It is okay to ask questions of your counselor? I rather like it

When we go to see a counselor we think they will be asking us all the questions. In reality it could be very good to ask questions of them also to get a sense of who they are, their style of work and is this person a good fit with you?

Here are 5 great questions to start with. You can ask as many as you like to find out who this person is. Go for it, don't be shy.

This time of questions is similar to putting your energy and time into finding the right partner, the right job and new home. These questions are important because the counselor you choose you will be spilling your guts out to. Telling them your hidden fears and truths and you sure want to make sure this is a person you are comfortable with. Also when you see a counselor, you are creating and intimacy and want this person to resonate with you and you need to trust them.

1. My problem is ____________, How would you go about treating that?

2. Some counselors are more comfortable addressing the immediate problem, while others want to focus on the deeper issue. Which one are you?

3. Do you tend to lead the session or follow my lead?

4, What are your strengths as a counselor?

5. Have you been in therapy?

When in the search for a counselor you are much better off seeing a graduate student you connect with than a 40-year veteran and author with whom you don't feel understood. The best thing to do is go with your gut. Follow your instincts.
