What is counseling?

Therapy and counseling are types of treatment to improve your mental well-being. These treatments can help people who are experiencing emotional or behavior problems, or people who have a mental health disorder. If you are taking medication for a mental health disorder, therapy will usually improve the results you are get from the medicine.

Different types of therapy use different techniques. In most kinds of therapy and counseling, the person receiving treatment will talk with a professional therapist. However, therapy is more than just talking about your problems. Therapy can teach you new ways to think about the situations that bother you and help you cope with your feelings. It can help with feelings of anger, fear, anxiety, shyness and panic. It can also give you tools to help fight low self-esteem and depression, for example.

Is therapy or counseling right for me?

Some people may not want professional therapy or counseling because they feel ashamed of their problems. Others may believe that therapy and counseling are for seriously mentally ill or “crazy” people only. But this is not true. Don’t let shame and fear stop you from getting the help you need. Good mental health is part of your overall health and well-being.

Therapy can help treat a variety of problems. Some common reasons why people seek therapy include:

  • Depression
  • Marriage problems, infidelity, divorce or other relationship issues
  • Sexual problems
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Addictions and compulsions
  • Grief, loss or bereavement
  • Anger
  • Career choice
  • Parenting or family problems
  • Phobias
  • Fertility issues
  • Chronic pain or illness
  • Domestic violence or abuse
  • Eating disorders

If you are not sure if therapy and counseling are right for you, talk to your family doctor. Your doctor can refer you to a trained professional who can help with your problems.
