ARE YOUR STRUGGLING WITH EMOTIONAL ISSUES?

Accessing Mental health issues can be a bit of a detective work But, this can be a useful check list to check the state of your emotional health and decide whether outside intervention is needed. Feeling overly emotional. Overworking. Snapping at the slightest thing. Mood Swings. Loss of purpose. Feeling unappreciated.

COUNSELLING & THERAPIES

Many people seek counselling not only because of emotional problems. but because they have identified specific goals or issues that they wish to work on. Others may be encouraged by family, friends, or medical professionals to seek help, and in some cases, a person may be mandated to attend therapy as part of a court ruling or by a parent or guardian.
