If you are struggling with relationships, divorce, communication, career, addictions, depression, anxiety or self-esteem, therapy can help. If you have been considering therapy, or have just begun, this book is for you. Someone To Talk To will give you an insider’s look at what therapy is like, preparing you for what to expect. It addresses the concerns you might have about reaching out for a therapist’s help. You will recognize yourself in the stories that others tell. You will find answers to your questions, and reassurance for your fears. Here is a quote from the book:
“It takes courage to change. Talking about it is easy, but, at the moment of truth, when it’s time to take action, something happens – you falter, pull back, get scared. Frustrating, isn’t it? To change the course of your life, you have to be willing to step over the edge of the familiar, into the unknown.
What is it that stops action? What allows people to complain a lot, and even to discuss alternatives, but never make a move? One answer is fear – fear of risk, and fear of the unknown. It’s natural to fear the unknown – it means giving up control, being vulnerable. It takes a lot of courage to really face yourself, admit problems, and be open to change.
You might have been taught that strength means self-reliance, and handling it alone. There’s no disgrace in asking for help; you’re fortunate that help is available and there is a choice of sources.”
Someone To Talk To will give you the encouragement you need to change situations which have been painful for a long time, and the promise of new possibilities in your life.
