Therapy can be expensive. But I have always thought of it as a vital part of my own self-care. At times I have gone without some things in order to prioritise my mental health, and it has always paid off.
I guess, growing up in housing commission, I know I can be happy in any house or with any car, or I can be unhappy in any house and with any car. It is not the stuff that is important to me, it never has been. It has always been about the quality of relationships and my own internal state of mind.
I never take my mental health for granted. Every day I wake up feeling wonderful, I feel grateful. For me, mental health is one of the most important things and is something I have invested heavily in, for myself and to pass on to others.
But, what happens when you really can’t afford therapy? I was thinking about this today and created this resource for you all that I hope is helpful.
Please let me know of any resources in your country or other ideas for reduced-rate therapy.
Much love, Jen
