How to Benefit from Counseling
- Be honest with the counselor.
- Be present during the session. We recognize that your life is full of academic and social commitments; therapy can be a time to reconnect with yourself away from the distractions of social media and texts or the stresses of studying.
- Be honest with yourself. Try hard. Don’t sabotage counseling because your confidence is at low ebb.
- Identify your goal.
- Do the activities at home that your counselor asks you to do.
- Your counselor is a guide who will help you develop solutions that work to promote love, work and faith.
- Stick with it. Sometimes talking about what you’re experiencing can lead to more intense feelings and you may feel worse; however, continuing to talk with a provider about your concerns will often alleviate your symptoms over time.
