When seeking counseling, it's essential to ask questions that can help you understand the counseling process, build rapport with the therapist, and ensure that their approach aligns with your needs. Here are some questions you might consider asking:
What is your approach to counseling?
What experience and training do you have in dealing with [specific issues you're facing]?
What is the structure of a typical counseling session?
How often do you recommend sessions, and how long is each session?
What are your fees, and do you offer sliding scale options or accept insurance?
How do you handle confidentiality?
How will we measure progress, and what are the expected outcomes in counseling?
What if I feel uncomfortable or don't think the counseling is working for me? What would be the way to let you know?
Do you offer a free consultation or initial assessment session?
Can you provide references or testimonials from previous clients?
How do you handle emergencies or crises outside of regular sessions?
It's crucial to know the therapist's availability and procedures for handling urgent situations.
