As you are reading this you are probably already considering the possibility of receiving the support on Maui that therapy can provide you. You probably have questions like, do you really need it, how does it help, will it work? We all carry impressions and vague ideas of what therapy is and what it involves.
As human beings we live on a shifting spectrum of mental and emotional wellbeing, just as we do of physical health. Therapy can be of benefit wherever you are on that spectrum. As a culture we are only just at the beginning of accepting the importance and effect of our mental and emotional health, and seeing them as important as physical health. Seeing a therapist can be of benefit wherever you are on the spectrum of mental and emotional health from treatment of mental illness to creating ever increasing wellbeing and greater freedom.
If you are experiencing any form of mental or emotional suffering then therapy can provide an important way of working with and alleviating such suffering. Most often this is why people come to see a therapist.
What does this suffering look like?
Some examples are…
If you are unhappy and don’t know why.
If you are unhappy, do know why and feel powerless to change things.
If you are depressed and have little enthusiasm for life.
If you suffer with anxiety or stress.
If you have problems with anger.
If you have uncontrollable moods.
If you have habits or behaviors that you can’t control.
If you experience feelings of guilt or blame.
If relationships are dissatisfying or stuck in negative patterns.
In general if something in your life has become dissatisfying or problematic it creates mental-emotional suffering. We often carry a belief that we just have to put up with these things – it’s not true, and we don’t. We all deserve support and assistance with life’s challenges, therapy can provide it for you.
Being in therapy can also be of benefit when further along the wellness spectrum of mental & emotional health. For some working with a therapist is a way of attaining a more fulfilling and meaningful life. Life is better for all of us when we have greater levels of personal integration and emotional intelligence, self awareness and understanding. Life can become richer and more satisfying as you relate differently to yourself and to others.
