Six Myths about Therapy
Our society has formed many misconceptions about therapy and mental health. Asking for help is one of the most difficult things we all struggle with and more if asking for help has a negative stigma attached to it.
I also understand that being completely vulnerable with another person can also be very difficult. Sharing your feelings, experiences, and thoughts with a person that you barely know can be challenging. It is important that you develop a relationship with your therapist to develop healing and growth.
Therapy is the same thing as you going to the gym and taking care of your physical body. Going to therapy is like going to the gym for your mental health. We don’t often think that our mental health can affect our physical health, but they are connected!
People often know that they need the help but refuse to ask for it. Here are some common myths about therapy that might prevent people to get the help they need.
I bet you heard of some.
People who go to therapy are crazy.
This is not true! Clients that seek therapy are people that are going through daily life problems. These problems include, relationship issues, stress, medical illnesses, divorce, and grief.
I don't need therapy. I talk to my friends and they are my therapist.
Although having friends that you can trust is great, friends are not trained to improve your mental health for the long run. Friends can listen and give you advice, but working with a therapist will give you skills to live a happy life for the long run.
Therapist just sit there and listen. Their job is so easy.
Therapist do listen and talk to clients but its not that easy. Therapist actively listen and find deeper emotions, ideas, and behaviors in a clients story. Psychotherapist and the client work together to identify problems, appropriate goals, and go through the process of therapy.
My therapist will prescribed medication.
Although every state is different, most therapist cannot prescribed medication. Psychiatrist and doctors are the only ones that can prescribed medication for mental health. Research shows, that the best treatment for mental illness is a combination of psychotherapy and medication, but therapist can't prescribe medication.
Two or five sessions will solve all my problems.
Although it is difficult to determine how many sessions you will need to feel better, a few sessions might not solve your problems. Everyone is different and everyone experiences a different mental health challenge. Each mental health challenge might take different times to achieve the result you want. It also depends on the approach the therapist is using.
You must have serious issues if you are going to therapy.
This is not true! You don't have to have a serious issue to go to therapy. Many people that go to therapy might be struggling with daily life problems or just want to improve their way of living by having someone to talk to and learn more about themselves.
