Why do you need mental health ?

Consumed by overarching work pressure and family commitments, we often tend to ignore our mental health. According to a survey report by McKinsey, more than 60% of employees have experienced severe mental health conditions at some point in their career. 

Some of the glaring symptoms of mental health conditions include irritability, lack of focus, poor work performance, high sensitivity towards criticism or negative reactions etc. 

Although we think that these issues can be resolved through steady lifestyle changes,  I have seen most people neglecting these symptoms and simply going down the rabbit hole and suffering silently time and again. 

As a mental health coach and certified trainer, I, Ritu Singal, have mentored and brought significant changes to the lives of many.

In this article we will look at the different scenarios where mental coaching is needed and how I can help you achieve your dream life using a collaborative and focussed approach.

What are the common symptoms of degrading mental health?

As we traverse through our daily life, we often face challenging tasks day in and day out. In fact , as we grow older responsibilities increase. Taking care of aging parents, kids and extended family and managing work commitments  constantly can become a recipe for deteriorating mental and physical health in the long term. 

It is important not to neglect early symptoms and keep an eye out for triggers. After all, you cannot keep pouring from an empty cup all the time.

Some of the qualities that you need to look out for before consulting a life coach include:

Years of experience: You should take into consideration the number of cases and years of experience that your life coach has. A keen eye for detail, ability to actively listen and empathize with your situation is what sets him/her apart in treating your unique situation.

Specialization and certification: Life coaches are often specialized to help you in certain aspects. I am a certified life coach, trainer, teacher and motivational speaker with the John Maxwell team and have also trained under the guidance of Afreen Khan. 

Style and approach: You should also keep in mind the style and approach which the trainer follows. Is it more structured or does it have a free flowing nature ? 

It is vital to ensure that your expectations from the coaching sessions match with your trainer’s way of working so that you can get a smooth and stress free experience. 

Past feedback and testimonials: Researching previous work and how your life coach has impacted the lives of people in a similar situation as you are, is crucial. Social media handles, google reviews and public forums are good places to start looking out.
