My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
Therapy helps you evaluate your current strengths and weaknesses, and set realistic personal, professional and relationship goals. Therapy teaches you to evaluate your past so that you can recognize and move beyond limiting self-beliefs you may have picked up along the way. By making you aware of your personal "blind spots," therapy encourages you to be your most authentic self. Your therapist is both a compassionate sounding board, and skillful motivator, allowing you to regularly "check in" on your various life goals.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Therapy is much like working with a personal trainer. A trainer assesses your current fitness, helps you set goals, and then provides you with a clear plan of action for meeting those goals. However, a trainer can't do the work for you. The benefits you get from working with a therapist are largely based upon your willingness to be open-minded, and your determination to meet challenges head-on. You know you are ready to try therapy when you feel like you keep hitting a "brick wall" in certain areas of your life. Maybe your old strategies just aren't working like they used to, or maybe your life has taken an unexpected turn and presented you with new and overwhelming challenges. A therapist provides an expert viewpoint--but unlike your family and friends, your therapist has no personal agenda when it comes to your life circumstances. The best way to get a feel for therapy is to simply meet with a therapist. You should get a pretty good idea in that first session if you "click" with that individual, which is essential to the process. At the very least, an initial meeting with a therapist should help you better understand the scope of your current issues. If you are not yet ready for therapy, you will still have this initial feedback in mind, should you be interested in treatment in the future. A good therapist will not pressure you to commit to long-term therapy in an initial meeting, as he/she understands that the timing has to be right for you to make the most of the process.
