How do I know it is time to look for professional psychological psychotherapy?

Many people are still afraid to talk about psychological problems or difficulties in their relationship. But some of them might feel the need to talk to someone, who is an experienced professional. No online information or counseling could replace this personal consultation!

You should consider professional advice, if your personal problems are affecting your quality of life and social functions at school, work or at home for more than a month. If your problems are long-lasting people tend to adjust in a dysfunctional way, using food, alcohol, drugs or overworking to reduce frustration or severe psychological problems. This must cause severe problems on the long run.
