Why We Need Therapy
Have you ever felt like you do not have anyone to talk to? Have you ever been confused as to why you may be feeling a certain emotion? It is important to acknowledge what you feel on a day-to-day basis along with why you are feeling it, and how to cope with these feelings. Therapy can help you with all these things and more.
A list of things therapy can assist with includes addiction, anxiety and stress, confidence and self-esteem, support, depression, grief and loss, illnesses, phobias, relationship issues, sleep issues, trauma and PTSD, and transitions and goals. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need an ironclad reason to receive therapy. As you can see therapy caters to a wide range of experiences from setting life goals to helping you sleep better.
There are some limitations to therapy. The cost may be unsuitable for people, and recalling past and/or traumatic events can be overwhelming, especially when you are opening up to a stranger. Therapy is a gradual process, and working on yourself can be a challenge. Furthermore, if one feels they have been forced into therapy, it will be more challenging for them to put in the effort to bring about change.
Nevertheless, if you are ready to invest in bettering your mental health and gradually working on yourself and the issues prevalent in your life, therapy can have long lasting, positive and life changing outcomes.
Not only will you learn more about yourself, therapy can help you achieve your goals. Adding onto this, you are more likely to have better health and more satisfying relationships. There can be an enhancement in all the aspects of your life, from your personal boundaries and expectations to the way you treat those around you, especially those important to you.
