Counseling, or psychotherapy, gives us a place to talk about our thoughts and feelings—both good and bad. It offers us the opportunity to find perspective and learn new lessons during difficult times. It allows us to better understand and work through the challenges that we face, with a little professional help and guidance.
Whether we talk to our counselor in person or online, this journey proves to help people improve their overall emotional and mental wellbeing. In addition, it helps people work toward and achieve their goals as well as pave a happier life. To summarize the many benefits of counseling, it helps people become the healthy, successful, happy individuals we all hope to become.
We might decide to talk to a counselor because we’re having a rough going with our partner and need an outsider’s perspective; or, we might decide to work with a counselor because we’re feeling overwhelmed by stress, anger, and other challenging emotions. There are many reasons to begin counseling, all of which are warranted. Additionally, psychiatrists can be helpful in pinpointing and diagnosing certain mental health conditions, plus prescribing medication.
If you would like to talk to a counselor or psychiatrist, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry in Baltimore, MD. We’re here to help you on this journey we call life. Just call us to schedule your appointment.
How Does Counseling Work? What Should I Expect?
Beginning counseling can be scary or intimidating simply because it’s new territory. That said, knowing what to expect at your first session and onward can help to ease your worries. Here’s how you can expect your experience to unfold:
- First, you must fill out some paperwork, which will cover your insurance information, your medical history, and other basic (but important) information. You’re probably used to doing this when you see a new doctor or haven’t been for a while.
- After, your counselor will probably have a few questions for you, too. Now, they might address a few of the same questions that you answered in your paperwork, but you needn’t worry—they just want to make sure they cover everything they need to know!
- Then, your counselor will talk a little bit about confidentiality. In a nutshell, everything you tell your counselor is confidential unless they think your life is in danger.
- Once all of these basics are covered, your counselor will get to focus on how they can help you. They’ll want to know why you decided to pursue counseling, what your goals are, and so on. Then, they’ll use this comprehensive understanding to design a treatment plan for you.
Counseling doesn’t sound so scary after all, does it? If you’re thinking about working with a counselor or you’d like to see how counseling might help you, reach out to Thriveworks. We can set you up with a skilled, licensed counselor, therapist, psychiatrist, psychologist, or coach right away.
