The easy answer is, “All sorts of people!” Years ago, therapy had a stigma attached to it. It was believed you had to be either very disturbed or “weak” to seek it out. Fortunately, times have changed and now people from all walks of life and all different backgrounds go to counseling and it’s considered a normal and healthy resource. A wide range of people seek counseling for a variety of issues. Some of the reasons include desire for personal growth, navigating temporary bouts or long periods of depression or anxiety more effectively, managing stress, tackling substance abuse issues, improving relationships and communication skills and better understanding one’s past and how it impacts life, mood and relationships in the present day. Dynamic Change Counseling provides supportive and confidential psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families. Whatever your reason for considering counseling, I’m sure it’s a good one.
