How can therapy help me?

A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy. Often it is helpful just to know that someone understands. Therapy can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or points you in the direction of a solution. It also provides support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for resolving adversities such as depression, anxiety, feelings of stagnation in one’s life, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, low self-image and creative blocks, among others. Therapy can also give significant help in furthering personal growth, increasing the capacity for harmonious interpersonal relationships, resolving family conflicts, and dealing more efficiently with the hassles of daily life. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how open you are to changing, to questioning your old beliefs and behavior patterns and to putting into practice what you learn. Some of the benefits available from therapy include:

•    Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals and values
