Just talking these things through with a non-judgmental, trained professional can be powerfully transformative! A clinical psychologist is first and foremost an excellent listener!
A skilful psychologist will do more than just listen, though. Your psychologist will also help you think about your life and your experiences from a different angle, and help you to: 1) reduce painful feelings and 2) gain mastery and meaning in your life. Additionally, your psychologist will help you develop skills and tools to manage challenging aspects of your life (including your own emotions).
