4 Quote What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality. ~Plutarch Source:

5 Poll Which of these words best describes your current opinion toward counseling? A. Positive B. Negative C. Neutral

6 Myths and Realities of Counseling Myth #1: Counseling is only for people with serious mental health issues. Reality: Not true! Many people attend counseling when they come to a point in their lives when nothing seems to be seriously wrong, but they don t know which way to turn next. Some people access counseling when they are simply struggling with a specific situation or concern in their life. Others use it as a means of personal or professional development.

7 Myths and Realities of Counseling cont d Myth #2: Only weak people who can t cope with life seek counseling. Reality: The opposite is actually true! Sometimes life throws you a curveball that you can find difficult to manage on your own. It takes inner strength to acknowledge that you could benefit from addressing it in counseling. It also takes self-awareness to recognize this and courage to be willing to proactively deal with the challenges you are facing.

8 Myths and Realities of Counseling cont d Myth #3: Counseling is only for serious problems. Reality: While counseling can help people facing serious issues, counseling is also available for assistance with everyday issues such as stress, anxiety, or work-life balance. You don t have to wait until things spiral out of control before seeking support counseling can help nip things in the bud before things become too serious.

9 Myths and Realities of Counseling cont d Myth #4: How can a stranger possibly help? Reality: Discussing your concerns with an impartial professional is one of the reasons that counseling is so effective. Counselors have the training and skills to provide you with unbiased insights and support, which may help you speak more openly about your situation without fear of being judged or criticized. This can free you up to make the decision that s right for you. Counseling can often give you a fresh perspective.

10 Myths and Realities of Counseling cont d Myth #5: I ve tried counseling before and it doesn t work. Reality: There are a number of reasons that may have led you to believe this but as long as you are open to the counseling process, you can have a different and more positive experience this time around. On rare occasions, the fit between a person and a counselor might not be right.

11 Definitions Counseling: professional guidance of the individual by utilizing psychological methods especially in collecting case history data, using various techniques of the personal interview, and testing interests and aptitudes.
