Is it time for counseling?

Fear, mystery and stigma often keep people away from professional counseling, but this hesitancy is normal. One question will help you decide whether to go: Are you fed up with feeling miserable?

Contrary to what’s portrayed on TV, most people do not attend counseling for very long. Some may go once, feel empowered, experience a “reality check” and find the strength they have been searching for to finally take charge and overcome a serious problem.

Counseling is challenging, because personal change rarely is easy; however, it can still be fun, exciting, full of relief and life-changing—but above all, not what you expected.
