What is counseling or therapy about? Can talking really help me to feel better? You can't change the
past, you know...
People come to counseling for many reasons. Some are in crisis, some are suffering from emotional
distress, some seek to improve their experience of life, or to improve a relationship. Maybe there is a
tough decision to be made. Many people want to reduce their stress and enjoy life more. Others are
looking for a private and supportive place to talk through problems, with a good listener who has
some training, life experience, and is impartial.
Some may be questioning the values and goals they have grown up with, and wondering if it really fits
for their life anymore. Maybe it's time for growth and change.
Sometimes counseling is difficult, especially when exploring painful subjects. Usually this is followed
by relief, and new understandings.
Research has shown that for most people, counseling is helpful. Especially if you find a counselor that
you feel comfortable working with....let's see if we are a 'good fit' to work together to
improve your experience of life.
