Counselling…? Me? A Guide to the Talking Therapies
About the Book
Although exact figures are hard to come by, statistical surveys suggest that as many as one in four of us in Britain suffer mental distress at some time in our lives. This is reflected in the increasing numbers who turn to counselling for help. But for the majority of people considering this approach there is the added concern of not knowing what they might be letting themselves in for. How does this form of therapy work, and why? How do they choose a counsellor? What qualifications should the therapist have? What happens in a counselling session? How long does it take? What sort of results can they expect? When does it end?
Without knowing the answers to questions like these, going for counselling is a something of a leap into the unknown; not an ideal situation for someone who may already be under considerable stress. As a consequence, many who could benefit from counselling may hold back and so delay dealing with their difficulties.
This book sets out to address the most frequently asked questions about counselling to help readers decide whether this form of therapy could be helpful to them. Through an understanding of the processes involved, what they should expect from a counsellor, and the part they will need to play, they should be better placed to make an informed decision about the best course to take.
