Adults usually seek out therapy when they are facing life changes, a crisis, or a situation that causes distress. If this is your first experience with therapy, it is less like medicine and more like exercise. You work on yourself and find new ways of managing your circumstances. If you have had therapy before, you may seek out therapy again at another time in your life, sometimes for the same or a similar problem. As you get older, you gain a different perspective about your problems.
