Counseling is gaining popularity and becoming more widely accepted. However, many people still aren’t exactly sure what counseling is or who should pursue it. In summary, counseling enables people, like you and like me, to resolve or manage issues that negatively affect our mental health and well-being. Counseling, or therapy (also known as psychotherapy), is conducted by individuals who have knowledge, skills, experience, and training in the mental health field. They might have the following titles:
- Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)
- Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)
- Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)
- Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)
To put it simply, counselors, psychologists, and psychotherapists spend many years studying the field of mental health and acquiring the proper training, education, and experience to help people in this important area.
Everyone should consider talking to a counselor. Counseling can benefit those who are struggling with severe issues like mental illness as well as those with milder problems, such as feelings of uncertainty about an upcoming move. Whatever it is you’re dealing with, a mental health professional can offer their professional guidance and support.

Why Are Mental Health Services Important?
There are various obstacles that, unfortunately, prevent people from pursuing or receiving mental health help. One of those challenges is our tendency to downplay our problems. For example, someone who starts to experience anxiety in certain situations might brush it off as normal—even as it grows more prevalent and more difficult to control.
This is what happens with the majority of mental health problems. They grow bigger or more serious when they go unaddressed. Instead of hoping that these problems will pass on their own, we need to take steps to manage them and find a solution for resolving them.
Mental health professionals specialize in helping people do just that. Counselors, therapists, and psychologists can help you…
- Talk openly and honestly about your problem
- Better understand the challenge at hand and how it affects you
- Manage the problem better, using a variety of therapeutic techniques
- Develop and utilize coping mechanisms for current and future problems
- Live a happier, healthier life
