Mental health issues are much more prominent than you may expect. In fact, 45% of Australian adults will experience a mental illness in their lifetime. Despite this, there are still societal stigmas about getting help.
If you feel sad for extended periods, or that life is getting too tough, you should seek help. Mental illness is in most cases progressive. It starts with feelings of stress, sadness or anxiety, and escalates into more serious problems.
Counsellors are trained mental health professionals. Talking to a counsellor early can stem the onset of more serious mental illness and return you back to health.
A Counselling session is a discussion. A Counsellor will listen to your concerns, without judgement, and discuss with you various options to address your concerns and help you feel better.
Talking to someone who’s trained to help you express your concerns, cope with any issues, and get your life back on track is to most clients an extremely liberating and enjoyable experience.
