It’s so interesting to see the evolution of therapy as a topic in understanding how we still view it today. If you ask me, everyone should go to therapy. Truly, no exceptions. Whether that’s done weekly, monthly or fortnightly it’s so important to have someone who listens, understands, and supports you. It becomes even more crucial when the person on the other side can truly empathise with your experiences. Including therapy in your life is you, choosing yourself, creating space, and making your mental and emotional health a priority. The same way we go to the hospital if something is wrong physically, shifting our mindsets to doing exactly the same for anything that is not visible is imperative to a healthier, happier lifestyle. Having someone outside of your circle that can be impartial yet supportive is essential to understanding yourself and as a result, learning how to live better.

So much of what we do and how we are is rooted in our childhood and the experiences that shaped us and therapy is such a beautiful practice of unpacking all of it whilst shedding what no longer serves and most importantly armoring ourselves with the tools to protect and enhance our wellbeing.
