Need for Counseling or Psychotherapy
Everyone wants someone to listen to them. We as social animals have a need to feel connected to others. In this fast paced world, no one seems to have time. We even tend to ignore our feelings and emotions. This can lead to psychological issues like depression or anxiety. Not just this but people are facing emotional and psychological problems due to a number of reasons such as pandemic, isolation, work stress, academic stress, life transitions etc. If not dealt on time, they can cause serious harm to the individual or the people around them. Severe depression can lead to suicide, Anxiety leads to panic attacks or anxiety attacks and stress is related to high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases and other chronic illnesses. This is why counseling and psychotherapy is of vital importance in today’s world.
Counseling not only helps in overcoming problems it also helps in self discovery and personal growth. It can increase life satisfaction and help you live a fulfilling life.
How Counseling or Psychotherapy works
Counseling provides a safe place for you to share, explore, and challenge your emotions and thoughts. There is an alliance between therapist and client, which becomes the catalyst for change. This relationship is different than a friendship, familial relationship, or marriage. It differs because it comes without advice, judgment, or resentment of your true feelings. It offers understanding, acceptance, and empathy.
