Therapy & Counselling For Physical & Emotional Problems

What type of physical and emotional problems require therapy?: Physical and emotional problems can range from abuse, self-harm and chronic pain to loneliness, depression and low self-esteem. Your psychological wellbeing can be fragile, and something that you may normally take in your stride – a setback at work, the end of a relationship – may make you feel lower than you expect.

Sometimes there are issues in your life that you can’t control, such as chronic illness, which leaves you with a physical disability, and suddenly you find that life becomes different to the one you knew or had expected. This can lead to the many overwhelming mental and emotional problems and adjustments you will have to deal with.

Emotional problems can also manifest if you experience the death of a loved one, a sudden life change, or a family member suffering from a mental health condition. Any of these issues might cause you psychological distress or instability, and a supportive therapist may be able to help you re-balance your emotional and physical wellbeing.

Some types of therapy will help you work on solutions to solvable problems, while others will focus on finding the root causes of their emotional problems, or help them find ways to manage the challenges of their situation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Therapy For Physical & Emotional Problems?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.
