Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO I KNOW WHEN IT IS TIME TO SEE A THERAPIST?
Many individuals and couples wait until circumstances exceed their ability to cope before they come to counseling. While that is certainly an indicator that it’s time to come to counseling, you don’t have to wait until that point. In fact, the length of time in treatment can be considerably shorter when you come in to work on things prior to a crisis. Here are some questions to ask yourself when considering if counseling is for you. 1) Are my relationships how I would like for them to be? 2) Am I satisfied with my life and the direction of my life? 3) Do I know who I am and like who I am? If you answer no to any of these questions, counseling may be right for you.
WHY DO I NEED A THERAPIST? CAN’T I JUST TALK MY FAMILY OR FRIENDS?
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THERAPY?
The benefits of therapy have been demonstrated in numerous studies. In a review by Martin Seligman he found that: Psychotherapy produced positive effects in 92% of respondents. The longer people stayed in therapy, the better their results. People that were active in therapy did better than those that were passive. People that actively engaged by being open, asking questions, and following up did better. For most psychological conditions, people in therapy alone did as well as people who had medication plus therapy. Respondents who stayed in therapy only until insurance coverage allowed did worse than those who stayed until their concerns resolved.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF YOU ARE THE RIGHT THERAPIST FOR ME?
You really need to meet with your therapist to get a good idea of what they are like as a person and as a professional. At your first meeting, you should keep these questions in mind: How easy is it to talk to my therapist? Do they seem like somebody I could trust? Is my therapist really listening to me? Do they seem to know what they are doing? Do they seem confident and competent? Do I feel comfortable with them? Could I ever show this person the deepest, ugliest parts of myself? Do they seem to have the capacity to handle me? Mostly, “Do I like this person?”
