You Can Save Your Relationship & Feel Better Right Away
Is your life turned upside down? Are you suffering through unbearable emotional stress, personally or in a relationship? Are you contemplating the scary prospect of a divorce? Have you begun to hate your job or career and see no way out? Are your kids driving you crazy and you feel like a failure as a parent? Do you have chronic illnesses and seem to live in doctors’ offices? Are you having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep? Do you have trouble concentrating, getting motivated and feel exhausted?
Life is full of dark potholes, detours and unexpected hardships. It’s often difficult to find your way into the light without the help of a professional. But how do you go about finding the right help? How do you choose a therapist who will be able to help you feel better right away?
Why See a Clinical Psychologist?
All of the helping professionals are referred to as “therapists.” How do you know if the therapist you need should be a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Clinical Social Worker, Marriage Counselor, Psychotherapist, Hypnotherapist or Family Therapist? All of these professionals are referred to generically as “therapists.”
In short, a Licensed Clinical Psychologist has earned a Ph.D. (9 or 10 or more years of college training and an internship) where the Clinical Social Worker and Family Therapist or Marriage Counselors are usually Masters level therapists. Psychiatrists are physicians who work primarily with emotional issues that require medication to manage the symptoms.
Always be certain that the therapist you choose is currently licensed in your State, because the titles “Psychotherapist, Counselor and Hypnotherapist,” for example, are not regulated titles and can be used by unlicensed, uneducated people.
Regardless of the education and experience level of the therapist, however, you must also be completely comfortable with that expert, because your comfort level is an essential ingredient in successful therapy.
