Common Myths about Counseling

Myth: Counseling is only for people who have serious emotional problems.
Fact: Seeking counseling is not an indication that you are mentally ill or “crazy.” At some time in our lives, we all experience stressful, unforeseen events, strained relationships and personal confusion or uncertainty. Asking for help is a sign of maturity, courage, strength and health.

Myth: I don’t need to “spill my guts” to someone just so they can tell me what to do or how to “fix” me.
Fact: Counseling is not about “spilling your guts” and is not intended to “fix” you.
A well-trained counselor will not tell you what to do. The counselor’s role is to explore your experiences, thoughts, feelings and concerns with you and then assist you in identifying your options. A counselor will help you develop achievable goals that you set for yourself and assist you in overcoming barriers to goal-achievement.

Myth: Going to counseling is a sign of weakness and means that I’m out of control.
Fact: It takes courage to confront sensitive feelings and painful experiences; avoiding the problem is actually the weaker road to take. Participating in counseling is a way to take control of your thoughts, feelings and behaviors and work towards improving your overall quality of life. Since our mood and behaviors affect the people around us, an improved quality of life also has obvious benefits to the people and relationships most dear to us.
