Have you ever felt overwhelmed by stress, anxiety, or depression? Very often, people want the support of loved ones and friends, but do not want to burden or worry them. Sometimes sharing distress with friends and family can also lead to unwanted judgement or advice. This can cause you to feel lonely and unable to find resolutions to problems. Participation in therapy with a trained mental health professional provides the opportunity to confide in someone outside of your daily life who’s only intention is to guide you toward understanding underlying triggers for distress, finding effective and healthy coping patterns, and solutions to problems.
Speaking to a nonjudgmental or personally invested party, is often the most valuable aspect of counseling and leads to the most significant improvements in managing distressing thoughts and feelings. In fact, research has shown that the therapeutic relationship is the leading factor in producing successful outcomes in therapy.
