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!!

Yet most of us pay only lip-service to the values of the communities we belong to, doing little or nothing to help them flourish.

On the other hand, there are those who are able to bring some passion to the game. They explore what they think and feel about who they are, where they fit in the grand scheme of things, their purpose, and what it all means to them.

Thermometers and Thermostats

Which one are you? A thermometer measures the ambient temperature of its milieu. It checks and reports. A thermostat on the other hand responds to its environment. It also checks, but then it makes little adjustments… it actually influences the environment. You might say that a thermometer is a rather passive receptor, and a thermostat […]
