Common Reasons For seeking therapy....
Some of the most common reasons for seeking help from therapy include:
From time to time, everyone experiences emotional pain. But sometimes the distress is particularly severe or long-lasting and interferes with your ability to function in your daily life. If you are experiencing sadness, grief, or anxiety that is persistent, therapy can help relieve the symptoms, address the underlying causes for your distress, and provide you with help in restoring emotional well-being.
Therapy can help you overcome obstacles that have kept you from reaching your goals and becoming the person you want to be. Although you might not have a clinical condition or symptoms, therapy can help you learn more about yourself, as well as others, and how you can live your life with deeper personal satisfaction.
Your distress may be coming from difficulties in your relationship with a spouse, parent, child, co-worker or significant other. Therapy can be valuable in helping you understand the root of the problem and providing you with the understanding and skills you need to improve the relationship.
Sometimes emotional distress or relationship problems are associated with coping mechanisms, such as excessive shyness, weak communication, lack of assertiveness, or poor anger control. Therapy can enable you to acquire or strengthen skills that can benefit many of the most important areas of your life.
Experiencing a break from someone who is important to you (through death or separation)can result in great emotional pain. Therapy can be significantly helpful in coping with the loss.
Trauma, Violence or Abuse
Victims of trauma, violence or abuse can feel so overwhelmed by feelings of fear, anger, or helplessness that their ability to function effectively is significantly impaired. Therapy can help provide a safe, confidential setting in which to discuss your victimization issues with a caring, supportive person and find ways to move forward with your life.
Clinical Disorder or Condition
Those who have certain disorders or conditions can benefit from an overall treatment plan which includes therapy and another form of treatment, such as medication. For instance, research shows that individuals with conditions such as ADHD, eating disorders, major depression or anxiety disorders benefit significantly more from a combination of therapy and medication than just medication alone.
Childhood and Parenting Concerns
Parents who are struggling with behaviors in their children that they are unsure how to handle. Children and teens can benefit from having a neutral person to listen to them and who can assist in facilitating changes within the family. Children can be especially vulnerable during times of stress within the family or within their environment. Frequently they begin having changes in their mood and or behavior. Children may begin having problems at home or school. Counseling can help children learn to identify and express their feelings in productive ways, these valuable tools can last a lifetime.
