WHY DOES SEEING A THERAPIST WORK?
Psychology has taken many forms over the past couple of centuries, but there’s one aspect of it that has always stuck around: talking about your problems. It helps with individuals, family counseling, and couples therapy, and it’s been proven time and again to be one of the most useful tools we have.
Of course, trust must be established so that you can say what you need to. When you find a therapist, you can expect her to:
Be Impartial: Impartiality is one of the most important aspects of being a mental health counselor. At first you may think that it’s weird talking about your most difficult problems with someone who is a stranger. But not knowing much about you (at least the first time you walk in) allows us to see you in the rough and to be honest with you in a way that your best friends never could.
Be confidential: Speaking of friends, have you ever told someone a secret that they then proceeded to tell other people? With a therapist, you don’t have to worry about that. (The only reason we’d ever be compelled to break confidence is if we believed that you were in danger of harming yourself or someone else.) Because we’ve established this trust, you will be able to be more honest with yourself than ever before, and might find yourself admitting to problems that you didn’t even know were getting in your way.
Ask the right questions: When you walk in on the first day, we don’t have the answers to all your problems. In fact, we’re here to ask the questions so that you can find the answers yourself. And when you do it’s an incredible feeling.
