Having a bad day sometimes, for a few days or weeks is very normal but what if this condition persists for a long period of time? Emotional problems refer to the psychological problems that occur due to the inability to manage the stressful situations in one’s life or any other problem in interpersonal life or professional life and there could be many other reasons too.
The anger, anxiety, fear, excitement, unusual happiness, joy etc. can be some of the emotions that are displayed abnormally when the person experiences any situation with respect to the environment. Emotional symptoms can be both positive and negative and depend upon the environmental situations. Emotional variations as per the different situations are quite normal to occur as these are transitory in nature. But in some cases, the emotional imbalance can lead to a disorder because of the persistence of the unstable emotional states or when there is a disproportion between the emotional states.
Emotional Problems Signs
Great changes in weight, the variations in ways of managing anger or frustration, dizziness, inactivity, lack of energy, memory issues and loss of interest in social activities are some of the signs of emotional problems.
There can be various types of emotional disorders such as -
- Anxiety disorders- characterised by the anxiety with respect to the day to day life situations.

- Postpartum depression- It is a disorder in which the female experience feeling of depression, anxiety, sadness, low mood after delivering the baby may be because of the feeling that she won’t be able to handle and take care of child effectively.
Emotional signs and symptoms can cause several problems to the concerned person as well as to the family members in the form of financial difficulties, relationship problems, problems at the workplace and at home with parents and children and schools in case of children. The concerned person may feel aggressive, agitated, and anhedonia (the inability to experience any sort of pleasure), guilty, fear as negative symptoms. On the other hand, the positive emotional states may include the excess euphoria, elatedness, excessive psychomotor activity, and feeling of grandiosity and ecstasy.

My girlfriend and I had sex on 27th July, which was with protection. However, we did anal sex and go for a bath. Now on 6th Aug, she expected to have a period and even she felt little pain. She also expected usual flow on that day. But when she woke up she observed very little flow almost negligible according to her. She explained this case with me and we both are afraid if there is any case of pregnancy. She even did not observe the abdominal pain that she used to. And we decided to wait for today. Can you please guide us what to do? We do not want to have baby, we are unmarried couple just now started our carrier. Will the pregnancy test kit work during this time and give correct result?

Psychology has played a very prominent role in counselling. Other than handling emotional difficulties, counselling follows a more holistic approach in dealing with various issues. Psychology is an integrated part of the field like career counselling where more emphasis is given upon the understanding thoughts and feelings of others. The roles like performing personality assessments require the knowledge of psychology where a person should have a detailed knowledge of different theoretical perspectives of personality and other underlying principles.
Hence, to work as a counsellor, you should have a professional educational qualification in psychiatry, psychology, or social work. The career counsellors have to be very effective in dealing with people; therefore they should be having good communication skills and should be able to establish rapport with the clients. They should be having the good connection with the education institutions such as schools, colleges, etc. The practitioners should be able to handle associations of large or small groups.

Therefore, career counselling is not just a matter of good communication but a lot more than that. It involves a variety of skills and knowledge to deal with people’s problems. Also, knowledge of psychology is very much essential for being a career counsellor. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
