7 Myths About Therapy That Just Aren’t True

I had a pretty tough therapy session this week because I just have a lot going on right now. Afterwards, I was emotionally drained and just totally exhausted. I didn’t want to talk to anyone or do anything. One of my friends asked me why I kept going to therapy if it made me feel that way. I explained that therapy is a process and not every session is rainbows and butterflies. She didn’t understand, but then again, she’s never been in therapy.

It got me thinking about the misconceptions that people still have about therapy and mental health. Since it’s Mental Health Month, I figured it was a good time to debunk some myths about therapy. It’s not for “crazy” people, and it’s not some made up thing. Therapy helps millions of people, and we need to stop acting like it’s taboo. If you’re in therapy, great! If not, that’s great too!

Check out these therapy myths you need to stop believing right now:
