Thinking about therapy and not sure what to expect
The decision once taken to enter therapy is a big step in the process of beginning to take care of yourself. Therapy can have multiple purposes, to improve your mental health, address problematic self-beliefs, behaviours and feelings or perhaps to help you maintain or possibly create new healthy meaningful relationships.
If your completely new to therapy reaching out to someone who is likely completely unknown can feel very scary and perhaps the whole process is a bit of a mystery.
Contrary to what many may believe people seek counselling or therapy for very many reasons and while these may include conditions like depression, stress or say anxiety, many also seek help for personal and or career development, help with low self esteem , relationships or help in deciding which route to take at a critical juncture in their life and only a very small percentage may suffer from a serious mental illness.
