Is therapy for me?

Speaking to someone who is warm and accepting can allow individuals the freedom to explore issues that they may not be able to share with others in their life. In this safe space, they can process painful experiences, gain new perspectives, re-connect with values and build emotional and mental resources to face future challenges with improved confidence.
