It has been proclaimed: today is National Psychotherapy Day!
Many people have a long list of assumptions about psychotherapy. What many may not know is the long list of potential benefits that can come from engaging in psychotherapy.
So in honor of National Psychotherapy Day, I ask you to reflect on your ideas about psychotherapy. Have you had direct experience with it? Have you seen media examples of it? Do you have a positive or negative attitude towards psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy has been mysterious and secretive for too long. Let's start a more open conversation. The more we clear barriers that block access, the more people may be able to access psychotherapy as a resource for help.
