Seeking out therapy is an individual choice. There are many reasons why people come to therapy. Sometimes it is to deal with long-standing issues. Other times it is in response to unexpected changes in one's life such as a divorce or work transition. Many seek therapy as they pursue their own personal exploration and growth. Working with a therapist can help provide insight, support, and new strategies for all types of life challenges. Therapy can help address many types of issues including depression, anxiety, conflict, grief, stress management, body-image issues, and general life transitions. Therapy is right for anyone who is interested in getting the most out of their life, creating greater self-awareness, and working towards change in their lives.
Can Counseling Help Me?
Many scientific studies have shown that counseling can be effective in working with a variety of problems. However, a commitment is necessary for change to be seen. You can talk with your counselor what is expected of this commitment in terms of time, effort, and goal-setting.
Is going to counseling a sign of weakness?
Far from being a sign of weakness, attending counseling is a sign of willingness to understand and surmount any challenges present in your life. It takes courage to explore sensitive feelings and difficult experiences. The alternative -- doing nothing about these challenges -- is a far less courageous act.
