Why do people seek counseling?
come into counseling for many reasons. Some need to respond to unexpected changes in their lives, while others seek self-exploration and personal growth. When coping skills are overwhelmed by guilt,
doubt, anxiety, or despair, counseling can help. Counseling can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping for issues such as depression, anxiety, lack of confidence, relationship
troubles, unresolved childhood issues, bereavement, spiritual conflicts, stress management, body image issues, and creative blocks. People seeking counseling are willing to take responsibility for
their actions, work towards self-change and create
greater awareness in their lives.
What can I expect in a counseling session?
During sessions you are expected to talk about the primary concerns and issues in your life. A session lasts 50 minutes, but some people request longer sessions. Usually weekly sessions are best. Some people who are in crisis or extreme distress need more than one session per week, at least until the crisis passes. During the time between sessions it is beneficial to think about and process what was discussed. At times, you may be asked to take certain actions outside of the counseling sessions, such as reading a relevant book or keeping records. For counseling to "work," you must be an active participant, both in and outside of the sessions.
What benefits can I expect from working with a counselor?
A number of benefits are available from participating in counseling. Often it is helpful just to know that someone understands. Counseling can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. Many people find counseling to be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, and the hassles of daily life. The benefits you obtain from counseling depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. Some of the benefits available from counseling include:
What if I don't know what my goals are for counseling?
If you aren't sure what your goals are for counseling, your first task is to figure that out. It may take several sessions before a direction is clarified. During the course of counseling your goals may change. However, establishing a direction for your counseling will help you get the most out of the experience.
