An investment, according to Investopedia, is “an asset or item that is purchased with the hope that it will generate income or appreciate in the future.”
Therapy is an investment in yourself and your mental health.
The future returns are your ability to live in the present, to fulfill your potential, and, ultimately, to find happiness.
Isn’t therapy only for damaged people?
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Psychotherapy and counseling work by creating awareness of your feelings, by helping you to understanding your past, by teaching you communication skills, and by liberating you from toxic patterns and relationships so that you can be in charge of your own life.
If you come to therapy during a life crisis or when your mental health is in danger of becoming a little fragile, your therapist will spend the initial sessions stabilizing your condition so that you can then do the positive work of self-awareness and learning new skills.
If you enter therapy as a long-term investment in your future, you can start developing your skills straightaway.
What do I need to invest?
What can I expect?
Therapy is a process. In the counseling sessions, your therapist works together with you by asking you questions, charting your path so far, and engaging with both your obstacles and your strengths.If you invest time and focus, your life will change.
Many clients report remarkable insights even in the first session – the therapist provides different perspectives on your story, makes connections you yourself cannot see, and empowers you with a new, hopeful outlook.
More profound changes in how you see yourself and how you deal with the world around you will happen as you progress.
You will acquire tools to make the changes you want, and to sustain them.
How long will the effects of therapy last?
For the rest of your life.
By exploring your past and how it has shaped you, you can eventually leave it where it belongs: in your memories.
By understanding your goals and dreams, you will be able to express and find what you really want. And you will be able to repeat that process of insight when your circumstances change.
By improving your self-image and dealing with your doubts and fears, you will be able to accept yourself and be much more at peace.
Of course, there will still be conflicts, obstacles in your path, and complicated relationships. There will be disappointments, sickness, and misunderstandings.
But when you know who you are and what you want, you will be resilient enough to deal with whatever life throws at you in a much better way. Therapy will help you:

What are you willing to invest in finding and keeping a good partner?
And what kind of investment are you willing to make so that your life is truly your own?
