Is Therapy Right For Me?
If you’re wanting to reverse any negative patterns in your life and create life-long change from the inside-out, psychotherapy is a powerful process to help you get there.
I’ll be honest, I am 100% biased that psychotherapy is universally beneficial for every human being on this planet. Not because it is my business and livelihood, but because I have personally benefitted from it and live out the powerful benefits daily. The work of therapy is at the core of every one of us. It’s healing, redemptive, compassionate and integrative. We can make sense of gaps in our story, process missed opportunities and receive what we needed at vulnerable moments in our life.
At it’s core, psychotherapy is the process of knowing oneself more fully. It creates depth within our soul and helps us choose who we want to be and what we want out of our life and relationships.
We are all impacted by life experiences from our early development and family relationships that have left us with deeply rooted beliefs about ourselves and others that without insight and curiosity, can continue to inform the course of our life. This isn’t to say that everything is your mom or dad’s fault… It’s not that simple. However, it is an opportunity to explore how your unique personality, experiences and impactful relationships have shaped you into the person you are today.
Despite any negative connotations, there is no shame or harm in seeing a psychotherapist, and is a proven way to enhance your cognitive function, emotional control and life purpose. Pursuing psychotherapy is a brave and courageous thing to do. It will enable your ability to re-write any pain or discomfort into an empowering self-motivating script that will enhance the quality of your life and relationships for years and years to come.
Finding a trusted therapist is the most important factor of a positive therapy experience. Experience, education and and professionalism play a big role in the success of psychotherapy, however, the therapeutic rapport with your therapist is the primary. Do your research, try a few out and pay attention to your gut.
You deserve to heal and you deserve to live a life that’s fulfilling. If you’re struggling to believe you deserve it or that it’s possible. Or if you’re exhausted from feeling the same way no matter what you try. Reach out and I’ll help you find a therapist to help. Hiring a professional to walk with you along your life’s journey is one of the most courageous things you can do for yourself.
