How To Find Good Counseling

By Dave Lloyd

Counseling is a profession that aims to help people. It is one that the practitioner enters into knowing that they get the most out of making the lives of those they work with better. And in order to find the type of counseling that works best for you, it is critical that you understand this - the counseling professional you choose is there to serve you, first and foremost.

So as you evaluate counseling, specifically mental health counseling like marriage counseling, couples counseling, grief counseling or, be sure you know what you want.

It's best to ask yourself questions like

Why am I considering counseling?

What do I hope to get out of it?

What am I willing to put into counseling in order to see a direct benefit?

What is the most pressing issue I want to deal with, and what are other issues that may come up?

As you consider counseling then, keep these questions in mind. Also, it helps to know the background of the counseling professional you're considering. For example, each mental health professional is required to obtain a graduate degree and then a specific number of internship hours as required by their state licensing board, in order to get certified to practice in your state. Beyond that, most mental health counselors specialize in a specific area - marriage counseling and grief counseling are two of the common specialties.

Most important above all is to ask yourself whether you're really ready for counseling. It's not something everyone is excited about and can challenge a person's understanding of themselves. And if it's marriage counseling you're considering, it's rare that there's a mutual commitment between spouses to attend counseling sessions. So talk things through with your loved one first and get them on board.

The search for counseling help is one that could directly benefit your life. Use this information to prepare yourself better for the type of counseling you need.
