Why would anyone need therapy?
Reality is, no man is an island. We all live in relationships with people around us. Some of these relationships are more intimate, some are more casual, some are quick interactions, and some are permanent unions. Regardless of who we are, relationships bring some of the best and some of the worst out of us. A famous psychiatrist, Dr. Irvin Yalom, often wrote about how our woundedness as humans comes from relationships and only in relationships can we find healing. In this healing process, he wrote, “therapist and patient are fellow travelers”.
Some of the problems on your life journey are more acute, such as anxious stress reactions to a difficult job situation or post-partum depression. Some are more chronic; entrenched marital arguments, stubborn parenting problems, mental disorders or even communication problems can become the dark cloud following you everywhere. Seeking out therapy is a wise choice to reduce suffering and increase your quality of life and of those around you.
