Misconceptions about counseling

  • I don’t experience mental illness. Counseling isn’t limited to people with mental illness. Everyone needs guidance every once in a while. 

  • I don’t have time. Not everyone requires lengthy counseling. Maybe you only need a few sessions. You can meet every week or once a month. Online counseling is an option for people who don’t have a counselor nearby.

  • I don’t have the money. Counseling is more affordable than ever. Some therapists work according to a sliding scale based on income. Programs are available to uninsured patients. Most insurance plans cover counseling.

  • I tried it before, and it didn’t help. There may be several reasons counseling didn’t work for you. Your therapist may not have been a good fit. Maybe the type of therapy wasn’t effective for you. One bad experience doesn’t have to color every counseling session.
