  • Values clarification helps you to better understand what it is you truly value and carve our practical strategies for moving towards it.

Therapy and growth

Ultimately, therapy is about growth and creating opportunities for positive change.

And in addition to improving traditional mental health struggles, therapy can also be a powerful and efficient way to make progress on personal goals or aspirations.

"Needing" therapy

By framing therapy in terms of what we need rather than what we could benefit from, many people experience too much shame or embarrassment to try it.

Not everybody needs therapy. But just because you don’t need something doesn’t mean you couldn’t benefit from it.

Reasons people begin therapy

  • Crisis and stress management.
  • To strengthen a marriage or relationship. Your marriage doesn’t have to be falling apart for marriage counseling or couples therapy to be a good idea.
  • To learn more about themselves or to build a specific psychological or emotional skill.
  • Emotional support. Everybody needs a shoulder to cry on or a patient ear to vent to from time to time.
