Q. What is the point of therapy if I don’t have childhood trauma?

Therapy often simply puts the light on.  The difference between being in a dark room and not knowing what is in there with you, and having the lights on and being able to name things.  Sometimes therapy can nurture you; give you a comforting supporting parent’s voice that you have not had and help you internalize that voice.  Sometimes it means being less alone on the journey and being seen.  Your thoughts will be clearer and you’ll know yourself better. As a result, you’ll feel stronger and more resilient.
