Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hi, thank you for writing to us. My name is***** you tell me what dose of Paxil you take and for how long you've been taking it? Also, you mention a psychologist. Have you ever tried counseling for these thoughts and if so, did you find it helpful?
I look forward to thinking this through with you.
If you have never added counseling to your treatment plan, it can be lifechanging. There can be something magical about opening up to someone else whose job is to be your advocate, help you explore the way you think, feel and behave, and also gently push you. As far as negative thoughts, therapists that practice cognitive behavioral therapy are trained in helping people identify these thoughts and also hrlping you think of things in a new, fresh, more objective way that allows for freedom and growth. There may not be a better person than a counselor, either, to help you gain the confidence you feel you lack. http://Therapists.psychologytoday.com A great place to start your search.
Hey, any additional questions? If not, I'd appreciate you rating. It won;t affect what you have spent so far but will get me credit for time spent. Thanks!
