9 Signs It’s Time To Seek Therapy

Knowing signs it’s time to seek therapy or not can be a very nerve wracking time. It is often a new experience and also, you don’t want to feel like you are weak or unusual in some way. The good news is you are neither of these things. Many people seek therapy, both those who are in need of emotional and mental support but also just general people who want to de-stress or feel more positively about life after a hard time. John, the founder of Battle of Mind & Seek A Therapy often speaks openly about having seen therapists got emotional and mental health purposes and saw just how beneficial it was to his life working with professional therapists and now lives a much happier life than he did six years ago when he first sought help.

We have compiled a short list of factors to help you think, maybe it’s time to Seek Therapy below : –

AV talks : When you start to feel a bit better from depression

31 – “The clouds are gone, it’s clear” – Brighter Days – Ronan Keating

It’s difficult to explain how it feels when the cloud shifts and I start to feel a little better. For me it’s not a gradual thing, it really is as quick as a switch – there’s no slow build up to noticing that things are less difficult, no gentle improvement, I literally wake up one morning and am aware that the darkness has gone.

That’s not to say that I feel ‘normal’ again, far from it, but yep folks I am currently back in control of my life and no longer fighting daily battles against my own brain.

It is human nature to always want to progress and to pursue comfort, happiness and freedom and most people think that there is only one way to achieve these 3 things… money.

Real experience of Post Natal Depression

25 – “Don’t ever feel like you could have done more” – Mum – Nathan Grisdale

8 – 14 May 2017 is Mental Health Awareness Week – 7 days – 7 blogs -7 Mental Health topics

Today – Post Natal Depression

As a Mum of two, and with a strong history of depression I was very aware that the odds of developing PND were not in my favour – especially when my second child was born prematurely and by emergency C-section, throwing my hormones and emotions all over the place. Although I struggled following the birth of both my babies, I don’t think I could honestly say I had PND. After my eldest was born I found it hard to adjust to life as a new Mum, then second time round, well there is nothing that can prepare you for a premature, seriously ill baby. My depression was pretty awful, but just in its normal darkness like way.

The problem with labelling people depressed or anxious

Labelling people depressed or anxious, I believe, is a big problem facing the mental health care system. I myself, the founder of Battle of Mind, was once labelled clinically depressed, suffering from acute social anxiety and at ‘clinical’ risk of suicide after taking a test that suggested I was 2 points scoring a full house on being sectioned into the British mental health system for my own safety and subscribed to the highest dose of citalopram possible. BUT, now, since recovery, I really do see a problem with the whole labelling me as someone who suffered depression/anxiety. In this blog post I am going to explore why I believe it isn’t good to make it so open to use terms such as depression and anxiety to label feelings.

22 – “With a friend at hand you will see the light” – Friends – Elton John

I have a small but perfectly formed circle of good friends who I can trust with anything, and who, no matter how hard I push away, will not budge. They have seen me at my lowest and stuck around waiting for me to stick my head out of the hole again. Our friendships have been changed because of my illness though, and it makes me really sad to acknowledge that.
