Questions to Bring to a Professional Counselor

If you decide to see a professional counselor, maximize the benefits of your first visit by answering these questions before you go:

  1. What is causing stress and tension in your life?
  2. How does the tension affect you, your family, and your job?
  3. Are these stress or tension issues short term or long term?
  4. Who in life represents your support group?
  5. What are you willing to change or give up to have less stress or tension in your life?
  6. When you have successfully reduced stress and tension on your own, how have you done so?
  7. What has not worked? 8) If counseling is successful, how do you envision life afterward?

Life-Work Connections/EAP is brought to you by Well-U, helping eligible individuals to assess issues, and provide short-term counseling and referrals.
