I just started IC today, but the sessions/service provided by my employee assistance provider is limited (only 4 sessions), so we're working on assertiveness/boundaries/self-esteem issues, and she'll refer me to someone else after for more in-depth work on sexual issues, FOO issues, etc.
Will be starting MC with the same provider (but different clinician), and same deal - only 3-4 sessions. In the first session we'll discuss the main issue, and decide what our focus will be for the next few sessions.
BH can also access individual counselling, but again it's limited in nature.
I recognize that we'll need more, but these services are of no charge to us, so we're starting there.
What sorts of things do you/have you worked on in IC and MC, and what have you found most helpful?
What was unhelpful?
