What I say to people who feel nervous or have concerns about therapy/assessment
There are times when life feels like its too much to handle or moments when you just don’t recognise yourself anymore. We all feel that from time to time but when those feelings or emotions don’t go away, you might need external help from a professional. Talking to a therapist about your concerns may sometimes be easier than turning to friends and/or family.
There are many ways to describe psychotherapy. Treating different diagnosis and mental illness is part of it but for me it is also about taking care of different crisis situations that we experience and even more importantly, to be able to reach an in- depth understanding of yourself and realise how to move forward. Working on a better awareness of your internal and external relationships, with yourself and others, helps you to find ways to handle challenging situations in your daily life.
