Are you a crazy person if you feel like consulting a psychologist?

Psychology primarily focuses on the study of the mind and behaviour. Psychologists can help you when you’re changing your life, help you with relationship problems, help you make healthy lifestyle choices etc. Professional psychologists have expertise and training in assisting people to learn more adaptive ways of dealing with problems and mental health conditions. So there is no reason to think that you are crazy for wanting to consult a psychologist; it is more or less about widening your perspective.

When do people consult a psychologist? How to know that I want a psychologist?

You can ask yourself these questions to get an affirmation. Are you experiencing mental or emotional distress to the point where it is difficult to get through an ordinary day? Are you not feeling very much like yourself? Are you experiencing extreme emotions? Do you have unexplainable and recurrent headaches, stomachaches or a rundown immune system? You should consult a psychologist, immediately if you feel like having one or more of these symptoms.

How many sessions will I need to overcome my mental health issues?

It varies from person to person. Some clients come in with such textbook symptoms of a disorder that they are easily diagnosed and treated. Other times, it can take several sessions to see certain symptoms that were not present before or missed. Any good psychologist holds their diagnosis tentatively and should always be open to changing it if new evidence warrants it.

Should I consult a psychologist or psychiatrist?

Psychiatrists and psychologists are both concerned with helping people optimise their mental wellness, and both are often trained in a variety of treatment modalities. You don’t have to know exactly what you need before you reach out for help. The best place to start is with a practitioner you feel comfortable speaking to. They’ll listen to your reasons for seeking help, assess your symptoms, evaluate your medical, psychiatric, and family history, and help you decide on a course of action moving forward. And remember, many people visit more than one mental health practitioner before they find the best fit.
