What is therapy and counselling? Counselling offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things.
How will counselling make me feel? Therapy is a very personal process. Sometimes it is necessary to talk about painful feelings or difficult decisions in the short term, so you may go through a period of feeling worse when you start but better in the long-run.
If you do experience a period of feeling worse, talk to your therapist about it to ensure you get the best out of your therapy.
Will I feel better straight away? Usually it will take a number of counselling sessions before therapy starts to make a difference.
Does counselling work for everybody? Often counselling can help everyone in some way. It depends how long you keep going as it’s a process that peels back layers to find the hidden truth.
Will I be able to have counselling that understands my cultural background? Therapists come from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures. It should be possible to find an appropriate therapist for your needs.
Is all counselling the same? No. There are different methods and approaches to therapy, and your chosen therapist will be able to talk to you about their particular method or approach. Its best to have a telephone conversation first to get a feel for a person and see if you can open and share yourself to them. Otherwise, a first meeting will definitely tell you if you can establish a connection with the therapist or not.
What types of counselling are there? There are many different Types of therapy available. However, in general, research shows that the relationship with your therapist or counsellor is more important than the method they use.
Your choice of type of therapy may be limited depending on where you access it. If you have a preference over the type of therapy, you may choose to seek a private therapist.
