Why Getting Therapy Isn’t Scary

Why Getting Therapy Isn’t Scary

The stigma attached to therapy is often along the lines of “therapy is scary, and I can handle my problems on my own.” But the stigma that therapy is a scary, daunting, uninviting process couldn’t be further from the truth. Our mental health services in Minneapolis have helped tons of people navigate their problems and live a better life.

We’ve outlined only a handful of reasons why therapy is a positive experience.

Therapy is normal

Many people avoid reaching out for professional help because they’re scared they’ll be labeled as “crazy.” In fact, going to therapy is a sign of strength rather than weakness. Tackling your problems head-on takes courage, but we promise you will feel better when you take the proper steps to get better.

Your information remains private

Therapists are legally obligated to keep any and all information you share with them confidential. Unlike speaking with someone you know, when talking with your therapist, there’s no chance the information will spread.

There’s nothing therapists haven’t heard

You don’t need to worry about telling your therapist something shocking or upsetting; chances are, they’ve heard it all before. At the off chance your story catches them off guard, they will never pass judgment or react uncomfortably.

Therapy isn’t a lifelong commitment

You don’t need to worry about dumping years of your life into your therapy sessions. Just like you, therapists want you to make strides in your progress, so you can spend more time living your best life.

You’ll gain confidence

What’s so scary about that?! As you begin to open up and navigate your emotions, you will become more confident about how to handle different situations.
