Therapy is the most undervalued profession available to us, and bettering our mental health and happiness.
With the past stigma around talking about going to therapy in public, everyday people (just like you) have put seeing a therapist as a weakness, not the aid it truly is.
I am going to share with you why everyone should go to therapy.
Why Everyone Should Go To Therapy
1. Therapy makes you happier
When you go to therapy regularly, you will find that the worries in your life start to wash away. Stress becomes less overbearing, anxieties and depression show up less frequently, and from this, you feel more joy and happiness.
2. Therapy eases anxiety and depression
When you think of therapy, you most likely connect it with helping you through mentally hard times, and this thought is correct. Seeing a therapist is a core aid in working through anxiety and depression.
3. Therapy helps you grow as a human
Talking weekly or monthly with your therapist for years, they see you go through highs and lows. They also can speak to you about things ranging from big dreams to desires deep down in the person you would like to grow into one day.
As the connection grows between you two, your ability to work on areas you might never have thought possible will one day become the complete focus of sessions.
4. Therapy helps you feel not so alone
Fighting mental health lows is a very lonely situation. As you have noticed, this battle happens inside your brain, heart, and chest most of the time. And even if you seek out help from family or close friends, they may not be able to 100% relate to or understand your pain.
Having consistent therapy sessions gives you a set time each week or month when you know that you’ll be understood and have someone you can open up to fully.
Therapy sessions can be a huge source of human connection in times like these.
Everything you say at therapy will stay safe between you and your therapist. We all have secrets deep down that we are ashamed of society finding out.
It is not easy to voice those secrets and let them out during your therapy session, but it will get easier over time. And you will most likely start seeing them as parts of you that you don’t need to fear or be ashamed of.
The only time a therapist will tell anyone anything you said is to the authorities if you talk about harming others or yourself.
6. Therapy can help you gain more income
As you work through the situations above, you will find that your mind is much clearer. Stress, anxiety, depression, sadness, and many other feelings don’t affect your thoughts as much. The clarity will allow you to use that energy to focus on areas of growth and betterment.
One of those areas can be your work, business, or entrepreneurial ventures. With your newly found confidence in overcoming the struggles over the past months to years of sessions with your therapist, you will find that anything is possible when you put your mind to it.
We all should go to therapy because speaking to a professional on a regular basis will help navigate the constant struggles that occur in life.
Yes, therapy is helpful for everyone. The longer you stay in therapy the more helpful it gets.
The number one reason people go to therapy is to work their way out of a hard mental health situation in life.
