Am I A Good Candidate For Counseling?
What must I sign to become a patient?
It is reported that people go through as many as five stages to reach the point of being a good candidate for counseling. In the beginning, the individual has a problem but does not see it. Friends or family might see it first, but they would tell you the person is “in denial” or “clueless.” As people progress through the stages, they reach the point of shopping for advice, counsel, or therapy, while still trying to handle things on their own. Near the last stage, they reach a crisis point and show up in the counselor’s office. All too often clients come to counseling hoping it will get someone else, or a certain situation, to change. Clients with this agenda can soon become discouraged with therapy when they realize that “someone else” or situation is not changing.
