The condition is overlooked because people assume that they are shy or do not have the needed social skills to interact with others.

While some people go to counselling or therapy for months or even years, you don't always have to make a long-term commitment to get the help you need. Some counsellors and therapists offer time-limited counselling. How does this kind of therapy work and what are its benefits? What Is Time-Limited Counselling?

Do you feel low? Do you struggle to complete daily activities such as having a shower or eating regular meals? Do you have trouble sleeping?
