It’s completely normal to feel unsure about starting therapy. Here are some common reasons:
1. People often feel uncomfortable with the idea of sharing private and upsetting things about themselves. Sex, in particular, is difficult to talk about for most people. But talking with a professional is often exactly what’s needed. Being non-judgmental and respectful are central to the work that we do.
2. Some people fear that sharing their problems will confirm their fears that they’re weak, broken, or incompetent. But most of us don’t feel bad about ourselves when we get help with our physical health, education, careers, fitness, etc. Sometimes we need the help of professionals. The same can be said about getting help for our psychological and sexual problems.
3. Affordability can be an issue for people without coverage, or coverage that’s capped at a certain amount. But how much are stress, loneliness, sleepless nights, or messed up relationships costing you? How much would it be worth to you to be able to start living the life you want? Having the sex life that you want?
