Do I Need Therapy?
We can all have ‘down days’ or times when the pressures of life or work get to us; or sporadic times we just feel off colour for no particular reason. Then there are always those days when we just get out of bed on the wrong side! This is life sometimes.
It is when life events and or mental issues are preventing us from being our best self or, when they are having an impact on our daily lives, including our work and relationships, that it is time to seek help.
