There is a stigma attached to therapy that stems from the early days of counseling services where those who needed therapy were portrayed as people with something wrong with them. However, nowadays we all know counseling is for everyone to deal with the stresses of their day, their lives, and their past.

3 TIPS TO TALK ABOUT THERAPY
- Choose a comfortable setting. Telling others you are in therapy can create anxiety. After all, how will they react? Choose a setting that is comfortable and relaxing, such as a coffee shop. Don’t just blurt it out while standing in line at the grocery store.
- Make it private. It seems everyone these days has a phone that is recording, or ears that are listening. Make sure you have assurance that your conversation is private.
- Have enough time. Telling someone you’re in therapy when they aren’t expecting it will probably have many questions arise. Make sure you set aside some time to talk with that person after your announcement.
