Is there any risk involved with therapy?

 There are some risks as well as many benefits with therapy. For example, in therapy, there is a risk that clients will, for a time, have uncomfortable levels of sadness, guilt, anxiety, anger, frustration, loneliness, helplessness, or other negative feelings. Clients may recall unpleasant memories. Sometimes a client’s problems may temporarily worsen after the beginning of treatment. Most of these risks are to be expected when people are making important changes in their lives. 

While you consider these risks, you should know also that scientists in hundreds of well-designed research studies have shown the benefits of therapy. People who are depressed may find their mood lifting. Others may no longer feel afraid, angry, or anxious. In therapy, people have a chance to talk things out fully until their feelings are relieved or the problems are solved.

How Do I End Therapy? 

There are four ways to withdraw from therapy:

  1. At your regular time alert your therapist that you feel it is time to withdraw from therapy.

  2. Missing two consecutive visits will be considered withdrawal from therapy.

  3. Failure to make payments for any two consecutive visits without prior approval will be considered withdrawn from therapy.

  4. When you and the therapist have fulfilled all the goals of the contract and feel that termination of therapy is advisable, it ends.

What if I don’t know why I’m here?


How does talking to someone actually help?"

Whether it’s stress from work, relationship issues, or just a sense that something’s off, talking things through can help clear your head and find solutions. Think of it as a pit stop in a race – it doesn’t mean you’re out of the race; it means you’re tuning up to perform your best. In counseling, you’ll find a no-judgment zone to express yourself freely and get practical advice tailored just for you. It’s all about building up your resilience and strategies for tackling life’s hurdles – like a personal trainer for your mental fitness.

A standard clinical hour is (50) minutes. Frequently, clients will be scheduled for their sessions on a weekly basis. Eventually, clients will move to a bi-weekly basis or something less. Therapy is hard work! Clients should prepare to use their session time wisely. The time between sessions is also important. This is the time when clients put in to practice what they have developed during their therapeutic sessions.
