Waiting for a sign to go to therapy? This is it!

Updated: Nov 11, 2023

Are you thinking about joining the self-care club and going to therapy? A little iffy on if it's going to be right for you? Then continue on to read and see the ways you can benefit from talking to a professional about the everyday things you're facing.


Therapy is a very personal choice. Talking to someone can be vulnerable and yes, that's normal that it's intimidating.


Know though that in the end, the ultimate goal of therapy is to help individuals live better more productive lives. So in the end it can really help out anyone seeking it.


Here are some quick reasons to prompt you to go:


  • Are you facing life challenges that you want to seek help from a third-party professional?

  • Do you want coping skills to help you?

  • Are you in need of someone to talk to? A trusted ally


These are all valid reasons that can help get you going.


Let's dive in a bit deeper...


The stats:


According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI), 1 of every 5 American adults live with a mental illness. (Aha! Proof we're not alone) while even more than that experience a mental condition every year BUT only 40% of those seek help.


When stress or conditions go untreated, they can get worse and lead to deeper even scarier health conditions. Talking to a professional can help alleviate and sort through those stresses.


You need more in your support system


Let's face it, as we get older it's hard to find just the right people who can support us in the way we need. Especially as we're going through a lot or even a serious medical condition. A therapist can help fill that. It feels good as any human being to feel validated and seen and heard. A therapist that's a right fit for you will offer you that.


They also are a third party unbiased person who can help you through certain situations that arise. Feel like you can't turn to anyone about your work problems? Turn to a therapist whose privacy of yours they'll respect.



Overall benefits to going to therapy


I've received so many benefits to going to therapy over the last 6-7 years now. My therapist has given me so many coping skills to help me better my relationships with others and taught me how to put myself first in an assertive way (after being brought up very passive).

We have waded together through some very tough trauma and I've come out being such a stronger person now these days with boundaries galore. It's an everyday work in progress, but it's improved so much.


It's truly helped me succeed, in my own way, in areas of life that are important to me.


I trust it can do the same for you.
