Will therapy be any good for me? Because you know, I am mostly normal and I think therapy is for me

Therapy is a valuable tool for self-development; setting and achieving goals; overcoming relationship problems; solving sexual issues; controlling anger outbursts, improving communication skills; and learning new ways of solving problems. Although psychotherapy is an effective treatment for mental health problems, not everyone who benefits from psychotherapy is diagnosed with a mental illness.

Psychotherapy can help anyone looking to

  • Learn to manage unhealthy reactions, such as anger, road rage or passive-aggressive behavior

  • Understand how their past is affecting the present

  • Resolve conflicts with their partner or someone else in their life

  • Cope with major life changes, such as divorce, the death of a loved one or the loss of a job

  • Relieve anxiety or stress due to work or other situations

  • Come to terms with an ongoing or serious physical health problem, such as diabetes, cancer or long-term (chronic) pain

  • Recover from physical or sexual abuse or witnessing violence

  • Cope with sexual problems, whether they're due to a physical or psychological cause

  • Reduce symptoms of mental illness

  • Prevent the development of mental illnesses

  • Sleep better, if they have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep (insomnia)

  • Learn to be more authentic and understand who they are.


Psychotherapy is also used for treating mental health issues such as

  • Anxiety disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, panic disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Mood disorders, such as depression or bipolar disorder

  • Addictions, such as alcoholism, drug dependence or compulsive gambling

  • Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia

  • Personality disorders, such as borderline personality disorder or dependent personality disorder

  • Schizophrenia or other disorders that cause detachment from reality (psychotic disorders)
