The decision to see a therapist or a counselor is a very personal one, most often made during times of indecision, stress or emotional pain. The decision to seek help may also be the result of long standing issues or problems that may involve recurrent worries, frustrations, guilt, or self-defeating behaviors.
You may wish to consider seeking psychotherapy or counseling services if you or someone close to you is experiencing:
Health problems, sleep problems, or medical symptoms that cannot be explained by a physician that might stem from a psychological problem or that worsened by a psychological problem.
Relationship concerns with friends, family, spouse, partner, work etc
Feel you are stuck in any aspect of your life

Stress, anxiety or constant worries

The decision to pick up the phone and ask for help is often difficult. Yet, whatever your reasons for seeking therapy, experienced therapists know this and can help put you at ease and answer your questions. They will listen to your concerns and help you decide upon the most appropriate course of action.
