A friend in need of therapy is a friend indeed

Trying to convince a friend to see a therapist to deal with some recent emotional issues and having difficulties being a good advocate because she doesn't feel like she 'needs' it.

A friend is on the fence regarding whether to go see a therapist. She was recently blindsided by a now former friend/former coworker's behavior. She says she doesn't feel like she 'needs' the therapy and asked me to 'promote' it to her to get over the fence she's on. She looked online already and found a therapist she thought might be able to help her. She just can't get enough motivation to call and schedule an appointment because of her lack of 'need'.
What are some things I can tell her she'd get out of therapy in at least the short term and motivate her to go?
