Seeing A Therapist May Benefit You

We all experience time of stress, sadness, grief and conflict, yet those in distress may be suffering needlessly and make the problem worse by avoiding professional help. “The earlier someone gets help, the easier it is to get through the problem,” says psychologist Daniel J. Reidenberg.

As it can be hard to know if it’s time to see a professional and studies have shown that those who would benefit from some therapeutic intervention are not seeking it enough.

Therapy is often avoided because of the stigma of attached to it and the assumption of weakness. Weakness is far from the truth, in fact engaging in therapy is a sign of strength in character, a willingness to have support and motivation to better wellbeing.
