(and when) DO WE NEED IT?
is called upon when a need for change
is called for by the individual's psyche. This happens when "things"
and "issues" start disturbing the flow of our life, interfering
with our thoughts and acts, and at times even feel like "taking
over" our peace. Occurrences of that kind may be triggered
by a specific event or just "pop up" after a long period
- Being stressed
or depressed, troubled by those "things" and "issues",
fears and phobias,annoying
thoughts and/or habits are usually far from indicating that we have
a "mental illness" or "mental condition". It just
indicates our humanity, since life is a complex phenomenon. We are
constantly seeking for meaning and
growth, and being a part of a
larger whole is often a painstaking process.
we seek professional help when "things" start bothering
and disturbing us, being triggered by an event or accumulating then
"popping up". But people also turn to psychotherapy just
because they arrive at a stage where they want to find and explore
their own inner Meaning and direction.
