The Courage to Start Therapy: Bridging the Gap Between Advocacy and Action

The Courage to Start Therapy: Bridging the Gap Between Advocacy and Action

Article | Psychotherapy
Despite increased mental health awareness and support from social media and celebrities, many people hesitate to start therapy due to stigma, fear, and misconceptions. The fear of being perceived as weak, the discomfort of opening up, and uncertainty about therapy often deter individuals. However, starting therapy is a courageous step toward personal growth and helps normalise seeking help. Promoting therapy as a routine part of self-care and debunking myths can bridge the gap between advocacy and action, leading to broader acceptance and understanding of mental health care.

Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

Another key advantage for Specialist
