How Psychotherapy Can Help
Life is full of learning experiences and some of these learning experiences can be very agonizing. Therapy can empower the individual so that learning may be done in a less painful manner. Therapy can help explore factors contributing to issues in one's life and identify effective goals to resolve problems.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
One of the most significant factors that help people succeed is having support. Support may be found in family, friends, co-workers, or pastoral support, but sometimes we need a confidant outside of our usual circle of support. Having someone that you can discuss your feelings and concerns in a trusting atmosphere can make a powerful impact on one's peace of mind and healing. In addition, the experienced therapist can offer coping strategies that may provide a new perspective on a frustrating situation.
