What is Counseling?

Counseling is a process in which you meet with a trained professional who can help you sort out issues, assist in decision making and help you develop and achieve your personal goals. You and your counselor engage in a collaborative process to examine current difficulties or distress in a safe and confidential atmosphere. The counselor facilitates a working partnership which allows you to improve your skills, begin to resolve your concerns and gain a deeper understanding of yourself. Counselors also teach you the life skills and coping strategies for handling challenges today and in the future.
