We all experience painful emotions during certain events in our life. The impact can vary in different ways. Finding your way back to a happy state of mind can be difficult. Grief, stress, depression, and performance pressure can all be examples of triggers for emotional pain.

Psychological counseling can help you recuperate from your pain and find a path back to inner peace and productivity.

Perhaps you are reluctant to seek counseling. This reluctance often stems from misconceptions associated with psychological counseling. These falsehoods prevent you from finding the relief you need to live a happy and fulfilling life. Lee Horton, Ph.D. has debunked two of the most widely believed myths about psychological counseling.

Myth 1: Only seriously disturbed individuals seek help from a psychologist.

You may only know of psychologists from what you have seen on television or the movies. While psychologists do see individuals who are suffering from severe mental health issues, they also see those who are simply trying to perform better in their career, wanting a better marriage, or seeking to better understand themselves .

Myth 2: Psychological counseling requires a massive investment of time and money.

While there are clients like Woody Allen who spend a lifetime in therapy, most clients only meet with me for a short period. This is because my work is focused and solution-oriented. While some of my clients find it beneficial to continue seeing me over a long course of time, most find their needs are met after just a few meetings.

You can benefit in the same way by preventing yourself from falling prey to these and other psychological counseling myths, by reaching out to Lee Horton, Ph.D.
