"I think it is getting better and there is less stigma seeing a therapist now. It depends on your location though, there are still some parts of the world where therapy is still taboo. Some people think that seeing a therapist means that you're 'crazy,' but this is not actually what therapy is about," British psychotherapist Silva Neves told Bored Panda. "Therapy is a confidential and private space where you can get help from a professional with anything that bothers you, from your work problems, relationship issues, or other psychological problems such as post-trauma stress, depression, and anxiety."
"Those things are actually very common and many people struggle with these things, it doesn't mean they're 'crazy.' Seeing a therapist when you have emotional struggles should be as normal as seeing your doctor when you have a physical problem. But at the moment, our society hasn't normalized therapy yet. It is changing with famous people talking about the benefits of therapy such as Lady Gaga and Prince Harry," Neves added.
