Signs You Should Visit A Counselor

It is not possible for me to do an all comprehensive list of when you need to see a counselor, but below I have compiled a list that may guide you in when to do so.

Symptoms that may be warning signs you need to see a mental health professional

  1. Excessive worrying or feeling sad for more than two weeks
  2. Confused thinking or problems concentrating and forgetfulness
  3. Extreme mood changes that impact negatively on relationships
  4. Feeling irritable or angry for long periods of time
