No. Counsellors are not advice givers or problem solvers rather they are professionals trained with skills and competencies that facilitate an individual to gain awareness, growth and transformation through a warm & understanding relationship.

Ans.

The counsellor works with an open, neutral and non-judgmental attitude working to understand the person from their socio-cultural and religious background. As part of their training, counsellors have been exposed to various religions and worldviews, so as to be relevant and understand clients from their own religion and worldview. Counsellors are ethically bound to not enforce their personal religious beliefs to clients.

Counsellors attempt to understand and relate to your own religion and worldview in order to help you better without enforcing their own religious views. However, professional counselling is based on psychological schools of thought that are scientific in nature and not necessarily on religious backgrounds.

Ans.

There are several myths. The most popular ones are these:

Myth #1. Counseling is only for mad people not normal people.

Reality: Many people who attend counseling-sessions are bright, educated, and stable people. These people are often stressed with problems in a specific area of their life which is impacting their overall personal and professional growth. Thus, these are seekers looking for path for their personal growth and development. Struggles and difficulties are a part of life for all people. Many argue that the ability to ask for and accept counseling help represents their attitude and sanity.

Myth #2: Counseling is meant for only severe issues

Reality: We come across wide array of problems every day, thus most individuals seek counseling for everyday life such as relationship problems, anxiety & symptoms of depression. It is rightly said that counseling helps people suffering from severe problems. However, majorly these people attend counseling not for severe problems but from mild to moderate to prevent problems from becoming severe.

Myth #3 A counselor may not be able to help since he does not know me well

Reality: In realty, this is one of the reasons why counseling can be effective, since a counselor is not a part of your day to day life, they are capable of being neutral with less bias. Also, family and friends tell you what you should do but they have their limitation which may or may not be as effective as a counselor. Counseling involves a unique relationship where you are empowered and challenged to find your own answers that are right for your life.

Myth #4 Counselors are boring and one sided. They just sit there & nod.

Reality: Media has largely stereotyped and depicted counselors in movies to have led to their life by reading your mind, detached, or ineffective. Counselors today are active and engaging, using questionaire, response, and discussions to help you move towards your goals. It up to an individual to consider how active you want your counselor to be.

Myth #5 Counseling sessions are endless.

Reality: The duration of counseling sessions depends on the client’s goals, motivation, and the severity of the problems brought into session. However, most counseling is short-term, generally lasting between eight and fifteen sessions. Good counselors are an investment in helping you meet your goals so you can successfully operate independent of counseling.

Myth #6 Everyone may get to know that I'm seeing a counselor

Reality: Counselors our bound by professional ethics and state law to protect your confidentiality and privacy both during counseling and after counseling ends. Only in extreme cases where someone is in imminent risk or a judge mandates release of counseling records can confidentiality be broken. Other than this, your information can only be shared if you share it or you provide written authorization for releasing information. A good counselor will help you understand confidentiality to you at the beginning of counseling for your knowledge.

Myth #7 Couples counseling makes this worse showing one person as the villain

Reality: A counselor being third person is unbiased focuses on your cordial relationships with your partner. The whole purpose of the session is to facilitate relationship change, thus gathering information is part of the process. It often results into each member introspecting one’s role in the current state of the relationship. Rather than labeling someone as wrong or right, the couple’s counselor will encourage both members to make changes leading to improvements in the relationship.

Myth # 8 Only if you are near a divorce, you should go for marriage counseling

Reality: Marriage counseling can be beneficial for couples who suffer from mild, moderate, or severe problems or couples who just want to attain greater marital happiness and satisfaction. Many married couples avoid counseling until their married life is at risk of divorce. Counseling does not guarantee that a divorce will not happen, but it can guide you towards the best decision for the relationship.

Myth #9 Couples problems can resolved in couples counseling

Reality: While it is ideal to work on couples’ issues as a couple, various alternative approaches do exist to resolve a matter if one of the person is willing. In some cases, couples’ counselors see members of the couple individually for 1-2 sessions to augment couples counseling. Many a time, it is useful that one person of a couple benefit from attending individual counseling as well to supplement couples counseling progress. In each case, the definitive goal is to advance the couple’s relationship and couples counseling remains a good option in many cases.


Myth #10 Counseling will change everything in who I am.

Reality: Counseling does not change all the aspects of your life. Having to visit a counselor does not change your identity. It only changes what you need to, in order to meet your goal and not that you are not ready for, or that go against your beliefs and values. Counseling is designed to facilitate positive change. It is important to keep in mind that you are in charge of the change that you make. If you are unhappy with the changes that are happening, tell your counselor. Counselors want to help you change in the ways that feel beneficial to your life

Myth #11 Counseling is an art and not a science primarily work with career guidance and addiction

Reality: Counselors are well trained and equipped with knowledge on human behavior to bring a change in one’s life. Meeting a counselor is lot different than meeting a friend or relatives. They brought in fresh and constructive prospective to your life.
