What makes counseling effective?

The mystery around counseling effectiveness has been the subject of intense research for decades.

That's a huge chunk in your court!

Counseling isn't about talking for hours on end while the therapist patiently listens. It's a collaborative process. And, the more you're able to talk about the experience of being in therapy, the better your chances for getting the most from it.

And to do that effectively, you have to know how counseling really works.
