With mental health finally getting the attention and awareness it deserves, you’ve probably heard the topic of therapy mentioned frequently. You may have even been suggested or encouraged to seek a therapist for yourself. But the idea can be scary. And with so many therapists out there, how could you ever narrow your search down to one?
The truth is that choosing someone to open up to is a very big deal. It’s ok if you’re feeling nervous about it.
But try to look at therapy as a privilege. It allows you the opportunity to work through your mental issues and blocks so that you can live your happiest and healthiest life. Many people don’t have access to therapy. So to lessen the hesitation you may have about attending therapy, you should view it as a privilege and a wonderful opportunity to better your life.
One great option is group therapy. As the name suggests, group therapy differs from individual therapy as it’s more of a community effort. It’s a great way to connect with others who are struggling with the same issues you are facing and learn valuable tools for handling your own problems.
