the benefits of therapy: how therapy helps
You've been wondering about seeing a therapist, but you're not sure if it's worth it or you need it. Therapy may seem unnecessary, selfish, or frivolous to you.
However, the great news is that everybody can benefit from therapy, no matter your history, your future goals, or your current circumstance.
Therapy involves inquiry into your own unique heart, body, mind, and soul to help you find a deeper understanding of yourself, develop self-compassion, and create more freedom and choice in your life.
Psychotherapy is not just for people with severe mental health issues. You also don’t need to have had a traumatic childhood, battle with addiction, experienced failed relationships, or had unsuccessful school or job experiences. Perhaps you don’t even identify with “depression” or “anxiety,” although the majority of women are quite familiar with one or both at some point in their lives.
Though many women seek therapy solely for the reasons mentioned above, therapy is beneficial for anyone looking to deepen their connection to themselves and to find deeper meaning in life.
It’s a great opportunity to understand yourself, your patterns, your insecurities, and most likely discover something about yourself you did not know before.
Modern society does not exactly value this. However, I can say for certain that deeply knowing yourself not only helps you navigate the inevitable ups and downs of life, it also gives you great advantage and power.
So why would you need to see someone to know yourself? Well, the good news is you can do inner reflection on your own. But in the therapeutic relationship, you are given an opportunity to heal relational wounds and learn valuable skills. The benefit of seeing a licensed therapist weekly further enhances the normal human desire to evolve and grow.
In our fast paced, multi-tasking, competitive world, it can become nearly impossible to create time to reflect and connect to ourselves. Perhaps you’ve forgotten why that’s important at all.
As a woman, this is your true nature. This is where your power lies. This is where all your creation stems from. The more deeply and consciously you can connect with yourself, the more connected you will feel with all that matters to you. As a result, your relationships, your work, and your creativity will transform for the better.
