Is seeing a therapist for moderate depression like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut?

Not at all. I’m going to let you in on a little known secret about therapy: you don’t have to be depressed, anxious or mentally ill in anyway to see one,

Therapy is often about self-exploration, understanding your unconscious processes, and generally becoming a better version of you.

We often go through life on auto pilot, accepting a particular path, without understanding why. If someone asked, they might get a, “that’s just how it is.” Or “I don’t know how else I’d do things.”

A large part of who we are is developed at an age that often predates our earliest memories. We internalize the seeds of our self-identity, and adapt to our environment by behaving and thinking in certain ways that make sense at the time. The problem is that what makes sense when we are 2 or 3 or 4 years old, rarely applies when we are 20, or 30, or 40+.

Therapy can be used as a way to become the author of your own life, as opposed to playing a part in someone else’s script.
