Are You Considering Therapy?
“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are”
- Carl Jung
If you are looking at this website, then chances are you are considering therapy. For those of you who want to know more about how therapy works, I have written a series of posts to answer some of the more commonly asked questions.
Beginning therapy is a big-step- and a brave one; and feeling apprehensive about it is entirely normal. For some people, making the decision to begin therapy can be summed up by the expression ‘rock-bottom’, whilst others will see it as a strategy to ‘regain control’, or use it as an opportunity to gain clarity or wisdom about themselves. For all of us, taking the time to fully befriend ourselves is a deeply human instinct that fast-paced living encourages us to neglect. Carl Jung famously said, “the privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are”. Hopefully, by reading some of these posts I will debunk some of the myths about therapy (and therapists), and ease any worries you may have about beginning what could become an incredibly transformative experience- so that you can take your first step to “becoming who you truly are”.
