Why Psychotherapy is Important
According to the American Psychological Association, "Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and a psychologist or psychiatrist. Grounded in dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, neutral and nonjudgmental. You and your psychologist will work together to identify and change the thought and behavior patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best.
By the time you’re done, you will not only have solved the problem that brought you in, but you will have learned new skills so you can better cope with whatever challenges arise in the future."
The reason why you can't just share your feelings and concerns with your friends or members of the family without having their bias towards your thought patterns is because they have a stake on you. Psychiatrists don't because what they desire is for you to get better and manage your conditions. So get help and experience psychotherapy with a licensed medical practitioner.
