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, for a similar or different concern.
Some examples of problems that adults seek help for are:
Sometimes your culture of origin does not recommend that you tell a stranger (a therapist) about your private issues. This can make you feel alone and isolated. Therapy can be helpful for many people. Therapy is confidential and your concerns will be kept private in the safety of a therapy space.
