Psychosis is an umbrella term used to describe a dysfunctional basis of reality. Symptoms of psychosis include hallucinations, manic highs and lows, and delusions of self. When these symptoms affect daily life, it could be time to seek help.

Common Symptoms of Psychosis

• social seclusion
• disorganized speech
• difficulty maintaining hygiene
• frequent delusions
• anxiety
• irregular eating patterns
• irregular thought patterns


Current studies show there could be a genetic predisposition to psychosis. Other factors, such as environmental experiences of early childhood, problems occurring at childbirth, and trauma.


Depending on what a client is struggling with, a therapist can work to lower expectations of self and others, as well as recognizing negative beliefs and thought patterns, and redirecting these to stable, realistic thoughts. Therapy can help redirect negative thought patterns, and help untangle social complications.
