While you may have successfully navigated the difficulties you have endured, there is nothing wrong with seeking out additional support. In fact, those seeking therapy demonstrate courage and self-awareness to recognize they may be in need of additional support, and that is something to be admired. This means taking responsibility by accepting where you are in life and making a commitment to change and/or heal by seeking therapy. Therapy can provide long-lasting benefits and support, providing you with the tools necessary to assist with managing triggers, re-shaping damaging patterns, and overcoming life challenges.
Participating in therapy allows for an individual to receive support in current life stressors or past experiences of distress and/or trauma. Therapy may also include benefits such as learning or enhancing coping and problem solving skills, resolution of presenting problems, as well as improved intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships. The therapeutic process may assist with reducing distress, enhancing stress management, and increasing one’s ability to cope with problems related to work, family, relationship or other life stressors. Participating in therapy may lead to greater understanding of personal and relational goals and values which may increase relational harmony and lead to greater happiness.
