Life for almost everyone will pose its challenges. The unpredictability of life can certainly take their toll. Many people are affected by psychological and emotional difficulties and for those who are not experiencing these difficulties, the chances are that they will know someone who is.
Not all difficulties can have a significant impact upon us but others can, affecting us on a day-to-day basis. This may cause problems at home, at work, or in relationships. Some of these difficulties and experiences are referred to as ‘mental disorders’, or ‘mental illness’, although not everyone is comfortable using these terms. At Psychology Sussex we will use whichever language you are comfortable using and will help you to restore mental wellbeing and health.
What is clear is that people’s difficulties, more often than not, are understandable reactions to their circumstances and the context of their life. It can sometimes be difficult to understand what has precipitated psychological and emotional difficulties and it is very common to feel that ‘I just don’t know what’s wrong or why I feel like this’. At Psychology Sussex, we are aware that everyone has their own unique story and history. Nevertheless, there are many commonly experienced difficulties.
On the pages below, we have provided a more detailed overview of some of the sorts of difficulties that we are highly experienced in assisting people with. Even if the difficulty you are experiencing is not listed, do not hesitate to call our dedicated team as helping you is our priority.
Please also realise that however difficult things may feel now we are very used to hearing people report that they feel ‘back to themselves again’ and are able to get on with their lives after completing their sessions at Psychology Sussex.
