Mental Health Therapy The Village |  Counseling The Village

Have you confided in and trusted a friend, loved one, or another person?  Did this person truly listen and allow you the expression of your deepest thoughts and emotions? Occasionally, we require a time to discuss things deeper and with a person that is more knowledgeable and able to assist in understanding why we are feeling a certain way or work through a difficult time in our lives.  Family and friends often mean well but lack the clinical knowledge to dig significantly deep and bring out the emotion and feelings we are inclined to suppress.  People living in The Village, OK do not need to feel alone.  Evanescence Counseling is here for you, to help you through this tough time.

Mental Health Therapy, Counseling, or Talk Therapy are all very helpful when dealing with the pressures and stresses of life, especially when they begin to affect our daily lives.  The specific type and length of therapy required will depend on your personal situation and overall treatment plan, for The Village clients. Conversations with a therapist or counselor can assist with dealing with thoughts, behaviors, symptoms, stresses, goals, past experiences and other specific areas that can directly have a positive impact on your recovery. We understand how tough it may be to talk with a therapist or counselor regarding your personal issues, you must build trust.  However, it can help you come to terms with life problems, while offering an emotional release and a general sense of being listened to, understood and supported.  We know occasionally a psychiatrist may be needed and we can refer as dictated by your personal needs, within the The Village, OK surrounding area.

Establishing Expectations for Your The Village Mental Health Therapy and Counseling

Your situation dictates the parameters and specifics of the therapy your undertaking.  Therapy can be short or longer-term.  The standard counseling session lasts 50 minutes, typically one time per week.  Again, the number and frequency you meet is reliant on upon your program.  The first session will be unique and noticeably different from future visits. The initial visit is more of a “getting to know you” session and will help your therapist get an idea of how to proceed with your treatment.  Sessions are easy to attend since we are in The Village, OK area.

One of the most important things to remember, with mental health therapy and counseling, is have a right to feel safe and respected.  We practice confidentiality; however, we respect if you’re concerned and welcome further discussion.  It is typically and customarily understood that a therapist respects your privacy; and that group members adhere to the same, if you’re part of group meeting. Therapy should address your needs, goals, concerns and desires. If you’re going to be talking to someone about your most personal thoughts, you need to feel comfortable and trust the counselor.

How to Get the Most Out of Therapy

Therapy works much better if there is a partnership between you and the therapist, basically a give and take. Don’t just sit there! We want you to take an active part in your sessions. Your input and commitment will strengthen your therapy in a multitude of ways.  We want to know your goals, please provide your counselor with your goals for treatment. Consider and communicate if there are certain behaviors or issues you care about most. Most of all, keep and maintain an open mind. Be willing to consider new ways of behaving and open to changing your thinking that may improve your quality of life.  We are creatures of habit and naturally resist change. Expect the unexpected and do not be surprised if you are tempted to quit right before real changes happen.

If at any time, please inform your counselor or therapist, you think you’re not making progress.  Our mental health therapists and counselors want to work with you, allowing you to receive the most out of your sessions.  Finally, be open and honest. Your therapist can’t really help if you don’t share the entire picture. We do not want you to say you’re fine when you’re not.
