Getting the Most Out of Counseling
Therapy is a collaborative process between patient and counselor. As with any relationship, your best chance for success depends on the confidence and trust you place in your therapist. It’s important to be an active participant in your sessions, and don’t rush the process. It can take time to understand underlying issues and make progress, but when done right, it can make a world of difference.
An initial consultation helps determine whether psychotherapy will be of benefit. During this appointment, the therapist will ask questions about your medical and psychological history, family background and the present circumstances and/or symptoms that prompted your visit. This information allows the therapist to determine whether counseling is warranted and, if so, make a recommendation for treatment. If you decide to come to the Counseling Center, you and your therapist will then discuss and agree upon an appropriate treatment plan.
