In psychotherapy, or “talk therapy”, the therapist and the client create a therapeutic alliance. This is a relationship where the therapist helps you gain better ways to handle your problems. Sometimes the therapist will listen, sometimes they will talk and give guidance. Each session is an opportunity for you to explore new ways to look at your life, and new methods to help yourself and make improvements in your life.
In our modern era, it is socially acceptable to reach out for help for mental and emotional problems, so it doesn’t usually mean you are mentally ill if you attend therapy. Some people do seek out therapy because of longstanding childhood issues they are hoping to get relief about. Many people come to therapy for very specific problem they want help with, or just because of the stresses of a too busy lifestyle. Some come to therapy for marital difficulties, or for an overall feeling of depression or anxiety. The Positive Self Center believes that as conscious human beings we are all seeking understanding and betterment. We all have wisdom and deserve to have inner peace, serenity, self-love and freedom.
