Happy Holidays! Holidays are often the time for gift-giving. While it’s easy to shop for others, it can be difficult to remember to take care of ourselves. Today, I want to share with you the benefits of therapy. Give yourself the gift of therapy this holiday season to incorporate it into your life now and into the new year.
Benefit One: Therapy allows you to see things through another pair of eyes.
If there are issues that arise or things you have been carrying with you for a while, it’s easy to keep replaying scenarios in your head. You may find yourself feeling “stuck” or unable to move past a certain obstacle in your path. Whatever it is you’re feeling, talking with a therapist allows you to see things through a non-biased, caring, empathetic, and professional pair of eyes. Therapy can help you to press the “reset” button on the things that are bringing you stress or uncertainty.
Benefit Two: Therapy is focused on current day-to-day happenings.
Therapy can often be misconstrued as being a long, drawn-out process. You may have had a bad experience in the past with therapy or maybe you find yourself dwelling on problems that are long gone. Therapy at Iris Therapy Services is focused on day-to-day life issues you are dealing with in the present.
Benefit Three: Therapy gives you expert guidance.
With over 10 years of experience, I understand the need for support and encouragement during many phases in life. I help people move forward and listen as they share what is on their mind or what is holding them back. Finding a therapist that you can connect with and trust is fundamental in the success of therapy. It is often the relationship with the therapist that is one of the most important aspects of our work together.
Benefit Four: Therapy builds your inner strength.
Taking part in the therapy process helps you pinpoint issues that are holding you back from living a life that is enjoyable or where you feel that you can tackle issues. Building your inner strength allows you to grow as a person, make decisions more mindfully and proactively, and find the ability to gain confidence as you approach challenges.
Benefit Five: Therapy is a safe place away.
There may be days where you just need to talk. You might be dealing with a life change, such as a move. Maybe your child is having behavioral issues that are causing you stress. Perhaps you are having relationship issues you want to work through with a professional. My space is a safe place. As your therapist, I will listen. I will be present to let you share your story, explore with you, and help you to develop coping skills to help you gain the life you’ve always wanted and deserve.
