I  do not but I have relatives who have seen them. It helped them immensely. I don't belivev my cousin would have seen her 20th birthday if she didn't get help. She is now in her 40s and is the mother of two gfeat kids.

Since I left home many years ago, I've had therapy at different times in my life. When I get really depressed and can't pull myself out of it, I go talk to someone. They have tools to help me get past the depression. I've had a variety of things that I needed to work on, due to my upbringing. Working with a trained therapist goes a long way to getting your head on straight.

I'm not currently in therapy, but will go if there is something that I need help working on or I hit a spell of depression and can't get myself out of it.

There is nothing shameful about talking to someone that's trained to deal with problems. They can give you tools and techniques for dealing with all manner of issues. If you stay silent, it only reinforces your belief that you're not worth working on.

It may take a couple of times meeting with someone to determine if their personality will fit with yours. They are people, same as you and me. If one doesn't work, try someone else.

I did years ago .... Had a bout of agoraphobia after the death of my mother and husband.  It was very helpful for me.

As one with a degree in this area, I do have to say that therapy really does work but only if one really wants change and enters with an open mind and heart otherwise it doesn't.  Usually having someone who is a great listener works wonders and drugs are not always the answer in my opinion
