What to Expect From Your Counselling Journey

Starting counselling can feel daunting, but knowing what to expect can help to ease any anxiety you may be feeling. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Confidentiality:Your counsellor is bound by confidentiality. This means that anything you disclose in your sessions will remain private, unless they are concerned that you may harm yourself or others.
  • Openness:Counselling is a safe space. You can expect to feel supported and listened to without judgement. The more open and honest you are about your thoughts and feelings, the more beneficial your sessions will be.
  • Change:Counselling can help you to identify negative patterns and behaviours that may be holding you back. Be prepared to make changes in your life and work towards a happier, healthier you.
  • Time commitment:Counselling is not a quick fix. You may need to commit to weeks or even months of sessions in order to see progress. Be patient and trust the process.
  • Reactions:It is not uncommon to feel worse before you feel better. Sometimes bringing up past traumas or difficult emotions can be challenging. Your counsellor can help you to work through these feelings in a safe and supportive way.

Remember that counselling is a personal journey and every experience will be unique. With the right counsellor and the willingness to make changes, you can move towards a brighter future.
