the sentiment is ubiquitous: We all need therapy. You’ll find article after article after article that says this explicitly. The media champion the notion daily.A lot of people say that therapy is generally beneficial, as if it good for everyone. It is not.
It should be obvious that it is harmful to some people, in some cases.
I suspect that it is harmful in most cases, if not all cases. I have never known it to benefit anyone. There are studies by psychologists that claim to show some benefit to what they do, but the evidence is very weak. The alleged benefits are usually for some narrowly focused cognitive behavioral therapy, or something like that. Other types of treatments are much less effective.
