People seek psychotherapy for a wide variety of problems including an overwhelming and prolonged sense of sadness and helplessness, emotional difficulties that makes it hard for them to function from day to day, and actions that are harmful to themselves or to others. It can also involve difficulties coping with family members or close friends and problems with intimacy or sexuality.
The first step that the psychologist takes is to enquire why you have come for psychotherapy. This is just the beginning step of a careful and thorough assessment which may involve tests of various kinds. On the basis of this information and what you tell your therapist, a tentative diagnosis is made and a treatment plan is discussed. Sometimes clients have very specific goals but most times an initial step of therapy is goal clarification. Most times the goals may change as people progress in therapy.
A great variety of strategies and types of solutions to your problem are available but the most important ingredient for effectiveness is that you and the therapist develop a positive, trusting, and respectful therapeutic relationship.
Choosing the right Psychologist or Counsellor is important in matching the experience with the particular issue you wish to work on. It is also important that you find someone you are comfortable working with in order to develop a positive theraputic relationship.
