When do we seek therapy? when we feel overwhelmed, depressed, stressed, anxious, stagnated, confused, challenged, lonely...when we are unhappy. Simple like that. And what are some therapy expectations that we have? To stop feeling overwhelmed, depressed, stressed, anxious, stagnated etc..,to stop being unhappy. I have good news for you! This is attainable. Yes, you can stop being unhappy. However, do you want to be happy? Silly question I know. But tell me please, after all this negativity that you experience do you have the expectation to be happy?Let me answer, most of the people say “no".
