Hey there! This is a question that most of us ask ourselves and I am here to tell you there is not 1 solid answer to determine if you need therapy or not. Here are my thoughts on the question: It’s a little different for everyone. Some signs that you might need some help from a professional are when the way you feel begins to negatively impact your sleep, your job, appetite, relationships with friends and loved ones, or your decision-making abilities. If you find that you feel “down” a lot, or that things just aren’t getting better or even that things seem hopeless – these are also strong indicators that it’s time to seek out a trained professional to help. I also say I think everyone would benefit from having a therapist in their life!
It’s important you feel comfortable with myself as your therapist in telling me everything that is bothering you. What is discussed between us, stays between us. The only instances where I must break confidentiality is if you are at risk of causing harm to yourself or others, and in situations of child, elder , or dependent abuse.
Going into an office for therapy can be pretty intimidating if you don’t know what to expect so let me give you some comfort about the situation. Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. In general, you can expect to discuss the current events happening in your life, your personal history relevant to your issue, and report progress (or any new insights gained) from the previous therapy session. Depending on your specific needs, therapy can be short-term, for a specific issue, or longer-term, to deal with more difficult patterns or your desire for more personal development.
It is important to understand that you will get more results from therapy if you actively participate in the process. The ultimate purpose of therapy is to help you bring what you learn in session back into your life. People seeking psychotherapy are ready to make positive changes in their lives, are open to new perspectives and take responsibility for their lives.
