Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
Studies have show that open and honest feedback on a regular basis improves communication and improves the experience of therapy. I often ask clients at the end of a session about their experience. I truly want to know if the session was helpful or what would have made it better. In my experience, collaboration contributes to a positive experience of therapy, and positive outcomes in peoples' lives. So please, tell me what you think. I truly want to know.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
If you are concerned about therapy, here are some things to keep in mind:
Talk to your counselor about any questions you have. It's important to establish a good rapport with your counselor, but remember, not every counselor is right for every client. Since you are the expert in your own life, you can decide which counselor is right for you. Or, if you would like something different from your counselor, please ask. Counseling is a collaborative process that takes time, just as the challenges we face developed over the course of time.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
I believe in a strength-based approach to counseling. Each of us has our strong points and our not so strong points. I can help you identify what your strengths are, and use them to approach challenges. In my experience, therapy works well when we can identify what is working in your life and why, and then try to approach what you would like to change utilizing your inherent strengths. In my view, you are not weak. Rather you are strong and capable. And remember, we all need help now and then, myself included.
