5 Mistakes that people do while taking Therapy

5 Mistakes that people do while taking Therapy

 

Therapeutic Alliance is a relationship between the one seeking treatment ie. the client and the one providing the treatment ie. the therapist. The prognosis of every therapy depends on both client and therapist.

Unfortunately, at times people unintentionally do mistakes while taking counseling sessions that makes the outcome of therapy poor.

1. Non compliance from the side of the client:

When the client does not show sincerity in doing the therapy work given or tasks assigned by the psychologists, it creates obstacles in effectiveness of therapy. This may happen due to lack of comprehension regarding therapy work also despite providing clear instructions by the therapist.

2. Increased Absenteeism:

Due to lack of awareness regarding mental health, people tend to show irregularity in counseling sessions which in turn leads to poor prognosis in therapy. Frequent absenteeism generally breaks the flow of sessions and also hampers the rapport formation between therapist and the client.

3. Mask Holding:

Therapeutic relationship is based on non judgemental attitude of therapist and mutual trust between the two, however, when client does not reveal his true self in front of the therapist, then due to misleading information provided by the client, the effort from therapist goes in vain. This can happen unintentionally also when client is not consciously aware about his or her difficult personality traits.

4. Unreasonable Expectations from therapist:

When client lacks patience, they tend to over expect from the therapist regarding therapy outcomes. This may create trouble and hamper the quality of therapy. Counseling sessions provide long term results but as it does not involve medications, it requires persistence and consistency from the client which when fails, leads to poor results in counseling sessions.

5. Over Generalizations:

 At times, due to bad past experience with any other therapist, client generalizes it and does not put effort in reaching towards goals of therapy. Lack of motivation and unwillingness shown by the client also contributes to lowering the effectiveness of online counseling sessions.

In order to reduce chances of committing Mistakes by the client, its important to spread awareness regarding the same. Therapist can also contribute in this by keeping these areas in mind and use variety of tools techniques to build a strong rapport and make therapy sessions more interesting.
