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: more emotional, i.e. more down or much happier (almost elated) than usual; more anxious or tense than normal; disturbed sleep patterns – need to sleep more or inability to fall or stay asleep; eating more or less than usual; abusing substances, such as alcohol or drugs; physical problems, e.g. heart palpitations, unusual sweating or trembling which are not the result of a physical problem; difficulty concentrating or remembering; friends or relatives expressing their concern that there is something wrong; drop in school or work performance; feeling that you are not coping with everyday tasks.
