What is Counselling
This seems like an easy question to ask and in some ways it is.
Counselling/Therapy is a process in which people engage with to get to understand themselves or their lives and then to make choices in order to changes in that life.
The difficulty comes from choosing which type of counselling you would like to engage with to receive the right connection for you, dependant on how you work your world and the goals you would like to achieve will depend on who you choose.
If you’re not aware there are many types of counselling modalities which will engage in many ways and dependant on what you want to work with and how easy you can work things out for yourself will depend on which type of counselling suits you best. For example if you are a self-actualising person, you can usually sort things out without much of an interaction with others, then you may favour person centred counselling as this provides structure but small amounts of intervention. If you’re unable to find the reason for why your life is going wrong but know it is from your past negative incidences then you may favour psycho-dynamic counselling, looking at how the past interacts with the present.
Understanding the type of counselling the Therapist uses will help you to understand which Therapist may be more beneficial for you to engage with. Also the length of time you might want to engage with therapy will depend on who you choose as some practitioners can see you weekly for many years and others do short intervention work. An Integrative Therapist will use many forms of engaging theory in order to choose which one would be more appropriate for you, this may be beneficial if you are not sure of what you want. In talking to the Therapist these are the questions you need to ask them, how they work? What theory base do they use? What is the frequency of their sessions etc etc this then will build a picture of the person and if there are able not only to help you but also if they feel like the right person for you to work with, it is after all a relationship that we as Counsellors/Therapists enter into with you so you need to be able to trust us with your world.
Therapy can be very expensive so entering into it with a full awareness of what you and the therapist expects of each other, the contract, will make your journey more appropriate and beneficial.
