You may wonder, "So what is trauma therapy really like?"
Many people come to therapy because change is hard. Period. They may realize that current habits (like certain behaviors or thoughts) aren't helping them live the life they want to live. It is okay to want change, even though it may feel uncomfortable.
It may be helpful to find a therapist who "gets you" and understands your goals. Successful therapy includes an alliance between the client and provider where the exploration of self happens in a judgement-free space. Life's ups and downs are hard enough to process and you don't have to do that alone.
To heal means to grow. Even for issues that seem small or insignificant, sometimes even small changes make a great impact on overall quality of life.
