It is difficult for many people to ask for help from others.  Accepting that one cannot always solve one’s own problems makes some feel weak or needy, and can cause:

• Personal and stress-related concerns

• Relationship concerns

• Health concerns

Despite the fact that human beings are wired for connection, many have been so let-down by those on whom they have relied that the idea of not needing others is the only way they have been able to live.

And in today’s fast-paced, never-enough-time-for-anything, high-tech world, seeking help for emotional pain from a friend can be a huge disappointment that reinforces the idea of not asking, or feeling the need, for help.

Because of the mind-body connection, complicated unprocessed feelings can cause serious health and behavioral problems, including:

Personal and stress-related concerns:

• Difficulty sleeping

• Tension coupled with indigestion, heartburn or nausea, constipation or diarrhea

• Frequent temper loss

• Increased frustration or suppressed anger

• Ongoing sadness

• Anxiety or frequent mood swings

• Loss of interest in normal activities

• Inability to concentrate

• Feeling stuck or ineffective

• Inability to make decisions, large or small

• Not able to cope with life, feeling out of control

• Relationship concerns:

• Relationship difficulties

• Excessive  and continuing irritability with others

• Shutting down

• Intimacy problems

• Decreased sex drive

• Wanting to be left alone

• Excessive emotion at small irritations

• Loss of sense of humor

Health Concerns:

• Tension headaches or migraines

• High blood pressure

• Unusual fatigue

• Tremors, nervous twitches, or tapping

• Neck and back tension

• More frequent flu, colds, or asthma attacks

• Loss of appetite

• Overdrinking, overeating or undereating

• Increased coffee or cigarette consumption

• Substance abuse

 

These concerns need support. If you see yourself in what is described above, Vallier Therapy can help you identify what you want, and build the skills to move toward a life that is really worth living.
