Life is often unfair. At different times it throws different challenges our way. Some we can handle, some we struggle with, and some knock us down, making it hard to get up. And when it’s hard to get up, therapy can help. People enter therapy for a variety of reasons. It takes courage to admit we need help, and strength and commitment to ride out the rhythms of therapy.
What is of paramount importance is that you feel comfortable with the therapist; that you feel the therapist is not just competent, supportive, and compassionate, but “gets” you. Therapy can be hard work, some of the hardest work you will do. But for therapy to be successful it requires a willingness on the part of the client or couple to roll up their sleeves and do the heavy lifting and deep digging when needed. And here is where it’s important that you feel your therapist is working with you and you can trust your therapist to be there for you.
While life may be unfair, learning how to get up when it knocks you down and discovering an interior strength to do that is deeply rewarding. You feel a renewed confidence that come what will, you can handle it.
