    Do you think a plain lazy and procrastinating person needs therapy to fix his/her life.

    The best therapy for that is a kick up the arse.  Am I allowed to say arse on here?

    Possibly if there is a reason behind the procrastination or laziness. This could be low self-esteem or depression. It really depends, some people are just plainl azy and therefore need a fire under there butt. But for others, if it's a new thing they may need counseling.

    If you have not exactly a fear or going outside but you have a strong desire just to stay in the comfort of your living space then this is not a massive problem. habits like these can be made just by not seeing people or going out for a while even if you occassionally see people. What is recommended is that you go out and do stuff with or just see a good friend, someone you can trust or someone who is calm or on the same wavelength of you. This will give you a reason to get up in the morning and gradually increase your want and need to go out and see people. This idea may seem stupid but it is definitely known to help

    LoL!  No, it doesn't call for therapy, it just causes for Motivation.  Maybe if you just put the motivation in the mix (bills, family, etc)

    No therapy I don't think but a lot more ambition and strive for the goals which I'm sure they have.Being like that they will never get anywhere in life but where they are now.

    I don't think the answer to this question is really as simple as yes or no, because there are no specifics.  It depends whether or not the lazy person is happy as they are - if their laziness is infuriating to other people with, but the lazy person is happy within themselves, then maybe other people need to just mind their own business.  However, if that laziness means that other people have to pick up some of the lazy person's work, then that's not on, and someone needs to have strong words with the lazy person and tell them to pull their finger out!  If the lazy person doesn't want to be lazy, but is in some kind of depression or rut, then perhaps therapy of some kind would be a good idea, to allow them to find a way to fix their problems.  Or it could be down to bad diet or lack of exercise, or both - in which case, good friends might offer support and help to combat these problems.

    I'm pretty lazy myself, but I try to do things to motivate myself, and I see it as my own responsibility, but not everyone is able to do that - some people need help to see a way out.

    Two possible reasons for this behavior. One is they are of low self-esteem and/or depressed and they have withdrawn from possible failure.
    Find out what they are good at and give them an opportunity-small to begin with- to apply their skill/talent and have some success. Then give a bit more of a challenge and ask for feedback from them to find out if they still enjoy what they are doing. If they enjoy what they are doing, they will stick with it.
    The other reason could just be a lack of self-motivation. This could be corrected by removing anything that would keep them from applying themselves to receive what it is they want.
    This should be taken away, not the necessities, only the wants.
    Hope this helps.
