Counseling therapy may be beneficial if you have tried other avenues on your own and have had no success. A problem may be growing out of control, you could be experiencing a loss in interests, you can be feeling on the edge and unpredictable. All these are warning signs that you are not gaining control of your behaviors, thoughts and emotions.
If your symptoms are becoming worse and you are prolonging contacting a professional, stop and re-think this. A mental health therapist is a professional trained in various therapy modalities who may treat a variety of different symptoms associated with what you are experiencing. Do not be intimidated to ask for help and if you are intimidated, discuss this with your therapist. Asking for help is courageous, and is a sign that you are prepared for personal growth.
