A piece on a realisation I had recently that my therapy had embedded newer, healthier behaviours into my automatic behavioural response system.
How I Knew My Therapy Was Working: The Day I Used Self-Care Instead of Self-Harm. Originally published on this blog under the title “I Did Self-Care When Life Got Tough“.
“So to anyone out there struggling and wondering if therapy might help, I say, yes! Go for it. I had no idea I could change, but I have and I couldn’t have done it without DBT and an incredibly committed individual therapist. Therapy changed my life and I get better every day.”
Therapy is damn hard work, but it’s worth it.
If you find a good fit with your therapist, and the right type of therapy for you, it really does work!
I’m living proof!! There is hope!
