It’s a fact… Therapy works. When looking for a therapist or counselor many people have the same objective… To feel better. Truth be told, that is our objective here at TherapyWorks of Los Gatos as well.
We want you to feel better, enjoy life more, actualize change, manifest your dreams & goals, reduce your stress levels. At the same time we help you to figure out why you repeat detrimental behavior patterns, stay in unhealthy relationships, and so forth.
So let’s dive in and take a look at all the benefits you will gain from therapeutic sessions.
1) Awareness: Awareness is essential to helping you uncover, discover, and discard behaviors, issues and situations that are holding you back from living a fuller, well-rounded life. When working with a therapist you gain tools to help you better manage life while also becoming aware of your patterns of thinking and acting.
2) Reduce Stress: According to the American Psychological Association stress is linked to the six leading causes of death including cancer, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver, and suicide. During your sessions, your therapist will aid you in identifying stressors and stress triggers in your life, while also helping you create an action plan for how to deal with these situations when they next arise.
3) Non-Judgmental Listener: Your sessions are about one thing… You. There’s a big difference between calling up a friend and meeting with your therapist. First you’re meeting with a highly educated and trained professional. Their primary concern is helping you to feel better and to find positive solutions that will work for you and your life. Another added benefit is that everything you say is private. You don’t need to censor your thoughts and can speak freely in order to find the peace you are seeking.
4) Feel BETTER: Once you’ve started putting the tools you gain from therapy into action you will feel better. It may take some time but when the shift in your perspective happens, it will be noticeable! You will feel connected to your life again, gain a greater sense of self, define your purpose, and improve your quality of life.
And that’s what therapy is really all about: to feel better and not only achieve but sustain positive change in your life. Get motivated. We only have one life to live, let’s be grateful for what we have, strive for what we want and in the mean time feel good while doing the best we can!
