I was recently asked this and, coincidentally, I came across this explanation by Moshe Talmon:

“The ultimate test for any form of therapy is whether or not a person can utilise or sustain the changes achieved in therapy.

“Therefore, the best time to come to therapy is when you, the client, are ready to do something about your life, and if need be, do it on your own.

“The key to success in therapy is timing. Are you ready for change now?”

 

One Response to “When is the Right Time for Therapy?”

  1. I do believe this. Having marriage help when I didn’t want the marriage to continue and having hypnotherapy (forced on me) I didn’t want it so no changes were made. Therapy to me is a bit like having an addition (drugs/alcohol/ etc.) When you are ready to make a change, therapy in one form or another will help, because you are the only person who can make and sustain the change…not your therapist, your partner or your parents, just you. If you don’t want to change or feel you don’t need to then it will never happen. Once again, thank you for your insights!!
