Top 3 Excuses People Use to Avoid Family Counseling, Canandaigua, New York

Making the decision to see a therapist is never easy. If you are trying to seek help for you and your loved ones through family counseling, you might be hearing a variety of reasons they don’t want to go. The professionals at Canandaigua Lake Counseling have helped residents in New York work through personal family issues for over 20 years.

Here, the highly trained therapists share the top three excuses people use to avoid family counseling:

  • I Don’t Need a Therapist: It’s quite common for people to believe they don’t need to see someone, as there is still a stigma with therapy and it’s often viewed as something only people with serious psychological issues need. However, a counselor can help you confront family issues while recommending methods you can practice at home to deal with them.
  • family counselingI Don’t Have the Time: Many feel like they don’t have the time to attend family counseling. However, if you’re having trouble finding the time to work out your family issues, it may be a sign that your family isn’t high enough on your list of priorities. Find a counselor who can accommodate your schedule, even if it means going during late hours or on the weekends.
  • I Don’t See the Point: While talking to someone won’t fix the root of your family problems overnight, addressing the issues is an important place to start. There are many benefits to seeking family counseling, including the ability to express your feelings and thoughts, reducing stress, and helping you to understand the ones you love.
