People are becoming more accepting of mental health help. The stigma that surrounds mental illness is a major reason people don’t get the counseling or therapy they need. Fortunately, though, that stigma is weakening and more people are seeking counseling, therapy, and life coaching than before. Why is this such good news? Because our mental and emotional health are just as important as our physical health, the road to a better life involves managing the problems that arise.
“It is in the nature of helping and counseling to be a process moving
toward something rather than arriving at a state of completion.”
Is there a problem that’s been plaguing your mental or emotional health? Have you considered working with a counselor or coach to resolve this issue? Now is the time to take that leap and get the professional mental health help you need. Don’t worry about stigma or judgment—you deserve to heal, and our counselors will help you do so (free of stigma and judgment).
If you’re ready to schedule counseling or coaching, call Thriveworks Columbus today. We pride ourselves on providing premium mental health services—this means that in addition to working with a skilled, caring mental health expert, you’ll experience quick and flexible scheduling, as well as have the opportunity to pursue online counseling therapy and use innovative technologies that improve the counseling experience.
Consider Counseling: Here’s How It Can Help
Counselors see clients with a wide range of issues. One day, they might work with an individual who is struggling with anxiety, triggered by big crowds or crowded spaces. The next, they might work with someone who is struggling with a low self-esteem and intense feelings of loneliness. In either (and any) regard, the counselors at Thriveworks Columbus can help the client to understand and properly manage the problem at hand. Rest assured that a counselor at Thriveworks Columbus can help.
Does Counseling Really Work?
Remember how we said that more and more people are opening themselves to the idea of working with a counselor or therapist? Well, some are still on the fence. If you’re on the fence because you aren’t sure you’ll have a positive experience, consider the following data from a study published in Barna Trends 2018:
- 42% of US adults have worked with a counselor at some point in their lives.
- 13% of US adults say they’re currently working with a counselor.
- Over 28% say they’ve worked with one in the past.
- 36% are open to working with a counselor.
- 47% have had a positive experience in counseling
- 29% say their counseling experience was somewhat positive
- A small 5% said their counseling experience was negative
- Only 1% said they had a very negative counseling experience
To summarize, most people have a positive experience in counseling! A very small number of people, on the other hand, have had a negative counseling experience. So, if counseling is something you need or something you think that you might find value in, reach out to Thriveworks Columbus. We want to help you find greater health and happiness now.
