Individual Counseling in NYC
So many of us carry inner demons that we have a hard time dealing with on our own. Maybe we simply don’t feel like ourselves anymore, or perhaps something is just a little off. As hard as it can be to admit, you may be in need of some individual counseling to get back in touch with yourself or improve your relationships with your family (i.e. teens, children, spouse, etc.).
Alternatively,, there are times when a couple or family needs counseling, but one person refuses to go. If you’re not ready to give up on the relationship, might it benefit you to seek individual counseling on your own? These are the kinds of questions that Tammy can answer before and during individual counseling sessions.
Individual Counseling in NYC: How Do I Know If I Need Counseling?
First things first, everyone deserves to be happy. So we ask: are you happy? We are not talking bouncing off walls, turning cartwheels happy. We’re simply referring to a calmness. The peace of mind that allows you to get up every morning and go to bed every night with relatively good thoughts. Everybody has problems now and then, but it’s how we handle them and whether or not they plague our entire lives that makes the difference.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself that may help you determine whether or not to seek individual counseling:
- Do you feel like you simply can’t go about doing things the way you always used to?
- Has something really traumatic happened in your life (i.e. chronic illness, accident, the victim of a crime, neglect, abuse, etc.)?
- Have you lost something or someone that was exceedingly important to you – like heart-wrenching important?
- Are you abusing food, alcohol, or drugs in order to cope with life?
- Do you feel like you just aren’t yourself lately, exceedingly angry, or devastatingly sad?
If you answered yes to one or more of those questions you may benefit from individual, personalized therapy or counseling. Fortunately, Tammy can offer the assistance you may need.
