Making the decision to see a therapist takes courage - and studies show that it does work!
Issues may come up in our lives that we may be uncomfortable discussing with family or friends. A therapist is an impartial listener that provides a different way to look at the issues going on.
The goal of therapy is to explore thoughts and feelings and worries without judgement. It is also having someone support you through the process to make it more manageable, and less overwhelming.
Some benefits of therapy can include: improving self-esteem, improving communication skills, learning new coping skills to manage distress, and developing fresh insights about your life.
