Q. What should I expect from a COACHD Counselling Session?
At COACHD we understand that your first counselling session might feel intimidating, particularly if you've never seen a therapist before. It’s not at all unusual for someone to feel this way, you may feel worried that the interactions will be awkward or intimidating, which can cause anxiety. These concerns are normal and learning about what to expect during a COACHD Counselling session is one way to prepare yourself and reduce any stress or anxiety you may be feeling.
An expert COACHD Counsellor will help you navigate life’s challenges and provide specialised care in many areas. For example, if you need assistance with relationship problems, in your job, or if you have a substance abuse problem, your COACHD professional has training and experience in these specific areas. You do not have to have a diagnosed mental health condition to benefit from seeing a COACHD Counsellor. Instead, many of our clients seek help because they face a difficult life challenge and want to benefit from our professional guidance and support.
Rapport is vital to a successful counselling experience. As such your COACHD Counsellor will first spend the time to get to know you, it's important to determine whether we're a good fit for each other. Your COACHD counsellor will offer you the reassurance that you will receive the very best treatment, emotional support, and objective feedback, always in a non-judgmental way.
During your first session, your COACHD Counsellor will review your Intake Forms and ask questions about your life and background. These questions will include topics such as your occupation (past or present), your family background, academic experience, interests, challenges, psychological and physiological issues and what you most want to achieve from your counselling sessions. Aside from these questions, we will discuss your current situation and circumstances in depth. Questions about your relationships will come up, and all your answers will help us understand and support you better.
Questioning is necessary for your COACHD Counsellor to get to know you better, make their initial assessment, and plan how best to help you. Initial conversations are often more about discovering the concerns that have led you to seek our support, rather than jumping into more profound issues. If you don’t feel noticeably different or better after your first COACHD Counselling session, it does not indicate that you will not have a successful treatment, far from it, your transformational journey has only just begun.
Our trained mental health professionals see clients with all types of mental health challenges every day and work with their clients at a pace that matches the client's comfort levels and needs. Your COACHD Counsellor will discuss your issues, challenges, and symptoms in detail before advising how they would like to structure future sessions. Open and honest dialogue between yourself and your COACHD Counsellor is vital to determining the optimal treatment and recovery strategy for you.
