How Do You Know You're Ready For Counseling?

I recently had the honor of speaking with a former client who shared their gratitude of their experience in therapy a couple of years ago. They explained how before therapy when they thought of their future with their spouse, they could not see "forever". Now, not only do they see "forever", they look forward to it. How do you know if you are ready for therapy? Here are two signs you might be ready for therapy:

  1. When you are feeling pain in your life & relationship that is not getting resolved or you find yourself sweeping it under the rug.
  2. When other people are pointing things out to you. Things that others see you need to work on, or need to take a serious look at.

All week we'll be discussing signs that might be nudging you, or have been eating at you for some time now that you might want to give more attention. Thanks for reading!
