Unfortunately, therapy, counseling, and psychological services are often stigmatized as something that’s only necessary for those with “problems,” those who are mentally ill, or those who cannot cope with day-to-day life. Sadly, this is a huge mischaracterization of what therapy is, who it’s intended for, and who can benefit from spending time with a therapist.
The truth is that all individuals, both those with diagnosable mental illnesses and those who are merely dealing with the stress of everyday life, can benefit from individual therapy. Aurora, Illinois therapists at Counseling Works are available to help individuals understand the source of their stress and anxiety, develop strategies that work for navigating stressors and relationships, and learn how to get to the very best version of themselves as possible.
There are many different outlets for stress relief and many different ways that a person can cultivate a healthy relationship with the world around them. To be sure, things like exercise, mindful breathing, eating a healthy diet, and maintaining a close relationship with family and friends are all positives that contribute to happiness; however, working with a therapist is a unique experience that cannot be simulated. Indeed, when you work with a counselor and pursue individual therapy, you have the opportunity to engage in a unique, neutral relationship with another person with whom you have no personal history. What’s more, this person is a professional who understands how the brain works and can help you to understand your feelings and experiences, as well as how to gain a new perspective.
When you work with our individual therapists in Aurora, you can benefit from:
