Why I can’t go to therapy.
Excuses for not going to counseling.
So something’s not right in your life. Relationships are a mess, you feel down in the dumps and things just aren’t working out.
Maybe you should talk to somebody, maybe even a professional.
But who wants to go to a therapist?
Listen I understand and I appreciate your reasons for not calling a therapist. In fact I have listed some of the excuses that people use to avoid seeking help.
Let’s go over some of them and let me try to persuade you to get the help you need.
- I don’t trust this therapy stuff.
People get the wrong idea about therapy. In their minds they see a room with a couch and a guy with a chin beard taking notes.
Modern therapy is not just listening. Therapist’s help set goals, teach, provide tools to help with your problems and even give homework assignments. Therapy is very pro-active.
You are not alone and many people have gone to therapy to get help.
There is no couch in my office.
***Is there something deeper going on here?
What is really keeping you away from counseling? Is there guilt, or shame or even pride in your life that is keeping you away from feeling better and more in control of your life?
Do you want things to be the same in 6 months or a year?
You really need to do what needs to be done to get your life back. Therapy is worth the time and effort it really is.
