Counsellor or Doctor? How is a session Different?

You have a problem. You go to the Doctor. You might carry some of the following conscious or unconscious assumptions…

– I will tell the Doctor my problem
-The Doctor will draw conclusions relatively quickly to allow a ‘treatment path’ to be activated
-They will make my problem go away, ideally without me having to do much (apart from maybe take medicine, take it easy etc)
-The ‘fix’ is from the outside to the inside
-Many similar ‘fixes’ might have been offered by this Doctor to other patients
-It might be about getting rid of something or removing something from you

Counsellor or Doctor? How is a session Different?

How is this different from coming to see a Counsellor / Therapist?

-I won’t try to ‘fix’ you
-It’s not about making progress necessarily (unless you tell me that’s what you want)
-Instead it’s about understanding more clearly WHERE you are and WHY this might be
-It’s about understanding how you are affected
-It’s about understanding your hopes, fears, imagination, worries, thoughts, and feelings
-We might wonder, ponder and consider things in more detail and with more time
-You are an individual-We will consider your past, your present, your future
-I believe you have all the wisdom and help you need within yourself, but there are some things getting in the way of you being able to access this inner wisdom
-You might have to put a bit of yourself in the process and I realise this can be difficult, scary, and hard to imagine, but I’ve taken these steps before you so I might have an idea of how it could work for you

-There is the potential for lasting, real change and growth
