Therapy can be confusing when you don't have an experience with it. Hopefully, this blog post can make it feel a little less daunting. Sometimes therapy and counselling are used interchangeably because they cover a lot of the same things.
Why choose therapy?
Therapy can help, it is as simple as that. People's struggles can feel like they wouldn't be suitable for therapy, but for the most part they are. For example, even chronic pain can be reduced through therapy. The common things that most therapists deal with are more mental, things like struggling with big emotions and changes. It can be helpful to talk things out, to figure out how you feel. Sometimes you might want some more practical solutions and skills. Therapy can do this for you. It can also help to process things that are sticking with you so that they don't feel so heavy to carry around.
