How Do I Know If I Need Therapy?

 Many of us struggling with addiction and mental illness are resistant to trying therapy and any other healing tools, often because we’re afraid to do the hard work required to get better. We’ve become so comfortable with avoiding our problems that the thought of actually facing them terrifies us. We don’t want to look at just how severe our addictive patterns have become. We’re in denial about just how bad our depressions are. We reject the idea of recovery, and as such don’t know much about therapy or its usefulness. We don’t know if it can help us, or if we even need it in the first place. How do we know if we need therapy?

We Can All Benefit

Oftentimes we associate needing therapy with being unable to cope in life, having hit rock bottom in our addictions, or after having been hospitalized. We often don’t realize that each of us could use a therapeutic relationship with a professional we trust, someone who has the expertise and experience to help us with our unique issues and challenges. Whether or not we’re in crisis or struggling at the moment, it can help us tremendously to have support as we venture inwards and work on our self-love and healing journeys.

Experiencing Unresolved Issues and Need for Support

There are some signs that therapy might be particularly helpful for us. If we’re experiencing a crisis that we can’t seem to resolve on our own, a therapist might be able to help. If we don’t feel we have anyone in our lives we can confide in, a therapist can be that person. If we feel as though we’re always unleashing our issues and painful stories on the people in our lives but don’t want to burden them, a therapist can be the perfect source of unbiased, objective support that won’t be emotionally compromised by our troubles. Very often when we’re struggling, we don’t take advantage of the sources of support that are available to us. Therapy is one of these, and we can find help in various forms – the counselors of our treatment programs, therapists at our neighborhood community centers, recovery coaches and private therapists, peer counseling initiatives, and group therapy programs.

At The Guest House Ocala, our recovery programs include many experiential modalities including traditional therapy, conscious connected breathwork, equine therapy, somatic experiencing, art in healing, grief therapy, mindfulness and other forms of therapy.
