“You need psychological therapy.” How often has someone said this to you, or rather, how often have you looked into the mirror and said this yourself! While most of us may think it is a joke, a lot of people require therapeutic help. A place to let go, blow some steam of and realise that you are a completely normal person with issues in your complex mind that a psychology therapy session or ten can totally fix.
You may think that, you’ve done this before, you’ve gotten through it. You convince yourself you’re just tired or it’s been a bad day. But at some point you need to realise, that hey, maybe I need Psychology therapy? It’s time to visit someone who has a clear understanding of the human mind to tell me if I am overreacting or do I really need some help? Is this chronic depression or do I have reason to be sad? It takes a while to come to terms with the fact that you probably need some therapeutic help. Someone to hold your hand and walk you through the problems you cannot seem to understand.
Depression. Do you have it? Do you not? Do you need depression therapy and a session with a couple of wizened shrinks? It doesn’t really matter does it? At the end of the day, if you are in a situation mentally, that you would rather not be in; and this mental situation has become a permanent sort of melancholic feeling where you listlessly go about your daily life; then go ahead, visit a therapist. What’s the worst that could happen in this situation, you realise you’re not depressed? That’s definitely a good sign.
Psychological therapy is basically a way to understand the messages your mind is trying to send you. It is all about giving your brain the help it needs. Sometimes these problems such as anxiety, nervousness, insecurities, low self-esteem issues can bring a perfectly good person down and hinder their growth. These setbacks act as road blocks to success and are totally not necessary. In a situation like this it is very helpful to visit a psychologist for a good session in psychological therapy.
Psychology therapy is about identifying the basic problem. Are your problems work related, family oriented, spouse related or just about you. A lot of people start their psychological therapy journey with Individual therapy. Feeling trapped as though you are bursting at the seams is a feeling nobody enjoys. A lot of people going through transitory phases in their life get affected the worst. Some can handle the change but majority of the people are quite resistant to this change.
Depression therapy helps you identify problems in a controlled environment in the presence of a trained professional. This trained professional is equipped with all the right kind of knowledge to get you out of your current, unhappy state of mind. The entire purpose of visiting the therapist is to identify the issues.
Once the issues are identified through your psychological therapy journey, the psychologist will then help you move forward, identifying those lifestyle pattern changes that suit your personality but at the same time help you move ahead in life leaving your thoughts and unpleasant inhibitions behind. So relax, take a breath and allow yourself to let go. The progress of your psychology therapy is directly proportional to the amount of effort you put in towards your self and the ultimate goal of getting better.
Take your counsellor seriously, use your own wise discretion as well and work cohesively to get to a better place in your mind.
