How do people know they need to go to therapy?

There are a lot of reasons people decide to go to therapy. Everyone’s life path is unique, and therapy is a great way to get professional help through life’s difficult moments.

Here are a few reasons people seek out therapy:

During Crisis
People often seek counseling for a prominent problem like an eating disorder, significant depression or anxiety, or an addiction. Your crisis could also be related to your work or your home life. It's important to know that many people find themselves in crises and that you are not alone. It is never too late to get professional help when you are in the midst of a crisis. Therapy can help you identify goals to get you through your crisis.

Find Support
Life can be stressful and overwhelming. If you are struggling with negative self-talk or feel a lack of support in your daily life, going to therapy could bring the support you need to feel stable again in life. At The Purpose Center, we focus on bringing purpose back into your life by treating you as a whole person- mind, body, and spirit. We bring you the support necessary to decrease stress, enhance relationships, and help you find greater health and well-being.

Transition Point
Your life can change in so many ways during your lifetime. Transition points challenge your normal routines and ingrained habits. They can be especially difficult if they were not planned or if you are handling your transitions alone. Going to therapy allows a professional to help you identify goals to get you through your transition, and to develop and utilize coping skills when making and dealing with hard decisions or establishing a new routine.

Feel Empowered
Therapy can be an empowering experience. In therapy, you’re able to work on boundary setting, assertiveness, and communication. These skills allow people to feel more in control and happier overall in their life and in their own bodies. Therapy is all about helping you reach the next, better stage of your life. At The Purpose Center, we help people realize their full potential and feel proud of their accomplishments in life no matter how big or how small.

Feeling Confused
Maybe life has felt “off” and you’re not sure what to do. Maybe you’re not sure if you want to stay in your relationship or if you want to stay at your job. Therapy allows you to work through these confusing life moments without fear of judgment. Maybe you recognize patterns that you want to change in your life, but you can’t figure out how to put the change into action. Therapists are here to work alongside you as you work through difficult decisions.

Therapy is a great way to gain control over your life and take the steps necessary to make healthy, positive, long-lasting changes.
