Seeking help using emotionally focused therapy can seem like an overwhelming task at first, especially when a person really needs it. Asking for this kind of help takes a level moral fiber that not all of us have. Any therapist is initially a stranger to all of their patients and that alone can put some people off ever wanting to go. But have you ever considered why a therapist does it all?
- Admitting that you need help is one of the bravest things a person can do.
- Deciding to seek therapy can feel especially daunting. While our friends and families know us, a therapist is a stranger at first.
- But for others, especially those who struggle with vulnerability, the idea of talking to anyone, let alone someone new, might feel out of the question.
