In Marriage. Why I Can’t Go To Therapy. 2


Why I can’t go to therapy.

Excuses for not going to counseling. 

So something’s not right in your life. Relationships are a mess, you feel down in the dumps and things just aren’t working out.

Maybe you should talk to somebody, maybe even a professional.

But who wants to go to a therapist?

Listen I understand and I appreciate your reasons for not calling a therapist. In fact I have listed some of the excuses that people use to avoid seeking help.

Let’s go over some of them and let me try to persuade you to get the help you need.

  • We can fix it ourselves.

If you could have fixed your problems in your life and marriage by yourself, you would have.

Yes I know. You thought you could handle the problem yourselves.

Sometimes things just get out of control and you need the help of a neutral person like a therapist to help you.

Therapy provides a safe place to share and a person that can see things from a different perspective.

Therapists have been trained to deal with the stuff you have been going through.

***Is there something deeper going on here?


What is really keeping you away from counseling? Is there guilt, or shame or even pride in your life that is keeping you away from feeling better and more in control of your life?

Do you want things to be the same in 6 months or a year?

You really need to do what needs to be done to get your life back. Therapy is worth the time and effort it really is.
