Many of life’s experiences are specific to women; while some can be incredibly rewarding, others can bring with them challenges that are not easily overcome. Processing some of these issues ourselves is difficult enough, to say nothing of being understood by the opposite gender! Recent statistics show that 1 out of 8 women will experience depression during their lifetime, but depression is only one issue among many that may cross a woman’s path. The following list is just a brief glimpse of the issues a woman may find herself facing:
- Low Self Esteem
- Post Partum Depression
- “Empty Nest” issues
- Domestic Violence or Abuse
- PTSD related to Past Abuse or Sexual Assault
Most of these issues are very personal, and can be very painful and frightening. Frequently, they bring with them a deep sense of shame and the feeling that nobody else understands. Well-meaning family and friends may try to help, but misunderstand and say things like, “You just have to get over it and move on.” During these times, it is absolutely vital to have someone to listen, validate your concerns, and support you – someone who understands what you’re facing.
You’re not alone.
Taking the step forward to seek guidance and help from a highly experienced, specifically trained therapist can be of great benefit to you.
