Psychotherapy helps people obtain the tools to help themselves through life's challenges. It helps people to see the areas of their lives where they can have control and assume that control. It helps people build themselves and their lives into something healthy.
No-one in life is perfect. We all have issues that we have to deal with and resolve. This is part of being human. The issues do not have to define who you are. People are not their issues. People have issues. Having issues or needing help to resolve issues does not make a persoon weak. Being able to recognize issues, the need to work on and resolve these issues, and the need for help with these issues shows strength and a willingess to see oneself as human. The work to counter this thinking would involve reframing and redefining what therapy means as well as what being human means. Working towards self-love and self-acceptance despite having issues would also come in to play.
I base all of this on the individual. The client ultimately decides when therapy is complete. Therapy takes as long or as short as the client decides and how often I see clients is determined by the individual client.
