“Will therapy help me?”
“Of course therapy will help you!!” is the first thing I want to say, but I refrain.
I am obviously biased. I wouldn’t be a therapist if I knew it wasn’t helpful.
I might say however,
“What is the problem?”
“What are your goals?”
“What do you hope to gain from therapy?”
That information can help us determine how therapy can be beneficial for you. Or, maybe we will discover that you are looking for a detective, or a psychic, and in that case, I am not the one to come to.
The truth is therapy is hard work, but as your therapist, it is my job is to help you along the way.
Unfortunately I can’t “fix” you or give you the answers or tell you what to do. What I can do is help you to solve your problem and provide you with the tools that you need to become successful in accomplishing your goals.
“But don’t crazy people go to therapy?”
“If I come to you does that mean I’m crazy?”
Well, if we work together, you’ll have a better understanding of why you are the way you are. Plus, therapy will help you to be more equipped to change the things that you want to change about yourself and learn to love the rest.
Oh – and by the time we’re done ( likely much sooner) you will no longer feel crazy!
Did I answer your question? “Will therapy help me?” If you’re reading this post there probably is something you want to change and therapy can very well help you in that process.
Good Luck and I look forward to hearing from you.
