if your mental health difficulties are concerning you, or interfering with your functioning or the enjoyment you get out of life, then your concerns are important and seeing a Clinical Psychologist would be helpful.
