No matter how old you are, there are going to be situations in life that are hard to deal with on your own. You may have more wisdom and skills at your disposal as you get older, but even then, some things are just difficult to handle. Many adults turn to therapy when they are having trouble coping with everyday life — family conflicts, relationships with friends and peers, or work-related stress. They may also be having difficulty with inner turmoil, such as generalized anxiety or depression. Still others may be struggling with anger issues, self-doubt, grief, life transitions, parenting difficulties or cross-cultural issues. These concerns can lead to overwhelming stress. Talking to a skilled therapist can be the most effective means of confronting one’s own problems.

Psychotherapy for adults can be a productive means not only of resolving particular issues, but of becoming more self-aware, and therefore exerting more control over, personal thought processes or behavior patterns that work against leading a fulfilling life. It is also significant to delve into childhood experiences in order to clarify present emotional reactions and behavior. Learning mindfulness will also teach how to enjoy the present moment and experience inner peace.

The therapist’s goal is to help the adult patient explore his or her own thoughts, emotional reactions and behavior patterns that may be contributing to present difficulties. This increased self-awareness can come through discussion and analysis of not only present experiences, but childhood and adolescent experiences that, often unconsciously, underlie formative ideas and behaviors. Therapy can help provide understanding, relief, resilience, and ways of coping. It can give you a plan of action for dealing with life’s problems. Ultimately, adult therapy can help a person gain self-love, have healthy relationships and be happier.
