Emotional Problems - Signs, Symptoms And Causes!

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.

Emotional Symptoms
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 -

  1. Anxiety disorders- characterised by the anxiety with respect to the day to day life situations.
  2. Bipolar mood disorder- It is characterised by the alternate and recurrent episodes of depression and mania.
  3. Dysthymic Disorder- It is characterised by the mild form of depressive state where a person experiences persistent sadness, feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, worthlessness etc.
  4. 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. Emotional problems can cause the abnormal behaviour patterns where there can be an increase in accidents, poor ability to judge things, causing harm to oneself and other family members, suicide etc.

Those people, who face emotional problems, usually do not prefer to go to a mental health professional due to being in a denial state or they may not be aware of the treatment availability. One should note that certain emotional symptoms may occur due to the side effects of medications and other health issues a person is facing. For example, the patients suffering from dementia, cancer, HIV/AIDS life chronic illnesses usually face the emotional problems as additional psychological distress.

Career Counselling And Role Of Psychology!

Career counselling can be defined as a process that helps an individual to gain an understanding of oneself and the various interests to make a firm decision about the career choice and further education plans. It helps in managing a variety of problems such as managing time, help in increasing the concentration levels, resolving various conflicts between parents and children in a family regarding what profession should a child choose.

Career counselling is required by everyone at one point in time as it helps in gaining an insight and hence illuminates us regarding our career opportunities and various improvements that a person can make. There are different roles performed by the career counsellors which are mentioned below:

  1. They help in making the correct assessment of aptitude, personality, interests and other aspects of an individual.
  2. It helps an individual to gain access to the resources and knowledge that are possessed by career expert.
  3. It helps in gaining confidence to cross the hurdles in one’s life and give a right direction with respect to different aspects of one’s life be it maintaining social relationships, personal life or any other career problem.
  4. It helps in modifying the abnormal behavioural patterns, especially in case of children. These behavioural patterns may involve the procrastination, ignorance of one’s mental and emotional health, low self-esteem etc. A career counsellor helps in correcting these behavioural patterns and makes a person indulge in more productive activities at any place.
  5. It helps in connecting students to the professionals having extensive experiences in life to share.

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. They should be willing to take initiatives and work as a team. They should be flexible while dealing with different people and working on various aspects. They should have a good adaptability with respect to changes that take place in the environment.

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!

Behavioural Problems - What Causes Them?

Behavioural disorders are a type of psychological disorder in which abnormal patterns of behaviour are observed in an individual for a long period of time, at least for 6 months. Behavioural Disorders are very problematic and parents usually take their children for mental health assessments due to the problematic behaviour in external settings. These problems can also occur in adults. When the behavioural problem is not treated in childhood at the appropriate time, then these can cause hindrance in the other aspects of an individual’s life such as the career, and maintenance of the interpersonal relationship.
