Talk Therapy in Greenville, SC – Counselors and Therapists in Greenville, SC

What’s your view of mental health counseling? Does your idea of therapy involve the image of someone on a couch with a counselor asking, “…and how does that make you feel?” Or maybe you’ve hear that counseling is for the weak and mentally ill. If you started meeting with a counselor, what would you talk about – and what if it doesn’t work? What if your problems don’t go away? What if they get worse?

You may think that talking with a friend is just as good – even better, actually, because it’s more convenient, it’s free, and you already have a relationship with that person. But here are some things to consider:

  • Your friend may be available, but that doesn’t necessarily make it convenient for him or her
  • Yes, it may be free, but talk therapy is more than just a conversation between two people
  • An established friendship may actually hinder you from the healing and growth you really need

Talk therapy has many benefits. The conversations between you and a licensed counselor are different from those you’ll have with a trusted friend. The value of speaking with talk therapist is not greater than speaking with a friend – it’s just different. And that’s because the purpose is different.

How Can Talk Therapy Help?

Talk therapy is helpful for many types of mental health issues, including the following:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress management
  • Panic disorders
  • Relationship issues
  • Marriage counseling
  • Divorce recovery
  • Grief and loss
  • Life coaching
  • Peak performance
  • … and much more!

Your therapist will help you explore thoughts and behaviors that are in conflict with each other. You’ll gain insight regarding negative or false beliefs that steal your happiness and prevent you from reaching your potential. You’ll spend time discussing your past and how it affects you today. Talk therapy may reveal patterns that keep you from engaging in meaningful relationships. You may even discover your authentic self. You might be able to do this with a friend; but if you’re like most people, it’s not likely. Your friends are probably not therapists, so let them be your friends and save the hard topics for talk therapy.

Thankful for Emily Gilliam!

ion. I thought I was handling it well until one day had a massive panic attack. I did my research and reached out to her immediately. She met with me the next day and helped my put a plan into place for recovery. The first time I met her, I knew I could trust her and she tailored my therapy and sessions to what I needed at the time and at each stage of progress. There were times I digressed and she helped me get back on track and we celebrated my small wins and progress together. I would recommend her to any friend or family member. I know personally, taking the first step to get help is an important one. I can confidently say she was a great first step for me and I know she's fantastic at helping others too.

I don’t write many reviews but this one is worth it. I found myself in a difficult and dark spot. A time in ...Read more

my life where in my mind, I had nowhere to turn. I reached out and I had never done this before. It was extremely difficult to say to myself, “I need someone to talk to.” Not knowing who or where that someone would be. And so, I was introduced to Emily Gilliam. A stranger, a therapist, a counselor. I don’t talk as it is, but Emily made it easy as I spilled my circumstances, actions, thoughts, and beliefs to Emily in a comfortable and secure setting. And for over a year, Emily and I were able to get through my darkness, my tough time, my thoughts, my situation. I would not be in my better place right now if it were not for Emily or people like Emily that are in her profession. Emily and people like her are needed and I’m am very happy that our paths crossed. And if you find yourself in a dark spot, a dark place in life, and you have the opportunity for your path to cross into Emily’s, you would be in a safe, secure, professional, space. I do thank her every day, even though she may not know it, or may not know how important she is and was to me and how her help, advice, thoughts, options, and opinions that she gave me got me through my darkness. So, if this review reaches one person and that one person has the opportunity and good fortune to meet and talk to Emily, I would be happy for that one person, as that person would meet an excellent stranger, therapist, counselor, and maybe a friend. Thanks again Emily, I wish nothing but the best, CB.

is exceptionally skilled at what she does, yet makes each session feel effortless. I could feel she truly cared for me. She taught me practical coping mechanisms while also helping me discover who I was and why I should love every part of myself. I highly recommend Emily Gilliam.
