Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Mental health counseling is a formal, purposeful partnership between a client and a mental health professional. It’s sometimes referred to as clinical mental health counseling; not because it’s cold and dispassionate but because it is based on sound research and uses techniques proven to be effective.
Counseling is a process of varying lengths during which a mental health counselor and a client work together to explore problems and develop the skills and mindset needed to transcend challenges and live a life of emotional health. The length of the counseling process varies depending on the individual and the mental health disorder or distress. It can continue anywhere from a few weekly sessions to months or, sometimes, years of occasional sessions.People seek counseling for many different things.
Counseling is for mental illness as well as for specific life stresses, such as a toxic workplace with a bullying boss. Counseling happens individually, in one-on-one sessions with a counselor. Additionally, people can engage in couples therapy, family therapy, or group therapy.
Clients have a plethora of approaches when counseling. The particular approach used depends on both the counselor’s professional preference as well as the nature and characteristics of an individual client.
Each approach has a particular focus. Mental health counseling methods can emphasize a person’s background, emotions, thoughts, behaviors, or a combination of these elements. Within each category are specific theoretical techniques.
A growing counseling approach that falls into the categories of thoughts, feelings, and behavior as well as stands strongly on its own is positive psychology.
Most counselors don’t practice one single approach but instead weave together principles of many to best fit individual clients. Approaches most likely to be used on their own include CBT, DBT, ACT, and solution-focused brief therapy.
Counseling indeed helps many people; approximately 80 percent of people in counseling reap benefits (Seligman, 2006).
When people engage in mental health counseling, they often gain:
---> Personal empowerment
---> The overcoming of demoralization caused by social stigma
---> Acceptance of life
---> Personal insight
---> Life skills
