What is Counseling?
Counseling is a professional relationship in which individuals, couples, 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 their 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 and supporting your needs based on your individual goals and values.
Counseling involves a confidential environment, generally a small office or private virtual meeting, that enables you to process your concerns without judgment. Counseling is meant to provide you with a non-judgmental and objective participant on your mental wellness journey. Mindful Paths Network counselors practice from a variety of counseling approaches with the common goal of meeting each client's individual needs.
How long will I need counseling?
Generally, people seek counseling when there is something they would like to change. How long this process will take varies. Ideally, counseling will end when your reasons for seeking counseling have been satisfied.
What is Clinical Supervision?
Clinical supervision is supervision of a counselor's clinical work to offer objective and developmentally appropriate feedback and direction to counselors-in-training, as well as for counselors who have completed their Master's or Doctoral level training and are seeking independent licensure.
