As a therapist, people come into my office for a variety of reasons. They do not come into my office on a daily basis because they only want to chat. Sure, it’s nice to have someone to talk with, however, my clients have a purpose for visiting me.
Each person’s purpose for therapy is different, some come to me to help them solve a problem, some have an expectation I can fix them, some need guidance on how to move forward, some come to dump out everything that is bothering them, some come because their partner has asked them to, and some come seeking help from the mysterious magic wand. Keep in mind the wand doesn’t exist and there is no magic.
One of the most common issues that surfaces is how fear dominates our lives. More importantly, I find that it’s the irrational fears that do the most damage. Friendly remember…You can only mess up your own life…no one can do it for you.
