How Therapy Can Help
It can help you feel less alone: Sometimes talking to someone who doesn't know you personally can create a great sense of relief. The therapist can provide understanding, advice, guidance, and empathy. The sense of support, care, and connection can ease feelings of loneliness and alienation.
Therapy can help you move out of the past: Talking about the past can be difficult, but in doing so, clients are sometimes able to break free from painful memories, take the power away from the past, and start the process of moving forward.
Therapy can change the way you think: The latest research is showing that childhood trauma affects the way the brain develops. Psychotherapy is more than just talking- the process of making emotional and cognitive connections changes the way the brain functions. Studies have shown that for those conditions requiring medication, it is the combination of medication and psychotherapy that provides the best potential for relief and recovery.
