Everyone has a different reason for wanting to see a therapist. But if you’re thinking ‘therapy isn’t for me’, you might want to think again, no issue is too small or too big to benefit from therapy.
1. You can’t vent solely to friends and family. You’ll soon find yourself alienated and ostracised. Your friends are your friends, not unpaid shrinks. Plus their solutions will more than likely be what worked for them, not you.
2. Mental health care is just as important as physical health care. You’d go to the doctor if your leg was hurting, why not see someone if your feelings are hurting?
3. Resilience can only strengthen if we learn new coping strategies.
