Counseling is the process of providing professional counsel to an individual through the use of psychological procedures, particularly in the collection of case history data, the use of different personal interview techniques, and the assessment of interests and aptitudes.
Many mental health issues can benefit from counseling to improve symptoms. People learn to manage symptoms that don’t respond to treatment immediately away in therapy. According to research, the benefits of therapy outlast the effects of medication alone.
Counseling encourages you to have an open and honest conversation about the issues that are bothering you. You’ll work with your therapist to identify and understand how these stressors are affecting your life, as well as develop techniques to cope with the symptoms.
