Why do people choose to do therapy?
Seeking out therapy is an individual choice. A few reasons to choose therapy are:
To deal with long-standing issues or behavior patterns that are getting in the way of living the life you want.
To address or respond to a specific problem, crisis, change or transition.
To pursue personal exploration and growth.
To discuss an issue confidentially.
To gain perspective on a situation.
To get understanding, insight and support for a difficulty you are dealing with.
To address couple or family issues.
Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may successfully navigate through many of life’s difficulties, there are times you feel stuck. You might see yourself repeating unproductive patterns or overwhelmed by a situation, transition or problem. During these challenges, therapy can be very helpful. In fact, the first step to changing something is to recognize when outside help would be useful, and to have the courage to take the steps to get that assistance.
