Therapy & Counselling:
With literally hundreds of different types of psychotherpies practiced today, sorting them out can be very confusing for those seeking services. If you are seeking to address a mental health or relationship issue with the help of a professional, it's important that you choose a therapist who has an approach that makes sense for you. If you find yourself disagreeing with the ideas and approach that the therapist uses, you'll be much less likely to make progress in therapy.
One essential prerequisite for good treatment outcome is establishing rapport with your counsellor. Rapport refers to the comfort level that you feel in working with him or her. This includes feeling that your counsellor cares for you, understands what is going on in your life, and is working with to help you achieve your goals. If this sense of teamwork or rapport is not there, ask to be transferred to another counsellor or look for a better fit for yourself. you'll make much more progress if you have strong rapport with your counsellor than if you don't regardless of the type of therapy being used.
