Gain insight into why you might be hesitating to seek help and make positive changes in your life. As a multi-faceted individual myself, I’ve listened to countless individuals share their regrets about waiting too long to take action. Let’s explore what could be holding you back and help you create a ripple effect of positive transformation.

8 Of the most common reasons why we humans take so long to ask for help:

1. – I can do it myself –

Are you tired of feeling like you’re stuck on a negative rollercoaster? It’s easy to think “I can do it myself,” but sometimes that may not be the best approach. Perhaps you don’t have the tools or knowledge to effectively solve the problem, or maybe you’re unaware of how it’s impacting other areas of your life. Just thinking about doing something isn’t enough – it’s taking action that leads to real results and forward progress.

When faced with emotional challenges like anxiety or depression, it’s easy to get lost in your own thoughts. But don’t worry, there is hope! Seeking guidance and support can make a world of difference in overcoming these challenges. And if you choose to go it alone, be sure to set realistic goals and track your progress so you can see just how far you’ve come. Remember, there’s always a boundary to every problem, so keep pushing forward!

2. – If I look for help people will think I’m … –

Don’t let fear hold you back from seeking the help you need. From the day we were born, we’ve relied on others for support and guidance. It’s important to remember that reaching out for help doesn’t make you weak or abnormal. In fact, acknowledging that you need help is a sign of strength and courage. Don’t worry about what others may think or say, because at the end of the day, your happiness and health are what truly matter. Invest in yourself and consider exploring therapy to gain valuable insight into who you are and how you can live your best life.

3. – I can’t be bothered and I don’t have time –

There are plenty of options available that cater to your needs, even from the comfort of your own home. But take a moment to consider the cost of not taking action. Where could you be if you just took a few steps forward? Sometimes it’s worth taking a moment to reevaluate what’s truly important and where your time is actually going. You might be surprised by the positive changes that follow.

4. – I sought therapy before and didn’t help –

Don’t give up on therapy just because you had a bad experience in the past. There are countless types of therapy and therapists out there, and not everyone is a perfect match for everyone. You wouldn’t stick with a product, service, or friend that wasn’t working for you, so why not take the same approach with therapy? Take the initiative to reach out to therapists and ask the questions that matter to you. If you find one that feels like a good fit, give it a try. Remember, therapy is a process, not an instant fix, and it requires your active participation. Keep an open mind and don’t be discouraged if you don’t see results immediately. You’re on the right path.

I invite you to be open about your concerns and expectations. 


5. – Therapy is expensive –

Investing in therapy is like investing in yourself. While it may seem expensive, the benefits you gain from seeking help can greatly outweigh the costs. Take a step back and think about what you could gain from therapy instead of focusing on what you might be missing out on. Ultimately, therapy is one of the most valuable investments you can make for your present and future well-being.

6. – Therapy is uncomfortable, I self medicate –

Exploring new skills and making changes can be challenging and uncomfortable, but therapy can provide a safe and supportive environment to help ease the transition. With the guidance of a caring professional, discomfort can transform into a newfound freedom. It’s important to remember that psychiatric medications may not work for everyone and there are potential risks associated with self-medicating with psychoactive drugs. Seeking help from a therapist can provide a healthier and more effective path towards healing.

While psychiatric medication may be effective for some, hypnotherapy and psychotherapy offer a chemical-free approach to dealing with mental health concerns. Not only do they lack the unwanted side effects of medication, but they also serve as an active and empowering method of coping. Even those who do opt for medication may benefit from supplementing their treatment with therapy, as it can greatly enhance the effectiveness of psychiatric medications.

7. – I’m embarrassed by opening up –

As a therapist, your vulnerability is safe with me. Confidentiality is the foundation of our sessions and I am bound by law to protect your privacy. My goal is to empower and assist you in your journey towards growth and self-discovery, rather than judge or condemn you. Let’s work together to move towards positivity and proactivity.

8. – I know too much –

Do you ever feel like you know too much? It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking we have all the answers and can solve everything on our own. But sometimes, our problems require the help of an unbiased professional. The key to effective therapy isn’t just the therapist’s knowledge, but how they execute it. Even the simplest techniques can create powerful and lasting changes – but only if we’re willing to participate and commit to a positive outcome. So if you’re ready to make a change, remember: sometimes the best thing we can do is seek outside help.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, don’t dismiss the importance of self-care. I offer personalized therapy tailored to your unique situation, with tangible goals and progress tracking to help you achieve a fulfilling and successful experience. Let’s work together to prioritize your mental health and overall well-being.
