Question: How do you know if you need to see a professional therapist?
Simple question with a not-so-simple answer. The first myth we need to remove is that people who hire a therapist are “crazy” or “damaged”. It’s true mental health professionals can often be of service when someone is suffering from a serious psychiatric disorder. However, most therapy clients are normal folks who need help meeting a specific life goal.
Another myth about therapy, largely propagated by television and movies, is that a therapy session involves someone picking their way through the dark recesses of your mind. In fact, a skilled therapist will make the session feel much more like a pleasant conversation than an interrogation.
Why Do People Enter Therapy?
As mentioned earlier, people seek therapy for a wide variety of issues. Some examples are…
- Feeling sad, especially if the emotion is not associated with a specific life event
- Constantly feeling jumpy, being unable to sit still, or unable to “turn off” worries
- Nervousness about upcoming significant life changes (moving, marriage, divorce, empty nest, etc.)
- Help dealing with the loss of a loved one
- Help to quit drinking or using drugs
- Dealing with problems associated with a loved one who is addicted to drugs, alcohol, pornography, sex, food or technology
- Trouble communicating with a spouse or other family member
- Being the victim of physical or sexual abuse
- A general “isn’t there more to life than this” feeling
