Anxiety is top of the list for people seeking counselling and therapy

What are people bringing to counselling?

People come to counselling for all sorts of reasons, from help with a mental health issue to wanting time and space to explore life options. Below is a list of the most searched terms that people use when looking for counselling and therapy help, the ones I have included are all related to the work that I do. What is of note is the amount of diagnostic labels and terms that people use in their searches, this might reflect an increased awareness of metal health conditions or that more people are searching for help from the private sector for these challenges.  Anxiety consistently comes up in the therapy room and in list of what people search, addiction appears to be on the rise in searches as dose personality disorders.  Many people come to therapy without words or a label for what is wrong and that can be part of the therapy process, to help the person discover what is wrong and understand it, it is then that changes can happen.

Anxiety continues to be the most searched term on  Counselling Directories.

The Contribution of Private Counselling

The Contribution of Private Counselling

Private Practice counselling and therapy has a great deal to contribute to the lives of the people it serves. In consultation with the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy Private Practice Executive Committee, Patti Wallace, BACP Lead Advisor Private Practice, has produced a briefing paper on the specific contribution of private practice counselling. We feel this document really articulates effectively why people choose to engage with private counsellors and therapists and the valuable contribution private counselling services make not only to individuals but to the wider community.

You can download the paper here

The Conclusion of the document is reproduced below.

Private practice counselling makes a significant contribution to both prevention and intervention in relation to psychological distress and mental illness in the general population. In order to ensure the greatest benefit to the client, it is important that the public and other professionals are aware of its value relative to statutory and voluntary sector provision, and have the knowledge to access and refer to private practitioners where appropriate to the client’s circumstances.
