When To Attend Therapy in Fort Worth, TX

Are you stuck in a rut and having a hard time shaking it?  Have you attempted to fix your problems on your own but unable to fix them? We are creatures of habit.  New solutions might be necessary to help with your problem. In a previous article, I outlined several benefits of attending therapy with a therapist

If you have ever been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), substance abuse issues or any other mental health disorder, it’s highly recommended that you attend therapy with a therapist. Therapy can help you learn effective coping skills for anxiety

Even if you haven’t been diagnosed with a mental health disorder, you can still benefit from attending therapy. Are you having a difficult time coping with everything on your plate?  Or do you want to learn how to deal with fomo? If so, you might want to consider attending therapy with a therapist.

When do psychologists recommend therapy?

The American Psychological Association (APA) encourages you to consider therapy when something causes distress or interferes with some part of your life, especially when:

  • Thinking about or coping with the issue takes up at least an hour each day.
  • The issue causes embarrassment or makes you want to avoid others.
  • The issue has caused your quality of life to decrease.
  • The issue has negatively impacted school, work and/or relationships.
  • You’ve made changes in your life or developed habits to cope with the issue.

Subtle Suggestions About Therapy

Has someone told you that you should attend therapy in Fort Worth with a therapist or that you should at least consider it? Have you thought about it on and off for a while now and tired of being on the fence?  One day you are convinced you need to attend but then the next day you talk yourself out of it.  Does that sound familiar to you?  If that is the case, then I think we both know what the answer needs to be.  It’s the three-letter answer (yes)! 

The same three-letter word is my answer if you are always venting to the same people.  Don’t get me wrong.  It’s great to have supportive family and friends.  But, let’s face it, they are biased! Not to mention, is telling them going to impact your relationship with them, their relationship with your significant other, the way the perceive you or someone else in the future, etc.  Most likely no.  Therapists are unbiased and professionally trained to help you be the best you.

The 5 Biggest Life Events

We all experience stress, but a major life event is a totally different event.  It’s important to seek help and handle stress appropriately to prevent the problem getting worse.  Stress, whether from any of these 5 events or any other, can not only impact you emotionally, but physically as well. 

According to research, the top 5 most stressful life events (in now particular order) are:

  • Death of a Loved One
  • Divorce
  • Moving
  • Major Illness or Injury
  • Job Loss

Helpful Quiz

If you think you might benefit from attending therapy or uncertain if you should go, you can take a brief quiz by clicking here: Keep in mind, if you think that you need therapy, there is no need to take the quiz and you should just go ahead and get the process started. It is only 12 questions. You can do it. 

Here is some food for thought.  Even if you don’t think that you need it, you can still benefit from it! There is something to be said for being proactive and not letting the situation get worse.  Don’t let this happen to you.
