Does Therapy Create Selfishness?

A few years ago I had a conversation with someone about therapy that stuck with me. The point they made was that therapy creates selfishness in people. Although I disagree, I think there is a valid and important point that strikes a chord with many people which requires clarification.

Often someone will go to therapy and after some time they will begin focusing more on their own needs, wants, and desires. For them, its freeing, they feel empowered to be themselves. However, for those that live with them, its often perceived as selfishness, especially when the therapy client is putting their own needs ahead of others.
