Deciding whether to seek professional care is usually a personal decision. What is considered an inconvenience by one person could be a crisis to another. Different people tolerate levels of pain differently. But, there are times when professional counseling should always be considered. These involve life-threatening situations such as severe depression and suicide. At times other than personal crises, whether or not to seek counseling is entirely a personal decision. Counseling involves both correction (trying to change what is not working) and enhancement (trying to improve what is already a positive). Professional counseling provides a way for clients to restore their emotional, spiritual, and mental health. Professional counselors have the experience, training, and objectivity to help the restoration process move faster than without professional help. If you are not satisfied with how you are managing your life, the pain you are experiencing is too great, or you feel stuck and do not know how to move forward, consider seeking professional help.
