What is Therapy?
What is therapy? most of us think of therapy scenes in movies; the client is lying on a sofa, the therapist has almost no facial expression and the therapy begins with ”Let’s go back to your childhood.” In fact, this is not really what happens during therapy. Therapy is a process of discovery that allows you to realize your feelings, thoughts, beliefs about yourself and others, your attitudes and unconscious driving forces that you do not even realize in daily life, accompanied by mental health professionals who have completed their necessary training. The most important purpose of this discovery process is to gain insight into the challenges you are experiencing, to make changes in your thoughts and emotions, to identify the motivation you need to implement these changes and the appropriate ways for change.
We all want someone to listen to us and understand. This is one of the reasons we came to therapy. Today, the interest in therapy has increased, but some people still say ”I do this with my family&friends” but this is wrong. What we do with our family& friend is actually havin a heart-to-heart talk and it’s not beneficial. But in thearpy we focus on fixing the problems and change instead of just complaining about them.
Who is a therapist?
The therapist accompanies you in therapy but at the same time your friend is your confidant. The therapist is always there for you and never judges you. Therapist makes youunderstand yourself in all aspects. And to understand them as you agree, to empathize. The therapist will hold you by your hand and take you on a journey with you. In this journey, the therapist does not leave you where you are going.
However, you should remember that no therapist has a magic wand. You need to make an effort to get the most out of the journey. If you are not willing and do not actively participate in therapy, you may not get good results. In addition to actively participating in therapy, a warm and close relationship with the therapist is also important for this purpose.
With this journey you actively participate, your destiny may change. Your fate is always hidden in your personality, that is, in your habits, in your truths. Being able to look at your past and your personality allows you to see your future like a fortune teller. So you actually get the power to change your destiny.
