We are used to going it alone — sometimes even if we have a strong support system we may feel there are some things even our family or closest friends wouldn’t understand. When nagging feelings can’t be shaken off or questions spin around in our heads, a counselor, therapist, or psychiatrist is the ideal person to turn to.
People have all kinds of reasons for finally taking the step to call a coach, counselor, therapist, or psychiatrist: a confusing situation, a trauma, an accumulation of stress, or maybe a behavioral issue they want help with. In any case, we’re here to help. Reach out to Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Franklin today.
How Does Counseling Work?
First, set aside a particular time each week or month with a skilled therapist or counselor to focus on your mind and emotions. A therapeutic relationship may start by clarifying what you would like to achieve and naming the particular challenges you are facing. A therapist or counselor may ask about your family, career, physical health, relationships, mental health, and/or spirituality depending on your own unique concerns and situation.
Our counselors will then develop a unique treatment plan to address your needs and symptoms needs and symptoms. Some examples of this may look like one of the following:
- If you have experienced abuse or trauma: our therapists are focused on health and recovery. With kindness and expertise, our counselors may seek out the problem’s root and empower their clients with healthy coping skills and interventions.
- If you want to achieve a professional or personal goal: our counselors and coaches may focus on self-discovery. When people can identify their weaknesses, strengths, and goals, they can often identify practical steps to take toward their goals. They may need to learn new interpersonal skills or kick a bad habit, but setting smaller goals allows them to achieve their bigger goals.
- If you are wondering if medication may be an answer for you or if you are in need of help managing or discontinuing medication, our psychiatrists and mental health nurse practitioners (PMHNPs) can help you safely discover the best options for you and walk alongside you through your treatment.
- If you are facing an addiction or other personal problem that is harmful: our counselors can help you take back your self-control. You may need to identify the hurt the addiction has caused, seek out accountability, and learn how to cope with life’s challenges.
