Who decides to go to a therapist?
Anyone who would like to feel better or learn new strategies and approaches to life and relationships might want to go to therapy sessions. It’s important to realize, though, that just as with medical treatments, such as surgery, many people feel more uncomfortable after treatment begins before they feel better. Therapy is a process, though, and is more like learning something new, instead of a medical treatment, such as getting a shot of penicillin. You, the client, are very involved in the process of therapy and in whatever changes you experience.
