Making the decision to start therapy isn’t a light one and the stigma surrounding therapy continues to discourage far too many people in getting the support they deserve. Psychotherapy is frequently perceived as something only a person with a mental illness or mental health disorder (such as, depression, anxiety, bipolar etc.) should seek and can be overlooked as an option for anyone needing additional support with life stressors. While therapy can most definitely be valuable when dealing with a mental health condition, it can also be extremely beneficial for anyone needing an additional supportive person to help them work out concerns that arise in their life.
Life can get stressful. Many times we find that our go-to coping methods are no longer working. We find ourselves more and more stressed out in need of long-lasting balance. We might even start noticing how it is effecting many things (or everything!) in our lives.
