The Secret Psychiatrist

LAUGHING THERAPY

When we think of therapy, what pops into our head? Before becoming a psychiatrist, I would think of a stereotypical image of an American Freudian counselor analysing a patient lying on a couch. Of course, this does indeed still happen, and I myself perform psychotherapy. I used to think of it as something for those suffering mental health or those with relationship problems. However, as we know that is not the case. You can have mental health, or relationship problems, but therapy does not mean you have to fit in a category. Anyone can do therapy, and we do it without thinking.
