5 Reasons Successful People Seek Therapy

For some reason there tends to be a bad connotation with the word therapy. Some people tend to think that therapy is only needed for extreme cases. People also don't think that those who are highly successful need therapy. Just because some have achieved a lot does not mean they aren't capable of having depression or any other mental issues. Amy Morin, a psychotherapist and contributor writer for the Huffington Post says that there are five main reasons a successful person would want to go to therapy. 

  1. Imposter Syndrome
  2. The hidden reason behind their drive
  3. Fear of losing everything
  4. It's lonely at the top
  5. Guilt that stems from success
