Happy Friday everyone! Today we thought we would explain 5 reasons why you should see a therapist
1. Friends and Family can’t be your only outlet
Friends and family are great sources of support however sometimes they can be a little quick to want to “fix” your problems rather than to listen. Friends and family can also be judgemental, even if it’s not intentional!
2. Self care
Just as you take care of your physical health, it’s equally important to take care of your mental health. Prioritising mental health promoted healthy self-care practices.
3. Realise alternative perspectives
When you experience difficult situations in your life, it’s often hard to see alternative solutions. Therapy can widen your perspective and provide distance between you and your problem, helping to approach and eventually overcome the stressor impacting your wellbeing.
4. Finding meaning
It’s natural to want to understand the reason difficult things happen to you. Therapy is a process that can help you discover the lesson or silver lining your problem has presented to you.
5. Discover new coping strategies
Therapy can help you discover new coping strategies to manage current and future problems. Learning and implementing new coping strategies gives you confidence to believe you are in control of managing your problems.
