* Please note that therapy should not replace medication, unless on the advice of a GP. If in extreme distress, it would be wise to take more immediate action by calling the emergency services and seeing a medical professional.
I have posed this question because I feel it shows society's attitude to therapy - that one has to need therapy to have it.
For some the answer is a definite yes* and this particularly true if you are finding life impossible to manage.
However, my philosophy is that therapy can be beneficial to all of us at any time. So perhaps the real question is; Why do we feel we must need therapy, in order to have it?
We buy a new pair of shoes without needing them. However, spending money on psychological well-being is still difficult to do.
The following questions, and my responses to them, may help you to decide whether to have therapy, and if I am the right therapist for you. And if I am, do get in touch.
