Interpersonal Counselling is a one on one counselling technique that aims to give people space to talk about the issues they are facing in their lives and find a solution for the same using a professional help. Counselling is a confidential process, designed to help you address your concerns, come to a greater understanding of yourself, and learn effective personal and interpersonal coping strategies. It involves a professional relationship between you and the therapist, who has the desire and willingness to help you achieve your goals. Counselling involves sharing sensitive, personal and private information that may at times be distressing. During the process, there may be periods of increased anxiety and confusion. The outcome of counselling is often positive. However, the level of satisfaction for any individual is not predictable.
There are certain risks involved in counselling. You may experience a variety of negative emotions during therapy, as you remember and therapeutically resolve unpleasant events. Seeking to resolve concerns between family members, romantic partners, and other people can lead to discomfort as well as relationship changes that may not be originally intended. Your therapist will do her best to assess progress and provide referrals to other sources if that is deemed necessary and appropriate. If you feel therapy is not working, talk to your Therapist about it. Therapy is not a magical process. It requires your time and commitment. The progress you make will depend largely on your investment in the process.
One major benefit gained from participating in counselling is resolution of concerns brought to therapy. Other possible benefits may be a better ability to cope with marital, family and other interpersonal relationships and/or a greater understanding of personal goals and values.
