  • Anxiety: Most people experience at least a minor sense of anxiety at some point during their lives. This is natural, as life is often stressful and overwhelming. But nearly 18% of people are diagnosed with some sort of anxiety disorder through their life. This is anxiety that leaves you unable to live a normal life and may put your relationships and job in danger. Three of the most common types of anxiety are generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and panic attacks.

     

    • Generalized: Generalized Anxiety Disorder is a constant, daily worry about little things with no reason for the worry. You may have trouble sleeping, be depressed, and feel a constant weight or tightness in your chest. You spend most of your day worrying about one thing or another. Generalized Anxiety Disorder can develop both in childhood and as an adult. It usually happens after a traumatic event or time of extreme change. Dealing with it by yourself can be extremely difficult. If you seek out professional help, you can have the tools you need to move beyond it and take control of your life.

       

    • Social: Social Anxiety Disorder is the extreme fear of unfamiliar or new social encounters. This means that meeting new people, talking to strangers on the phone, or being in crowds can make you feel very scared and even make you feel paralyzed. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a common way to treat this and seeking help can help you have a life full of friendship and normal social interaction.

       

    • Panic Attacks: A panic attack is a feeling of overwhelming anxiety that causes shortness of breath, a pounding heart, and fear that you can’t overcome. If this happens frequently, it could be a panic disorder. It usually leaves a person unable to leave their bed or house and keeps them from a social life.Seeking the help of a trained psychologist can help you overcome these attacks and take back control of your life.

 

  • Driving Phobia: The ability to drive affects nearly every aspect of our lives. When a person suffers from a huge fear of driving, it can make them unable to engage in the world around them. When you seek help for this, you’ll gain coping tools to overcome the fear and be able to drive. This may include learning a calming mantra.

     

  • Sexual Assault: Whether you were sexually assaulted as a child or an adult, it can have a lasting, traumatic impact on you. Sexual assault is any touch or exposure that you do not give explicit permission for. If you were sexually assaulted, it is not your fault! If you find a mental health professional, they can help you deal with this traumatic experience and regain a sense of control for your life.

     

  • PTSD: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder occurs when a person suffers a very stressful or emotionally damaging situation. Rape, war, even divorce can cause a person to suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Symptoms include anxiety, trouble sleeping, flashbacks, and avoidance of things that remind you of the experience. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can destroy your life if you don’t seek help. Once you’re given the tools to conquer it, however, you can live a normal, happy life.

     

  • Grief: Dealing with death can be one of the hardest, but most common, experiences. Whether the person died quickly or slowly, you can miss them and have trouble accepting their death and moving on. This is ok and completely natural. While we all heal at our own pace, grief can become a problem if it is not dealt with. Seeking grief counseling can help you move past and deal with your sadness while still honoring the memory of the person who died. If you’ve recently lost someone, seeking help can be a great way to let them go with love.

  • Insomnia: Lack of sleep can make living your life difficult. It can make you prone to stress and anger and hurt your relationships and your job.

Insomnia isn’t just trouble falling asleep--it can be waking up at night, waking up too early, or not getting the quality of sleep you need.

 

  • Stress: Stress is the common feeling of being overwhelmed and out of control. While stress can be good, it can also cause many health problems and keep you from being happy. Working with a therapist can help you get the tools to deal with stress in a healthy, productive way. You can never fully be rid of stress, but you can change it and make it work for you.

 

Seeking Help

Most people could benefit from seeing a counselor at some point in their life. Even if you’re able to deal with most of your problems yourself, having a dedicated partner can help you remain healthy and even get ahead.

 

If you’re healthy, but just want someone to help you become a powerhouse who will get the most out of life, consider a life or executive coach. College students can also get the most out of their college experience by having someone to help them through it. Even the best people need help sometimes.

 

Getting help can be even more scary if you’re living with anxiety, PTSD, trauma -- all these things can make it even harder for you to get help. What will people think? Can I afford it? Will the therapist judge me? All of these are valid questions.
