Sometimes life can feel overwhelming due to depression or anxiety. I work with my clients in a nonjudgmental, supportive, way to find their voice and reclaim their lives.

If you feel you need help you need help. It's not about what your life's like or the people who could be worst off than you. What you are feeling is real and valid for what ever reason.

If you can feel like you need support, then you need it. Don't ever trick yourself into thinking that "other people have it worse than you do" or that "you're not feeling so bad after all", that's just stuff that your problems induce you to think, whether is an addiction or a mental health issue ( which by the way addiction is). Everybody's needs some help sometimes, you do to, you deserve it! I wish you the best.

From my own struggles with addiction, if you have to question whether you need help, you most likely do. And the thing is, theres nothing wrong with seeking help. Theres so much stigma about addiction and mental health, but we are all human, we all struggle with things. Reach out your hand dear, theres nothing wrong with needing help.

A very personal question. Do you hide your addictions, are you ashamed of what your do in your addictions, do you lie even a little bit about your addictions, are your addictions hurting those you yourself or those you love? If you answered yes to any of these then there is a good chance you need help. Needing help doesn't mean your "bad off" it just means you can start now to make things better and its never too late no matter what you've done. There is always help and hope for those that want it no matter what they've done.

Well, you are here means you are in a great emotional pain. Is it wise to argue if you should treat it or not when the help is free and available?

Everyone needs a little bit of help sometimes. It doesn't mean you're bad off, it just means that there is someone who can help you shed a little light on dark times.

This question just can't be answered in general way. It depends on you. Ask yourself whether you need somebody to help you or not.

Sometimes we feel its not important to have a help but actually in later stage of life we definitely need help i would suggest identify your problems in early stages it will be good that we can come out of it once we get into advanced stages it wil become rough hard

It's best to be on the safe side, don't put things off, there is nothing wrong with seeking help or knowing that there is support there for you.

There is no such thing as “bad off.” If you are in pain or are suffering from anything then you are entitled to receiving help. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Everyone needs help in there life one way or another.
