Why consult a psychotherapy psychiatrist?

The reasons for psychiatrist psychotherapist counselling are manifold. In general, patients consult after trying several "home-made" solutions that did not give them satisfaction.

Among all these reasons to consult, here are four examples:

I feel tired, nervous and I have trouble sleeping

Psychiatric counselling - Dr. C. Duffour - Epalinges - LausanneThe tiredness becomes more common, sleep becomes less restful, and anxiety increases with a feeling of no longer being able to deal with my daily tasks.

This situation reminded me of a stress overload at the beginning, then it looked like a burn-out and now I wonder if I'm not about to become depressed.

 

I cannot stand my spouse any more

 

Psychological counselling - Dr. C. Duffour - Epalinges - LausanneBy making an effort, the situation might have improved, but over time, I realize that it is too difficult for us as a couple and we need outside help to avoid repeating the same patterns.

I want to get this off my chest by talking, but also have the opportunity to come along with my spouse.

I would also like my therapist to see us as a family.

 

Everything is fine but I feel sad

 

Psychotherapeutic counselling - Dr. C. Duffour - Epalinges - LausanneI am very tired since I gave birth and I feel I no longer get to do anything.

My baby is fine and my husband is very supportive, but it's been several months since I have been able to put my head above the parapet.

Everything seems fine, but I'm not well.

 

I have a problem in my sex life and I would like to speak about it with a specialist

 

Premature ejaculation - Dr C. Duffour - Epalinges - LausanneI have had several girlfriends and the same problem keeps repeating itself. During sexual intercourse, I cannot control my ejaculation. Sometimes, I ejaculate before intercourse has started.
