“Help me, I’m stuck”

Psychotherapy deals with something that concerns all of us: life itself. In the normal way, we survive hardships and overcome our problems by ourselves and with the help of friends or family. Sometimes, however, we find ourselves in a difficult, painful or traumatic situation, when our own efforts are no longer sufficient; we need more help than our friends are able to offer and may feel completely alone. It may be difficult to acknowledge we need help; often it embarrasses us and we view it as a weakness. Many of us do anything we can to avoid seeing a therapist.

Being open to what you need has nothing to do with weakness. It is courageous, powerful, and an important first act of kindness toward yourself
