Does counseling / therapy really work?

An awesome benefit of  counseling sessions, or therapy, is that it not only helps you understand yourself better but it helps you understand other people. However, you get out of therapy what you are wiling to put into it. It is a collaborative relationship where both parties (therapist and client) put in a lot of work. It takes much more than coming to sessions once a week to make long term changes.

You will be expected to practice skills you are taught in session, outside of session, reading suggested articles, and/or doing self-care. If you are not willing to put in the time and energy needed, you can expect little improvement. Since big and small problems are going to come up from time to time, knowing how to deal with them in a healthy way is an essential skill. The counselors at Sage Minds Counseling are willing to put in the energy for you to have better mental health through therapy.

It can be comforting just knowing that you have a built-in support structure that you can go to once on a schedule. People are starting to open up more about their personal struggles and mental health issues because they see others that have been helped. If you think that you may have a mental health problem or need someone to talk to, we highly encourage you to get help.
