Most people know when they need to see a doctor for a physical ailment. But many don't know when the help of a psychologist might make a difference. Could you be one of these people?
Some of the signs that you may need help include: you're more emotional, i.e. more down or much happier (almost elated), than usual; you're more anxious or tense than normal; your sleep patterns are disturbed – you need to sleep more or you're unable to fall or stay asleep; you eat more or less than usual; you're abusing substances; you experience physical problems, e.g. heart palpitations, unusual sweating, or trembling; you have difficulty concentrating or remembering; your school or work performance isn't what it used to be; or you feel that you're not coping with everyday tasks.
