How can psychotherapy help? When our problems of daily living, relationships, working life & unexpected events overwhelm or undermine one's ability to move forward it may be time to talk with a trained and skilled professional.
Here are three different ways that therapy is helpful.................
I. Psychotherapy can be helpful because each person may need someone who is able to be objective, supportive, encouraging as well as challenging of us to experience our problems and solutions in a new and constructive manner.
2. Developing a trusting relationship with a therapist can help an individual define or refine one's needs (emotional, physical and environmental), learn constructive ways of asserting oneself as well as establishing boundaries. Life can be both complex or rewarding based on one's adult demands &responsibilities.
3. Having an advocate, consultant or trained listener provides a space to examine issues related to intimacy, sexuality, parenting/co-parenting, friendship, extended family relationships, mood either depression or anxiety related feelings, addiction or one's past history, only to mention some of the major areas of concerns that individuals may need help with.
