The benefits of therapy have been demonstrated by scientists in hundreds of well-designed research studies. People who are depressed may find their mood lifting. Others may no longer feel afraid, angry, or anxious. In therapy, people have a chance to talk through their concerns until their feelings are relieved or the problems are resolved. Clients’ relationships and coping skills may improve greatly. They may get more satisfaction out of social and family relationships. Their personal goals and values often become clearer. They may grow in many directions in their relationships, work, schooling, and in their ability to enjoy their lives.
