Find The Right One

It is of the utmost importance that when you are looking for a counselor, you need to find one that is a fit for you

We cannot stress this enough. You do not want to end up with a counselor that you do not like, so we encourage you to take the time to view all of our therapist's profiles. 

By doing that you can see what topics that they are specially trained in, for example, they may be trained in helping those with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, or alcoholism. 

There are many fields that are covered in the counseling field, and there is one out there for you!

Seeing Your Counselor

Sometimes seeing a new counselor for the first time can be nerve-wracking. 

But it doesn't have to be. 

They will make sure that you are comfortable, and then you can begin to talk about what issues you may be having.  

That is the great thing about therapists, they are a neutral party that do not judge anything that you say. 

That is the beauty of counseling, unbiased advice. 

You never know, you may even feel more comfortable talking to them than you would a family member. 

Sometimes, just having someone else there to talk to is great knowledge to help you move forward in facing your issues.

Setting Treatment Goals

After your first session together, you and your counselor will talk about treatment goals. 

They will discuss with you what they think are the best courses of treatment for you, and what that will look like for you. 

There will likely be short-term goals first, to take small steps in helping you to tackle your issues. 

Then there will likely be long-term goals that you will be able to achieve after the short-term ones. 

Making a treatment plan is an important part of your first session with your counselor. 

Tools 

Your counselor is going to be able to provide you with invaluable tools that you can use for the rest of your life. 

There are a variety of different kinds of tools and treatments that help with illnesses like depression, OCD, addiction, and more. 

There are many treatments available. 

Some include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, 

Thought-Stopping, and other kinds of techniques that you employ, especially in times that you may find yourself feeling upset. 

You will have these tools in your back pocket, so to speak, to use when you need them, at any time. 

Types Of Counseling 

While there is just general overall counseling, there are also quite a few specialty counselors that you can see if you want to address something specific that may be bothering you. 

For example, some of these specially-trained counselors can offer:

- Marriage Counseling

- Parenting Counseling

- Addiction Counseling

- Depression and/or Anxiety Counseling 

- Child Counseling 

- PTSD Counseling

There are even sub-specialties in counseling as well. 

But it is up to you to make a connection with a therapist to start, and then from there, if they think that you need to see a counselor with a specialty in what you are dealing with, they will recommend another counselor for you to visit that is more attuned to your mental health needs. 

Give Yourself Grace

You do not have to be ready to jump right into counseling just yet, and that is totally okay. 

You have to be your own best advocate when it comes to you and your mental health. 

You are the only one who knows best what you need. 

So, give yourself some grace, and don't fret over it if you are not ready just yet. 

But rest assured, that we will be here for you when you are ready to embark on your counseling journey. 

Also, give yourself time, time to think, time to process, and time to make a decision of whether or not you want to start counseling. 

Life can be difficult, and things can be thrown our way that we may never have imagined, but having the right tools with you taught by a licensed counselor will get you back on the road to recovery. 

Conclusion

Ultimately, counseling is a very personal decision. You have to be ready to tackle the issues that you are seeking counseling for. 

If you do decide to seek out a counselor at OvercomeWithUs, here in Colorado Springs, you will be greeted with and treated with the utmost respect and confidentiality. Our counselors are here to help you, with whatever you are dealing with in your life. 

They will also help you to plan goals to attain and tools to use.
