Is psychotherapy for me?
“I want to improve my relationships.” “I want to feel better about myself.” “I have a problem and don’t know what to do.” “I want to get to know myself better.” “I need help with my child.” “I am overly stressed and it is affecting my life.” “I just broke up with my partner and feel like dying.” “I keep on making myself throw up after I eat and am getting sick.” “I don’t have any friends.” “My mother just died and I think I’m depressed.” “I’ve been raped.” “I think I’m interested in same gender partners but I’m not sure.” “I was there when the tsunami hit and I can’t get that vision out of my mind.”, etc..
