What is the difference between counselling, therapy, and coaching?
What makes a good therapist and therapeutic experience?
The secret behind "good" therapy isn't the method of therapy but the relationship between client and counsellor (also known as the therapeutic relationship). Feeling a sense of trust and fit with your counsellor is what matters most. It is important to shop around and ask questions before making this important decision. In addition, making an informed choice comes from understanding the professional standards of clinical counselling. For more information on this, and a list of registered counsellors in your area you can visit the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors.
