What a great question, right? Before I spend my time and resources – does therapy work? The short answer is, yes. But…you have to be willing to put in the work. Unfortunately, therapy is not a passive process that requires zero participation on your part. If only life were that easy! Therapy is an investment in yourself, so it’s important to ask yourself some questions before committing to therapy sessions so that your time (and your therapist’s time) is well spent. Below, please find several questions to explore and ponder so that you can gauge your level of motivation in making changes and working toward the more fulfilling life you have envisioned for yourself!
- Why am I seeking therapy now?
- What has happened that is triggering my response to seek out therapy?
- Is this occurrence enough to motivate me to work in therapy, along with a therapist, to make changes that will serve me presently and for years to come?
- Am I at a point in my life wherein I feel I can accept support and guidance toward a different way of being and thinking?
- Do I have interest in working on becoming more introspective, or self reflective, and seeking answers to (potentially) life long questions?
- Are my relationships suffering?
- Do I find myself wishing for improvement but become completely overwhelmed when I think about how to improve?
These questions are meant to get you thinking and based on how you answer some or all of them, you may be ready to come in for therapy and start on your path to a life that more closely resembles what you’ve always expected and desired for yourself.
