An individual may seek therapy or counselling for various reasons, but it normally boils down to one: grief. It can be because of losing someone you love, losing a job, or losing the will to live in general. A therapist or counsellor can help you get back on your feet and help heal the wounds that recent experiences might have left. As professionals, they should possess a particular set of qualities to make them a good one, but the therapy itself should also exhibit certain characteristics for it to be considered a potentially successful one.
If you or someone you know is looking into undergoing counselling or therapy, you can look for these qualities during sessions to see if it will work out.
One of the key elements of good counselling is the sense of genuineness and authenticity. The client should see the practitioner as one with genuine concern for him and his situation. The therapist should also have a certified and verifiable track record, as well as a notable set of experience and credentials.
