I feel the need go to see a psychologist because I doubt I could deal with what is on my mind on my own. I have tried to, but some uneasiness remains.
I just fear I could not open up with a stranger as I am shy, and even with my closest friends, I struggle to put how I feel into words. Furthermore, I don't know why, but I fear that talking with a psychologist would make me feel worse than how I already feel.
So, for those of you who have already been through a psychological support, was it really efficient? What is the difference between talking to a psychologist and talking to any other random person? How did they make you feel?

It is hard at first to open up to a psychologist but after a few sessions you grow to be more comfortable with them. And yes at first it will be hard to relive certain things as you talk about them but in the long run its for the better
The difference with talking to psychologists is that they know how to read you (your mood/body language) and how to properly help you to deal with things.
At first it made me feel awkward and broken (like there was something wrong with me for having to see a psychologist). But after a while i just got over it because i was finally starting to heal, to be able to deal with things.1
