The goal of therapy is to gain relief from psychological pain. To achieve this we talk of what’s been happening. Therapy helps us gain clarity and come to new understandings. We can actively see we are progressing and changing. The things we learn about ourselves begin replacing our old ways of reacting to pain and distress. Real and lasting changes made in therapy are akin to developing a muscle that makes you sturdier and stronger.
Many of us are fortunate to have well meaning family members and many good friends with whom we can talk and celebrate the good times. Yet, sometimes there appears in our lives a line or point that needs the kind of hearing that even our dearest relationships cannot provide. Therapy is a supportive conversation that helps us to gain understanding and relief.
