Frequently Asked Counselor Questions

Counseling is a process that requires both the client and the counselor to work together. Professional counselors work with their clients to discover goals and potential solutions to problems that are causing emotional distress. They also work to enhance clients’ communication and coping skills, boost clients’ self-esteem, and promote behavior change and optimal mental health.

The ideal time to stop going to counseling is when the issue that prompted you to seek help in the first place is either resolved or becomes more manageable. On the other hand, certain insurance providers and managed care plans could impose a cap on the number of sessions for which they will pay. Make sure you check with the provider of your health insurance to learn more about any restrictions that may apply to your policy.

When all is said and done, the primary distinction between counselors and therapists lies in their underlying philosophical assumptions.

Counselors – Mental health concerns are viewed by counselors as a practical and functional problem that needs to be treated for each client individually. They concentrate on problem-solving and the specifics of issues that are stopping a patient from attaining their goals, and they search for therapies that are straightforward and deal directly with those issues.

Mental Health Therapists take an approach that places mental health difficulties within the context of the client’s social and relational challenges. They view individuals as nodes in a wider network, with each node exerting a pull on the individual’s mental health and wellbeing. They investigate all of these interrelationships in order to identify the source of the issue and then center their treatment strategies on a holistic approach.
