Five Reasons to Attend Therapy (as stated by Nedra Glover):

  • You won’t hear things like ‘it’s gonna be okay, I know how you feel, you will get over it.”
  • You get an entire hour to talk about whatever you want guilt-free.
  • Saying things out loud helps you understand them in a different way.
  • A therapist helps you develop insight and coping skills
  • There is no competition in dialogue. A therapist won’t talk about their problems and make those problems bigger than yours.
