Physiotherapy, talking therapy, counseling, whatever you want to call it- therapy is important. It is designed to help people through some of the most trying times of their lives and help them to create a life for themselves that means they can live a happier and more fulfilled- not dragged down by the issues of their past or present struggles.
Going to therapy has been a taboo subject in the past–nobody wanted to talk about it, but possibly needed it. However, having a qualified person who isn’t a friend or close relative can be one of the best things you can do for your physical and mental health.
If you’ve been trying to find reasons to finally start going to a therapist, here are some of them.
It can help you dislodge hidden and forgotten memories
Seeing a therapist is like water bore drilling your psyche. For those who don’t know what water bore drilling is, it is taking a large drill on the surface level in order to be able to investigate what is going on underneath the surface. Without the drill, people can only predict what is hidden beneath, but using the drill enables them to fully investigate.
Like water bore drilling, therapy should only be done by somebody who knows what they’re doing. The human mind can be complex, and it has brilliant ways of hiding some of the traumatic things in our life that we can often forget about, but influence our behaviors in many different ways. Seeing a therapist and having them ask you the right questions will help you to discover some of these traumas, as well as giving you the tools to help to deal with them.
They can help you to deal with daily struggles
Lots of things in life can be put down to being ‘a symptom of the times’. And while it is most uncommon for anybody to feel perky all of the time, there are emotions and struggles that can play a part in interfering with your day-to-day life. Examples of these are; feeling overwhelmed, fatigued no matter how much sleep you got, struggling with insomnia, rage, anger, or resentment towards others for no good reason, apathy, and social withdrawal.
Going to therapy can help you to understand the reasons why you are feeling such a way and to help you to manage your emotions in a healthier way.
Therapy can help to heal relationships
Whether you’re single, married, or in a long-term, or complicated relationship, getting therapy can help you to address some of the difficulties you may have in relating to others. Most commonly, difficulty trusting or feeling secure in relationships is one of the reasons they come to an end. If you have a track record of this, it may be time to see a therapist to help you to prevent this from ruining your future relationships with others.
It doesn’t only have to be romantic relationships either–if you have some challenging relationships with family members or have problems making friends, it is time for you to attend some therapy sessions so you get the socialization and relationships that you crave.
