Why does therapy cost so much?
Therapy is not as expensive as people think of it to be. Most therapy sessions cost anywhere between what you would spend on a night out with friends or the bill of an average restaurant visit.
Considering the benefits, therapy can be a lasting investment in yourself for improving your life. You learn healthy ways to cope with your issues, process your trauma and grief, improve relationships, learn how to achieve goals and receive complete focus, attention and commitment from a highly trained expert.
You also have to consider therapists from their perspective. They have to manage the other overhead expenses of their business and deliver an exceptional amount of passion and energy. To provide a quality service to clients, a therapist in private practice only works with an average of 20 clients per week.
