Do you actually have to be in crisis before you see a therapist? No.
But when you are so distressed you notice your relationships are affected, or work or family, it may be the right time for you to seek help.
You may already have heard of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). It is empirically supported treatments that aim to uncover your challenging thinking patterns, often accompanying distress.
Your feelings are a direct extension of your thoughts; how you think determines how you feel. The aim of cognitive-behavioral interventions is to challenge and eventually change problematic thoughts to allow you to lead a more productive and happier life.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a form of cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) that helps people who find it extremely difficult to manage their emotions, particularly people with self-injury and/or suicidal tendencies.
DBT helps you:
- - identify and manage your emotions
- - successfully cope with stress without making impulsive or destructive choices
- - maintain healthy, balanced relationships while having your own needs met
- - focus in the “here and now.”
