No matter what our age there can come a time when the ways we have been dealing with difficulties no longer work and the pain of living becomes too much. This is often the point where people seek therapy; it is the point where things crack open and the ground is fertile for therapy to be profoundly effective.
But there is also no need to get to a point of desperation before deciding to give therapy a try. The experience of working with a therapist who can help you understand yourself in a new and broader way is invaluable at any stage of life. The experience of expressing yourself and your feelings in a safe place is deeply healing and can help you find your true self and create a life that is an expression of that.
