COVID-19 and the resultant stress, anxiety and isolation have wreaked havoc on the coping abilities of even the most emotionally agile and healthy among us. With no end in sight, how do we care for ourselves in the months ahead?
Therapy is an investment of your time and money. It’s important to understand up front how much therapy will cost you. This should be an explicit conversation, and one that you should feel free to return to if it ends up feeling unmanageable.
Establishing a trusting relationship is the cornerstone of effective therapy, so talk openly with your therapist about what works for you and what does not, especially if you’ve had experience with therapy in the past.
Therapy can be beneficial to anyone seeking to improve their personal or professional lives. The process can lead to richer, more satisfying experiences and relationships, as well as a deeper sense of calm, intention, and direction in our day-to-day lives.
