What could be the reasons to see a psychologist?
You are currently feeling psychological or emotional distress (sadness, anxiety, tension, ...) or you are experiencing anguish; you feel that "something is wrong" but you cannot explain why or feel better, in spite of the support from friends and family.
You are coping with difficult or painful events: disease, mourning, separation, professional challenges, ...
You experience irrational and uncontrollable fears.
You are facing sleeping, eating or sexual disorders. You have an addiction.
You are going through relational difficulties or conflicts. You feel that you need to change, that you have to make decisions.
In all these cases - and many more related - my job is to help you understand your difficulties in order to find solutions for you to feel better. Generally speaking, you do not need a specific reason to go to a psychologist. There are difficult times during which it is particularly recommanded to do a psychotherapy but you can always make an appointment, anytime, with a psychologist. It is never too late, it is never too early.
Your time will be the right time.
Feel free to make an appointment on line or to contact me by phone.
