If you even suggest the word Therapy to anyone who needs it their 1st reaction is that they don’t need it, as ‘they are not mad’. If at all there is a 2nd reaction it almost always is, ‘Therapy is so expensive!’
Well, any medical treatment can be expensive. Holidays can be expensive maintaining a lifestyle can be expensive. However, these are the expenses no one seems to mind too much. It’s strange how helping one feel better is outweighed by how much you need to spend on doing so.
If you have reached a point where you are finding out about Therapy and its cost, there is a good chance that the thought has crossed your mind that you probably need it. Bravo, if you have concluded that.
I have always believed that Therapy helps us fine-tune our minds. Like we get our cars serviced for better performance, therapy helps us service our minds. Considering our minds are never at rest, imagine how grateful yours would be if you thought it needed servicing (therapy) and you provided it.
If you have decided to seek Therapy, it also means you have decided to lead a better quality of life. Therapy helps in more ways than one can imagine.
When your Mental Health gets better, your physical health starts improving as well. Therapy brings healing, and a changed perspective is what follows next.
A better understanding of self and better sleep are the other gifts. Better sleep, higher energy levels, and more stamina are the bonuses.
The reason Mental Health has a stigma attached to it is largely because of ignorance. If you have decided to and go ahead with seeking Therapy you have done your bit to educate yourself and others and are one step closer to helping erase the stigma.
The good news is that due to Mental Health being talked about more than ever there are more Therapists available online, with session costs to suit all budgets. Don’t shy away from finding out a Therapist who would suit you and your budget, both.
Therapy may be expensive but the returns from seeking it are priceless.
