Therapy begins with a structured relationship between client and therapist based on mutual trust and respect. It may be used by some to overcome a specific problem and/or for the purpose of overall emotional growth and healing.
While in therapy a person seeks to achieve a variety of goals. Although goals are unique to each individual, and may change while in therapy, they quite often can be summarized within these broad areas:
- Make changes in your life leading to increased self-esteem and self-confidence
- Learn how to better identify, understand, and manage emotions
- Find new ways to cope with and relieve stress and anxiety
- Improve communication skills
- Increase satisfaction and intimacy in relationships
- Learn to set and maintain healthy boundaries
- Overcome self-destructive or self-sabotaging behaviors
- Learn creative problem-solving
- Learn to trust yourself in relationships, work, and decision-making
- Manage a crisis and work through painful events, including prior or ongoing trauma
- Receive support through a grieving process

Work to achieve your goals
Some may wish to engage in a process of self-discovery, seek to understand the meaning of their symptoms and behavior patterns, or revisit old childhood wounds to emerge with an undistorted, realistic, and more compassionate sense of selfhood. Others may wish to address spiritual issues woven into their quest to make meaning out of the experiences in their lives.
Therapy may be utilized in various modes: individually, as a couple for relationship issues, as a family, or in a group. Psychotherapy has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for psychological problems or problems of everyday life.
