The Benefits of Therapy

What is Therapy?

Therapy is a source of support for a broad variety of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. Attending therapy sessions can help control troubling symptoms, so a person can achieve an overall higher quality of life and well-being. Focuses of therapy can include difficulties in coping with daily life; the impacts of trauma (medical illness or loss of a loved one), and specific mental disorders including anxiety, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, and eating disorders. 

Therapy can be beneficial for children and adults. Sessions can be conducted in an individual, couple, family, or group setting. The trust between the patient and therapist is essential in order for the treatment to be beneficial for the patient. Therapy can be short-term or long-term depending on the severity of the patient’s symptoms or the complexity of the situation. 

Does Therapy Work?

Research has shown that most people who attend therapy sessions experience symptom relief and are better able to function in their daily lives. Clients receiving therapy treatment are 79% better off than those who do not seek treatment. Therapy has been shown to improve behavior and emotions that are linked to positively affect both the brain and body. Examples of positive impacts can include: fewer sick days, increased energy levels, fewer medical problems, better communication skills and increased satisfaction with work. 

The benefits of therapy are endless! The benefits of therapy include many improvements in different areas of your daily life. These improvements can include: better coping skills, building stronger relationships, gain in your self-confidence, reaching your goals, enhancing your problem-solving skills, and feeling stronger in the face of challenges. Sometimes talking to someone who isn’t biased and can provide an outside perspective, can bring things into a different light or make you think about a situation more clearly.
