Why do people go to therapy? How do I know if it is right for me?
People have many different reasons for seeking therapy. Some may be going through a major life transition like unemployment, divorce, or a new job. Perhaps they are not handling stressful circumstances well. Some people need help managing issues like low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship problems, spiritual conflicts, or even creative blocks. Therapy can provide some much needed encouragement and skills to get us through these periods. Some people may simply be at a point where they are ready to learn more about themselves or want to be more effective with their goals in life. Most importantly, people seeking psychotherapy are ready to make changes in their lives.
