Frequently Asked Questions
1. Does seeing a therapist mean that I am crazy or have mental issue?
No. Everyone faces challenges in their walk of life, but not everyone knows how to cope with the negative emotional burden that comes with it; and that doesn't mean that they are crazy or have mental issues. It only means that they need guidance, they need NEW knowledge and wisdom to help them cope with the emotional stress and have better mental clarity.
Our negative emotional burdens stem from the fact that most parents and school do not prepare us for the emotional stress that we may receive in life; they only remind us to be successful. But success comes with a lot of responsibilities and challenges, yet; we weren't told how to deal with it. Some may be resilient enough to have great coping mechanism, some may not. So seeing a therapist is like seeing a car mechanic to seek advice on your car issues because you do not have such knowledge; you needed some one in that field to assist you; same goes to seeing a therapist to receive assistant and guidance about life.
