Mental Health Counseling Orlando What is It?

Mental Health Counseling Orlando

What is It?

Mental Health Counseling Orlando

Mental health counseling Orlando is on a lot of peoples minds. However, not many are reaching out and asking for the help they need. Many have the idea that it is just like they see in the movies. The client is sitting on a couch with the therapist behind them asking pointless questions such as, “how does that make you feel?,” and so on. This type of psychotherapy or counseling is outdated and not used today. There is no note taking while in session with me as your therapist.

How Does Mental Health Counseling Orlando Work?

Mental health counseling Orlando is a personal and formal relationship and partnership that you and your therapist create together in a professional setting. You build trust and learn to disclose information to your therapist that you would not do with any other. It is here in counseling that your able to “let it all hang out.” There is no shame or judgment coming from the therapist. We are a collaborative team. Read more about my approach to get a full understanding of how unique therapy is with me.

Together we explore the problems you are facing and find solutions to them. You will be amazed when you see how easy it is to be blind to what might seem so obvious to someone outside of the system. When your in it, you have on blinders. A therapist can help you to bring to light those options or highlight those areas where solutions can be found and healing can be done.

Mental health counseling Orlando with me as your therapist is not intended to last forever. If you do not see results after the first few sessions, then we are not heading in the right direction. Many therapist will tell you that you need a year at least. I do not subscribe to this theory. If your willing to put in the work and come weekly to sessions for a minimum 90 minutes, then 4-6 months should be around the length suitable for you. I do not believe that 50 minute sessions are effective.They were set a that length for insurance purposes.They did not have the client’s best interest at heart.
