Psychologists in Pretoria – How They Can Help You or Your Loved Ones 

Are you someone who struggles with heightened anxiety, phobias, addiction, constant worry, irritability, tension, nervousness, or depression? Currently, worldwide, there are millions of people who struggle with the exact same symptoms as yours. Let’s face it, living in the fast lane is no picnic. Not only are we burdened with terrifying news from around the world and country, but we also have our own personal tragedies that we need to deal with. If you’re finding it difficult to relax and just be, then you can greatly benefit from seeing a psychologist.

The world as we know it has changed, and life is rarely without its challenges. Today, there are many children and adults that need support to deal with both past and 21st-century issues. Some issues run so deep that they can be hard to forget, holding you back from moving forward. If you’re struggling to move on, it’s important to know that help is available. In fact, everyone can benefit from seeing a psychologist, even if it’s only once a month. Unfortunately, there are many opinionated people that think that seeing psychologists is for the unstable and mentally weak – this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, seeing a psychologist means that you care about your emotional, mental, and physical health.

The Benefits of Seeing Psychologists

Too many people believe that one should just sweep their problems under the rug and just get on with it. Sadly, stress and trauma do not go away that easily. While many people may get away with filing it somewhere in the brain and forgetting about it, the bad news is that whatever you’re trying to hide and forget always comes back to the surface. The thing about stress and trauma, if left untreated, is that it can easily manifest physically. So, you’re not just trying to stamp down an emotional and mental battle that’s going on in your head, but you’re also now dealing with body pains, sleeping problems, stomach ulcers, and a whole host of other problems. If you’ve embraced the fact that you need to see a psychologist – here are a few benefits that may interest you:

  • Psychologists are unbiased.
  • Therapy gives you a new perspective.
  • You learn that you are not alone and that many suffer the same fears or problems as you.
  • A psychologist can help turn your negative thoughts into positive thoughts.
  • Therapy can teach you coping mechanisms to get through
  • Therapy teaches you how to step over obstacles and turn them into
  • Therapy gives you the confidence to do the things you never thought you could.
  • Therapy can help those who have addictive personalities.
  • Psychologists provide a safe space where you can say whatever is on your mind.

One of the greatest things about seeing a psychologist is talk therapy. In fact, research has shown that talking about your feelings and problems has a huge therapeutic effect on the brain, especially when talking to someone trained to listen, observe, and help you manage your problems – bringing about emotional and mental growth, as well as a happier and healthier life.

It’s a known fact that therapy is expensive. If you’re not on a medical plan, we are open to negotiating payment terms at your first session. There is no need to suffer alone, and if you feel that you need to talk to someone, contact one of the leading psychologists in Pretoria, Dr Tienie Maritz
