THE NUMBERS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
HOW THERAPY CAN HELP?
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a new set of challenges for all of us. More and more of us are experiencing an increase in stress, anxiety, depression, drinking, drug use, problems at home with family, an increase in irritability, more fighting, more physical discomfort, lack of feeling positive, and suicide. If you are struggling with something emotionally, it can be difficult to know how best to help yourself. It is common to have beliefs about therapy, from the television or movies, which may be confusing and off-putting. Reaching out for help does not mean that you are broken or crazy.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THERAPY?
Therapy is a conversation between you and your therapist. In this conversation, you work together on identifying, understanding and solving concerns, learning skills, and recognizing strengths. Your therapist will learn about you, your views, your past experiences, your relationships, and ideas and assumptions about yourself and the world. Each session may be a little different, as you work together on these topics.
Therapy is simply getting help with something that is not working. Most people do not think twice about seeking help for a broken bone, or a heart condition, however many struggle to see a therapist for an emotional condition. Reaching out for help does not mean you are not smart, or are not capable. It means you are seeking the help of a professional, someone who is trained in that specific area, the same as if you were to bring your car in to a mechanic’s shop for an oil change. Therapy is a relationship that you build with your therapist, one of trust, safety, comfort and learning. However, therapy can feel uncomfortable, as you and your therapist explore some of the struggles you are experiencing. That is a normal part of the process, and you should feel comfortable discussing these concerns with your therapist. Therapy can take as long as it needs, as long as YOU need, to reach your own personal goals and feel better.
