Why I Can’t Go To Therapy.



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.

  • Therapy is just for crazy people. 

    I really don’t work with “crazy” people. Crazy people are scary and I would send them out to a place that deals with craziness.

    That’s not to say I don’t work with people that have some crazy ideas and thoughts.

    Know this; therapy is for normal, ordinary folks just like you.

    In therapy we deal with everyday issues like stress, relationship hassles, everyday bumps in the road and the hurtful stuff that is getting in the way of being a better you.

    People that seek therapy are pretty normal. The people that don’t seek help might be the  crazy ones.

***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.
