THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT THERAPY
What is therapy session like?It is a safe space where the discussed concerns are kept confidential and you gain an expert support. Counselling is not advice giving or guidance, but counsellors provide right direction and help you towards growth and positivity. It is an open and honest communication process, where best suited evidence based practices are applied.
What kind of training do you as a professional counsellor have?Specialisation in counselling psychology (Masters degree) along with 300 hours of supervised work is must. Since India does not have licensure exams, make sure you choose a counsellor with psychology background and practical experience.
Why is it better to work with a counsellor than to work things out on your own?Counsellors are experts in helping people with personal issues that are keeping them from being happy, healthy, and moving forward. It is much easier to deal with these issues with an expert than to do it alone. Counsellors are trained and they posses skills to help you deal with various concerns.
Does it mean there’s something “wrong” with you if you see a counsellor?When one decides to see a counsellor, they are uncomfortable with something or are struggling with a major life transition. Counsellors may view people as being stuck, in need of new skills, or in need of growth, but they never view people as having something “wrong” with them. Counsellors DO NOT judge you.
How long will I have to be in counselling?There is no magic number or formula to determine how long it may take. During your initial intake assessment and sessions, you and your therapist will have a conversation around making a guess of number of sessions in which your needs are best met. Although, it takes around 6 to 7 sessions minimum.
When will I start to feel better?Relief may come from a variety of sources, including making changes in your thoughts, behaviors, relationships, and choices, and that may take time to achieve. However, many clients report that counselling can be helpful even after the first session. This may be because of the relief that comes from deciding to seek help, or an opportunity to speak about problems for the first time with someone who is impartial and non-judgmental.
