Common Questions About Breakthrough Counseling

Below are some common questions we often get asked about the therapy and counseling process. If you have any questions that are not addressed here, please feel free to contact our office and we will do our best to explain.

How frequently will we meet?

In the beginning of counseling clients often come in on a once a week basis for 4-6 weeks. After that, the frequency is based on your needs and goals.

How long do sessions last?

Sessions at Breakthrough Counseling last 60 minutes.

Is seeking counseling a sign of weakness or defeat?

Absolutely not, asking for help when you need it demonstrates great strength. We often feel we should be able to resolve our problems on our own, but at times it can be difficult to do so. Asking another person to help you help yourself is also an indication of strength. It takes courage to face your problems, and once you have decided to get help, you have already taken an important step toward positive change.

Isn’t counseling for people who are basically “unstable”?

Not at all. Today counseling is broadly used and is appropriate for all populations and for a wide range of concerns. Everyone has difficult life experiences sometimes. When these difficulties interfere with how you are feeling or your ability to function, then it can be very helpful to seek assistance or support from others who are trained to help you.

Is my problem appropriate for counseling?

There is no such thing as right/appropriate or wrong/inappropriate issues that can be presented in counseling. In other words, any problem can be addressed.

Why go to counseling when you can talk to friends?

If talking to friends isn’t helping enough, someone outside of your life, who has training in helping others, can give you a more objective assessment of problems that concern you.

How do I know if I need counseling or would benefit from it?

If you are unsure, you may call our office at 812-550-3934 to talk about your needs and how it might benefit you.

Simple and Easy.
