The thing is, we have to take care of ourselves to take care of others. You’ve heard it a million times, but I think it’s more true than EVER. Right now I’m navigating the long continuation of remote schooling (almost a YEAR!) as well as having a new baby. These three kids need us so badly, and we’re spread pretty thin. Cooking and cleaning and working and parenting, and barely ever having time alone. I used to have long days alone to work and relax and now I can’t remember the last time I was alone for an hour. It’s pretty hectic right now and whenever I read about BetterHelp, I get more inspired. When life feels like it’s getting on top of you, it may be a good time to seek professional help. And right now, that may be easier to do than you think.
Getting Professional Help Right Now is Easier Than You Think:
Mental Health Needs:
Our mental health often gets pushed to the side in favor of the things we can see – like overall health, diet, exercise, etc. but this can be a hindrance to your health goals. Give your mental health the attention it needs, and as much attention as you may already give your physical needs. And this can include exercise, meditation, practicing mindfulness, taking a break, and of course, seeing a counselor, and even doing so online. The pandemic makes that difficult to do. Have you heard of e-counseling? This allows you to get counseling in an affordable, accessible, and convenient way. It’s available to anyone who is struggling right now, in a variety of ways.
BetterHelp is the world’s largest e-counseling platform with the mission of making professional counseling accessible, affordable, and convenient to anyone who struggles with life’s challenges. You can get help, anytime, anywhere. Plus the counselors are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited psychologists (PhD / PsyD), marriage and family therapists (LMFT), clinical social workers (LCSW / LMSW), and board licensed professional counselors (LPC).
There are so many advantages to using BetterHelp, like that you can carry out therapy entirely online, and also communicate with therapists from anywhere in the world.
In all of my research on online counseling, I found this interesting article about Transference-Focused Psychotherapy. When looking for online counseling, you may be looking for specific methods used to treat personality disorders. This is a well structured type of therapy that meets up to two times a week, and it looks at the way an internalized belief about the self and others can affect the individual. This can lead to difficulties maintaining relationships with others. Borderline Personality Disorder is an example of a disorder that may benefit from Transference-Focused Psychotherapy. It’s amazing to me that people can seek out unique therapies online for a wide range of disorders and difficulties we may have. I wish more people knew this!
