The financial cost of counseling – Why it’s worth investing in yourself

One of the most common excuses that is often used for skipping out on therapy is the amount of time and money it will take to fully commit. Though both of these items are big factors to consider, they aren’t the only ones. The positive outcomes far outweigh the negative aspects of counseling. We’ve put together a list of things to remember when you’re considering counseling and making your mental health a priority.

Counseling shouldn’t be perceived as a ‘luxury’.

With insurance, counseling can be incredibly affordable. Think of it this way... If you're willing to spend $150 on a haircut that makes you feel good about your appearance, why wouldn’t you spend the same amount on a counseling session that helps you increase your self-worth, self-confidence, and mental clarity?

 

Investing in counseling is investing in every aspect of your life.

Counseling will help you with your relationships, your job, school, etc. Anything that requires your time and effort could be positively impacted when you attend counseling. The benefits are unlimited. When your mental health is changing for the better, you begin to see things differently. You will have more patience with relationships and, more importantly, yourself.

Equip yourself with life skills that never expire.

Whether you attend therapy once a week or once every few months, the life skills that are taught in each session have the ability to be used indefinitely. Self-care and coping mechanisms are just a few tools that are taught in each session. The application of these newfound skills and awareness can be applied to all areas of your life (ex. parenting, relationships, career, politics, creative pursuits and caring for the environment). This aspect of therapy is priceless.

Mental health is just as important as physical health.

There is often a sense of urgency involved when it comes to finding a solution for a physical problem, moreso than a mental one. We as a society are quick to put our mental health on the back burner, when in fact our mental health is just as important as our physical health. When we take care of our mind, our physical health improves as well. Studies have shown that a healthy mind leads to an overall healthier body.
