EXCUSES PEOPLE GIVE TO AVOID GOING TO TALK THERAPY (AND WHY THEY SHOULD REALLY RETHINK THEM)

If you’ve been reading the Invisible Scar articles for some time, you know that we are proponents of therapy. We don’t espouse a specific psychological approach nor do we care whether you choose a psychologist, psychiatrist, therapist, or counselor.

We do care about Invisible Scar readers, though, and so we repeat (often) the phrase please seek professional counseling.

Professional counseling is crucial for an adult survivor of emotional child abuse.

Yes, you can read books about emotional child abuse and healing (we highly recommend doing so), but you’re going to reach a point where you need to vent, to cry your heart out, to shout and rage in a safe environment, and to have someone there who can help you figure out how to navigate through the hurt and towards healing.

But you will find it almost impossible to do that solely on your own because you were raised by people who didn’t teach you those skills and who kept you in emotional captivity.

That is not your fault.

That is not your fault.

Once more: That is not your fault.

You didn’t choose to be abused as a child… but now, as an adult, you get to choose to get professional help and to learn new skills and behaviors needed for an emotionally healthy life.

REASONS, EXCUSES, AND MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT TALK THERAPY

Every day, we receive emails—some short as telegrams; others, sprawling tomes. Some readers seek very specific answers to their very specific questions, and we always urge those senders (and our readers) to seek professional help.

Judging by some of the responses to our recommendation of professional counseling, we thought to write a post tackling the different reasons/excuses/misconceptions people have regarding therapy.
