How therapy could help you
Therapy is a process which helps people dealing with psychological issues, such as depression or anxiety.
While it is common sometimes to feel down, blue, worried occasionally these feelings escalate. When our emotions, our behaviours cause a disproportionate amount of trouble, and when they last and last without variation, when we repeatedly act destructively, think in a rut which is damaging to ourselves and those around us, that’s the time to think about therapy to benefit you in your life.
People come into therapy with a range of problems and, as humans, we have all sorts of problems from time to time and at these times we can need support, extra input from someone else.
When that someone else is a therapist they won’t have a vested interest in you thinking one way or the other about things, their way but will be a neutral confidante who is on your side supporting you in understanding and, if you wish, change.
It can help to overcome specific problems, such as an eating disorder or a phobia; it can create new ways of looking at difficult problems, and help you move towards change, solutions. You can gain better understanding of yourself, goals, values, and can develop skills for improving relationships.
If you're worrying, suffering mentally, talking therapy / counselling can help with those difficult times in life when you need to resolve a problem that is stopping you.
