How do you gauge how healthy your personal mental health is? Perhaps have a think about these questions
Do you tell people you are ‘out of sorts today’ or ‘feeling a bit low’. When what you actually mean is that I could scream or cry?
Do you find yourself avoiding social situations, or not answering the phone?
Do you not want to bother loved ones with your worries?
Do you feel as if no-one is listening to you?
Do you feel that you are unlovable?
Do you feel that you always have to be the strong one to look after others?
Do you over analyse every situation, looking for potential problems?
Do you feel that you are not enjoying your life as much as you deserve?
Bearing in mind this is not an all encompassing list, just some generalised situations.
If you truly answered NO to all of these questions then well done, you are in a good place at the moment.
The reality is however, that sometimes in life we may feel some or all of these things. Usually it is only a temporary situation, but if it goes on and one and is not resolving itself, then perhaps it is time you spoke to someone who has an unbiased, non-judgemental view of you.
As a Therapist it is my job to help guide people through negative emotions and difficult periods of their life, in order that they can become more resourceful, happier, people. If I can help guide you to a place of stronger mental health then give me a call to arrange your free consultation to discuss this further. 07900 352324.
So let me ask you once again, How are you?
