How to Tell if Therapy is Right for You
Here are some ways you can tell if therapy is right for you:
It’s common to feel anxious from time to time, but if you’ve noticed your anxiety levels have increased and are interfering with your ability to do normal activities like work, household chores, and sleep, it may benefit you to talk to a mental health professional.
Trauma or Abuse
Trauma and abuse can leave a lasting impact and if left untreated, can begin to permeate many aspects of your life. This includes your relationships to your ability to experience joy and happiness. Coming to terms with your experience by speaking with an empathic and specially-trained therapist can help you to heal.
Recognizing you are struggling with addiction to substances is often shame-inducing. It can be hard to seek help. If you have a friend or family member who is experiencing addiction, it may also be helpful to reach out for support.
If you find yourself unable to communicate with your partner and are wondering if separation is the only answer, seeking individual or couples counseling could help get the relationship back on track.
Difficult Life Transitions
Difficulties such as the loss of a job, a divorce, or loss of a loved one can make a once-peaceful life seem chaotic and stressful. Speaking with a therapist can be an effective way to work through your emotions and grief.
Although it can feel overwhelming to take that first step and reach out to a therapist, deepening your understanding of yourself and learning to practice radical self love is an investment in yourself that can improve your quality of life.
