How can therapist help me
Are you wondering how a therapist can help you when they don’t know anything about you? Have you been skeptical about getting therapy because you don’t want to talk about private and personal things with somebody? Do you have this idea that therapy is about going into a therapist’s office and crying? Are you skeptical that a therapist, who doesn’t know anything about you, can help you?
Therapy is a process and many people often wonder what that means. It is true when you say “How could a therapist help me when they don’t know anything about me?” As I tell many of my clients that’s true, it takes me time to get to know you, that is actually part of the therapy.
Therapy is building a relationship between the therapist and the client, which could be an individual or a couple. The therapist, myself, heals through the relationship. In building a relationship with people I start to see how they handle emotional regulation, how well they express themselves, what kind of boundaries they have, how they respect boundaries, how they are able to follow instructions and I learn a lot of information about them. In the process, they will also be learning information about me and as we do this, we start to form a team. This is all about the therapy, as we do this trust is slowly being built.
As trust is built and I get a better insight into how the person thinks, how they perceive the world, how they perceive themselves, how they manage and handle boundaries, I then start to hold up a “mirror to them”. This “mirror” is to help people become aware of their thinking, their belief systems, their ideas, fixed or otherwise, that are creating problems for them in their lives, whether it is regarding emotional regulation, mental health, depression or anxiety.
Therapy occurs one time a week for 50 minutes. During this period, the therapist is assessing the client, is teaching them skills, is making them aware, but then they will have homework. Therapy deals with people’s ideas, beliefs and ways of thinking. The idea that you need to be in a physical office with the therapist is an outdated idea. Some therapists still do this, others do it in a variation, at All in the Family Counselling we do face-to-face via online therapy. Why do we do this? Because it allows us for the greatest flexibility in hours, days and times and to provide in-person we provide retreats and travel therapy.
