It might be surprising to people, but many clients in therapy are not warranted a mental health diagnosis. Trying therapy early or when life gets sticky, prevents situations turning into serious mental health issues.

People with and without a mental health illness can enjoy therapy. We always say at Innovative Direction https://www.pensacolacounseling.comthat our brain is a muscle that needs work, just like the rest of our body. If we only work on our thoughts/mind here and there, we won’t see or feel much change. Sometimes we don’t even know how to change and that is where a great therapist comes in.

We like to compare it to the gym at Innovative Direction. If you only go to therapy or take care of your mind once in a while. you won’t see much results. It is the same with going to the gym or working out.  If we only go to the gym or workout once a month our bodies will do very little changing as well.

Having a therapist is like having a trainer, it keeps you motivated and helps with accountability. Its also quite nice to have your own person to help you through your goals!
