Sometimes, our struggles can be resolved by taking better care of ourselves or seeking support from a family member or friend. But there may be times when these steps don't resolve the problem. When this happens, we encourage seeking support from a therapist.
Counselling is encouraged when your symptoms or problems are distressing and are negatively affecting your personal, occupational, social or academic functioning.
Your therapist will explore your goals for counselling and what you hope to get out of your work together. They will establish what kinds of needs or issues you’d like to address in your sessions together as well as, what you’ve done to manage your mental health in the past. They’ll want to talk through what has and has not worked for you, and obtain an understanding of how best to support you.
This is a reasonable question and challenging to predict. Research indicates that the duration of counselling is variable. Depending on your specific needs and goals, counselling can be short-term, for specific issues, or longer-term, to deal with more longstanding complex issues. Counselling is a collaborative process, and your progress and goals will be discussed during the course of treatment.
