What is Counseling?
Counseling is a professional relationship in which individuals, families and groups are given a safe, supportive and confidential space to accomplish mental health, behavioral, wellness, career and educational goals (American Counseling Association, 2010). Counseling is a collaborative relationship that allows clients to process concerns and develop potential solutions with an individual or team who is able to remain nonjudgmental and confidential.
During highly stressful times, friends and family may not be able to emotionally remove themselves from the situation to offer objective support . A counselor can be helpful during challenging times by remaining objective.
