Does Everyone Need Therapy

Who would benefit, who wouldn’t and does everyone need therapy?

The short answer of course is no, not everyone needs therapy, but just because you don’t need something doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from it.

Most of us know that it’s important to look after our physical health, after all, it’s the only body we get, so it’s important that we keep it as healthy as possible for as long as possible. You don’t need to, you just know that if you want to increase the likelihood of living a longer, healthier and happier life, you should.

And so, given that the mind resides in the body (the only body we get) it makes sense to keep it fit and healthy also, right?

Therapy isn’t always about what needs to be fixed, it can help be helpful in so many ways, and you don’t have to wait until you need it to use it.



I believe that if more of us looked at therapy as a health check for the mind, a regular health check, we would see a decrease in mental health issues and very likely, live in a happier society.

Therapy isn’t always about the negative either. Talking about the things in your life that make you happy, things that you love to do, and the things that you’ve achieved and are grateful for will make you feel even happier!

A therapy room is a safe place, a sanctuary, a place where you can be you, without judgement. A therapist will be objective, have an empathetic ear and can help you navigate your way through challenges, major decisions and life choices. You might be looking for clarity, for change, to trust your gut, to love yourself, to improve your relationships, and to have confidence in yourself and your abilities.

And let’s not forget the more common reasons people come into therapy. Stress, anxiety, fears, phobias, depression, addiction, bad habits, pain management, childhood trauma, emotional trauma, grief, fertility issues, menopause, insomnia, self-improvement, sports performance, stage fright the list goes on.

It’s good to talk, to get things off your chest, to be heard and to hear yourself. To talk about your dreams, literally and otherwise, your ambitions, your fears, your worries and concerns, your mistakes and your triumphs, things you might not share with anyone else and gain a better understanding of your emotions, your patterns, habits, inner thoughts and inner self-talk.

Your mental and emotional health is an investment, and investing your time and energy into looking after it, may very well turn out to be the best investment you could make.
