How Therapy Helps
The real question shouldn’t be “how does therapy help?” but rather “how do I want therapy to help?”
If you come to therapy with a goal in mind and what you want to see for your future, then your chances of success increase.
Through exploration of our past and what we see for our future, we can make specific plans to make sure we set you up for success. We must have a plan for how we get you to where you want to be, because a goal without a plan is simply a wish.
I don’t want to wish you success, I want to plan for it.
Sometimes we just need to think out loud for us to hear all the chatter that is going on upstairs. Therapy will give you a deeper understanding of yourself if you take the time to explore.
You will undoubtedly learn more about yourself than you thought was possible.
By digging deep and answering hard questions about yourself, you will gain insight and knowledge into why it is we do the things we do.
When we say “I’ll do it tomorrow”, do we really mean?
What about when you say “this is a phase and I will grow out of it”?
Sometimes the questions aren’t questions and they are simply statements like “I can’t do it” or “what’s the point in trying anymore.” Shame will keep you stuck in those places, unable to move forward, and therapy can help you navigate through those moments.
Therapy can help you to start asking the right questions. We need to start counting our victories, no matter how small they seem at the moment.
Stack up enough small wins and you will look back and see one big change!
