Procrastination can often be a problem when it comes to doing things we know that we need to but find it hard to get started or to finish.

We all experience procrastination from time to time though when it becomes a pattern, stops you doing what you need to, or impacts your productivity, well-being, and causes unnecessary stress and anxiety, it can be time to seek help.

There can be a number of reasons that people experience procrastination – whether it is part of a pattern of behaviour, lack of inspiration or feelings of overwhelm, however it has become a modern problem that can impact day to day life, as well as our wellbeing. 

At Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling, our team of psychologists, counsellors and therapists offer specialised counselling and therapy (including CBT) tailored to help you overcome procrastination, and regain control of your life.

Common Signs of Procrastination

Procrastination can occur on a spectrum and ranges from not feeling as though motivated to actively avoiding being able to engage in tasks even though we know they are important, or even vital, to our future.

Although procrastination varies in each individual, some of the most common signs include:

  • Putting off important tasks until the last minute (if doing them at all)
  • Feeling overwhelmed or anxious about starting tasks
  • Frequently engaging in distractions to avoid starting work
  • Having difficulty prioritising tasks and managing time effectively
  • Engaging in distracting activities instead of focusing on responsibilities
  • Feeling guilty or ashamed about procrastinating
  • Experiencing a cycle of procrastination despite negative consequences.

At Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling, our team of Psychologists, Counsellors and CBT Therapists in Newcastle offer a range of approaches to help you break out of procrastination patterns and develop ways to take control of your time.
