What it is that we do and why counseling is helpful
It is normal for people to seek counseling when they experience changes in life, even positive ones. Whether you are challenged by adapting to a different job, a change in relationship status, the death of a loved one, or another crisis in your family or community, you can benefit by talking about it with a professional. Oftentimes, unresolved complex dilemmas lead to serious problems such as depressed mood or anxiety. Limited coping skills may further complicate matters. Counseling can help reduce mental health symptoms, increase use of coping skills, and help change begin.
Therapists are non-judgmental professionals who are trained in dealing with mental health and relationship needs.. In a safe and supportive environment, your counselor will assess your current situation by asking a series of questions about your past and present life. Based on this information, you will discuss circumstances that can be changed and others that must be accepted. Together with your therapist, you will then develop goals, action plans and strategies to live a less stressful and more fulfilling life. By meeting regularly with your therapist, you will have the guidance and support needed to make the necessary changes in your life.
If you have lingering feelings of helplessness, anger, confusion, sadness, irritability, nervousness or guilt, know that help is available and effective.
