What did you get therapy for? Did it help? Also what's the main purpose of therapy? How much does it cost per session?
i do agree this forum acts like therapy and actually gives you the answers you want. Provides info on various methods so that we don't opt for a dangerous method with low success ratesSure.
My biggest problem with therapy is it’s just a bunch of venting. They lead with simple questions like “how are you feeling” or “what have you been up to” and expect you to just ramble on about stuff for the duration of the session.
It’s very much a situation of “what you put into it is what you get outa it.” If you’re kinda withdrawn like me and not the best at articulating your feelings then conversation goes a bit flat.
Very rarely was I given tools to manage my emotions or told halfway decent advice.
So yeah, if you need an outlet to express yourself therapy can be helpful. Honestly this forum does just as good if not better than a therapist in terms of that. Plus it’s free and I don’t gotta spend time driving there and back, sitting in a session I’d rather not be in.
i went to therapy for suicidal tendencies but we didnt really talk about that, more or less things that could be improved and how they could be improved in my life. and the point of therapy is rehabilitation, since healthcare is publicly funded, i never spent a dime for my therapy sessions. if one therapist doesnt seem to do the trick, try getting a different one.What did you get therapy for?
