People have several questions when it comes to taking counseling, especially for the first time. I have tried to answer some queries here to help you feel comfortable with the idea of therapy and counseling.

  • Is what I say during counseling sessions kept confidential?
    Absolutely. Anything discussed between the counsellor and you never goes out to anyone whatsoever. However, in cases where there is a threat to the client’s life, an appropriate decision may be taken.
  • What can I expect from my first session [Discovery Session]?
    This is a session wherein both the client as well as the psychologist get to know each other. The problem is understood, and rules / guidelines of counselling are laid down. For better diagnosis and solutions, complete honesty on the part of the coachee is expected here.
  • How long will be the counseling sessions?
    This entirely depends on the severity of the problem, and the effort the coachee puts in to implement the changes suggested by the psychologist. However, a minimum of six to eight sessions is what we need to see the changes.
  • How will I know if you are the right therapist for me?
    We suggest you refer to this article.
  • What can I expect from Counselling?
    A detailed analysis of what went wrong where, and how to bring about the changes to rectify it. Please note, rectifications are for the coachee and it is not advisable to think that counselling will bring about any changes in the people around.
  • How often will we meet?
    Ideally, we start with two sessions in 7/10 days. However, depending upon the severity of the problem this can be relaxed to once a week. Gradually as things improve, the gap in sessions in increased till the case is gradually closed.
  • Are there any issues or types of clients that you DON’T work with?
    If a person is not willing to work on himself / herself and rests the entire responsibility of bringing about the changes on the counsellor, the chances of success are meagre.
