Taking the first step in contacting a counsellor can take a lot of courage. If you are someone who has not seen a counsellor before it can feel daunting. Let’s face it you’re going to talk to a stranger about how you’re feeling and you’re perhaps not coping; it’s not surprising if you’re feeling nervous, scared and perhaps uncertain about what to expect in counselling.
I recently discovered the book Getting the best start in therapy: A consumer guide to starting counselling and psychotherapy right by Mamood Ahmad.
The book is brilliantly written, brimming with content and easily accessible. Fantastic value too.
The book is aimed at consumers of therapy and therapists.
Ahmad addresses everything from what counselling is, how and why counselling works and how you can get the most out of counselling. If you're looking to access counselling for the first time then this book is well worth a read.
