Often counseling is painful, very painful. A good counselor will ask the hard questions and point out the hard traits that may be causing us heartache. Anger is not an uncommon response from the person in therapy……in fact I would question the quality of the counselor if strong feeling did not surface and surface frequently!!!!

There were many many times in my years of counseling that I was just plain….outraged….but….it was all part of the peeling off the layers….the process of having a real look….making real deep change. It took about 5 years……with a GREAT counselor….but it was well worth it. My life my view or perspective is right where it needs to be….my relationships are wonderful……I have no regrets!!!! I owe my life to my counselor…..I will never forget him….EVER!!!

Soooo…….only you can decide if it is right for you. Only you can decide if your therapist is right for you…..but…. I caution you……THERAPY done well and effectively will bring out all your emotions…… anger…rage….regret…..tears…confusion…. bewilderment …wonder, joy……calm….in the end ,contentment. You may well be lost for a while, maybe a long while……but aren’t you all those things now??????

We don’t become who we are overnight and we don’t make real lasting change overnight either…..1 year of counseling for every year of life is a fair guideline. Personal change is the most difficult task I know….many try….many quit…..to what end????
