A therapist is there to help you help yourself.

  1. Help you identify the problem and, if that problem seems too big and intimidating, help you see that it's a problem that can be solved.
  2. Help you come up with a coping strategy or finding a path healthier state of mind.

A big hurdle for therapy is that you have to genuinely want to change.
