How do I know when it’s time to start going to counseling?

“Everyone has problems,” right? Perhaps you are comparing your problems to someone else’s and you are thinking, “It’s fine, I will just handle these tough times on my own, like I always do.” Maybe you are thinking, “It’s not that bad, I just have bad days every once in a while, but I’m doing okay.” You might feel stressed and overwhelmed one day and then be in a great mood the very next day. Maybe you find yourself on a perpetual rollercoaster of emotions and you aren’t quite sure what to do. Or, you may even feel terrible most of the time, and you don’t remember when you last felt at peace.

All of these instances are reasons to start going to counseling. Additionally, there is no reason not to start therapy; as humans, we are constantly growing and changing through every phase of our lives. So, how do you know when it is time? I would say that it is always a good time to start because counseling helps people, no matter what they may be dealing with. When you feel as though you can no longer handle your problems on your own, it is a good idea (and a healthy one, too) to ask for help!
