After years of psychotherapy myself, I would not recommend anything but to go through that process to every single person on earth, ok, maybe not every single one, but most of them. Having done my process, I am completely sure that doing therapy is a natural thing to do for those who suffer and have some questions about life and about themselves (and also for those who think they don’t think, but that is a bunch hard to catch). It is not an easy task and definitely a bumpy ride, but its worth it. Even though I still have issues, and luckily I will continue to be human and not 100% ‘fixed’, I feel so much better with myself, I have learnt to know me, my processes, my coping mechanisms, my vicious circles, so I know what to expect and how to deal better with it, or just wait until it fades away.
My next step, as a person and as a psychologist, is to spread the word and work towards the easier access to psychotherapy 🙂 so fear not and join the challenge!
