How can counseling help me?
Counseling provides support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks. Counseling provides a fresh perspective on difficult problems and points you in the direction of a solution.
Goals of counseling include:
- Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals and values
- Developing skills for improving your relationships
- Finding resolution to the issues or concerns that led you to seek counseling
- Learning new ways to cope with stress and anxiety
- Managing anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures
- Improving communications and listening skills
- Changing old behavior patterns and developing new ones
- Discovering new ways to solve problems in your family or marriage
- Improving your self-esteem and boosting self-confidence
Do I really need counseling? I can usually handle my problems.
Those who come to counseling have the self-awareness to realize that they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. By seeking counseling, you are taking responsibility for where you're at in life and are making a commitment to change the situation. Counseling provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, redirect damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.
Will medication help?
It is well established that the long-term solution to mental and emotional problems and the pain they cause cannot be solved solely by medication. Rather than treating the symptom, counseling addresses the root causes of our behavior and distress. In some cases a combination of medication and therapy is the right course of action.
Does what we talk about in counseling remain confidential?
Confidentiality is the most important component in the client/counselor relationship. You may want your counselor to share information with a physician, attorney or family member, but your counselor cannot release this information without obtaining your written permission.
