Counselor Insights

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A COUNSELOR
The most important thing to look for is a good fit between yourself and your potential counselor. You must feel comfortable, safe and understood. The best way to find a good counselor is to ask others who have gone to one and received help. Another way to find a Christian counselor, if that is your preference, is to call several churches and ask what counselors they refer people to. If you hear one or two names mentioned repeatedly, try them first. If their schedule is full, they may be able to refer you to a counselor they work with and trust.

WHEN TO SEEK OUTSIDE HELP
Prolonged depression is not something to ignore. If you suspect depression in yourself, spouse, family member or friend or your relationship itself is in a "depressed" state, it may be time to seek outside assistance. If your symptoms are impairing your ability to function at home or work, or if you're having extremely negative or suicidal thoughts, you need to seek professional help immediately. Call your family physician to get a checkup and to discuss the possibility of an antidepressant medication. In addition, it may be beneficial to make an appointment with a counselor so that you can begin to work on things in your life that have contributed to you becoming depressed.

If your depression has not significantly impaired your ability to function but you have no joy in life, it's time to consider making an appointment with a counselor. God may be leading you to work on some of the issues or patterns in your life that make you depression prone in the first place. Remember, we all need loving connections and the community of others to get well and stay healthy. Counseling may be part of God's plan for your growth and well-being.

Your physician may also be able to refer you to a counselor to whom he refers patients. When you make your initial call to a counselor, it is very appropriate to ask some questions, such as:

  1. What are your fees, per session?
  2. What is your experience in working with depression (or areas of your concern)?
  3. What are your professional credentials?
  4. Do you have a Christian orientation, and do you incorporate that into your counseling?
  5. Can I make an initial appointment for a consultation?

The last question gives you the option to go and check them out to see if you feel comfortable with and able to open up to this person. If you feel uncomfortable for some reason after that first meeting, you do not have to return.

We, at Couples Care Center and Counseling Services, want you to feel safe and comfortable so your healing journey can be meaningful and lasting. Feel free to contact us and we will do our best to find the perfect fit for you and your issues of concern. God bless you. We honor your courage to heal.
