Can Counseling Help Me? Is It Right for Me?


Seeing a therapist/counselor is an important decision to make when you are suffering from sadness, fear, or hopelessness. Often, people in need of assistance have reservations or questions, such as the following:


  • Why should I trust a stranger with my private information, thoughts, and feelings when I have family and friends who are willing to listen and help me?
  • What is special about the kind of help a certified therapist/counselor offers that my family and friends can’t provide?
  • Can a counselor care for and support me the way my family and friends do, when they don’t even know me?
  • Can I trust a counselor to safeguard my privacy if I open up and tell them my most guarded secrets?
  • Can I expect to feel better or have an improved life after counseling? How will the counselor help me make my life better?


You are right that your family and friends love and care for you, and they will be willing to listen to you. If they have not received training in counseling and/or psychotherapy, however, they lack the necessary skills to assess and diagnose your symptoms, help you understand your emotions, get to the bottom of your issues, and finally, use tools to resolve them. Even if they have received training in this field, it could be difficult for them to stay neutral because of your relationship. There is also no guarantee that they will not tell others who know you.

Seeing a counselor is not only a safe option, it is the best option. A professional counselor/therapist can help you achieve your emotional wellness goals without being biased and without compromising the privacy of your secrets. They are armed with strategies and tools to help you with your concerns.
