Silent J,

I have been in and out of therapy for years and have always felt that it helped me.

My experience has been that I go and work on specific issues and then take some time away before going back. I think I reach a certain point and find that I am not willing to grow or change and have to wait until the time is right and go back to make progress.

It has been good for me but it is imprtant to work with someone who challenges you to move forward; this person dosen't need to be someone who's approval you seek, or that you get too close to.

Hi Silent,

I too believe that I benefited greatly from therapy and found that my life did improve.

As Cary mentioned, I had a therapist that challenged me and taught me to challange myself and my thoughts, beliefs, etc. It wasn't easy. It was a lot of hard work that was difficult and painful at times. But in the end, I am grateful that I gave myself the chance to grow as a person and I am proud of myself for that.

I am also grateful that I now have the awareness that is necessary to continue to challenge myself and to improve my life and my relationships.

I really believe in it!! Ive been seeing one since the age 14- Ive only experienced two that really didnt work for me- but I had about 3-4 that were excellent. The longest I stayed with one was for about 3-4 years off and on. She helped me through an eating disorder. Her approach was cognitive behavioral. The ones who utilize a couple of techniques are the best- always ask. Existential is also very good- I always left my existential therapist feeling very confident! Find one that is warm and compassionate also.

THe two that didnt work for me- were decent. But the ones that did work were super compassionate.

Good luck to you! Therapy is for anyone who is willing to give it a try.
