What is Counseling?
Counseling is a process of providing and exchanging information and advice to help individuals make better choices or decisions. It often involves talking things through with someone who has more experience or greater knowledge than oneself. Counselors may be professionals, such as therapists, professional counselors, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists (including clinical psychologists), life coaches (non-professionals), etc. They may also be people that one trusts enough to talk to about personal issues; these types of counselors are referred to as informal counselors. Counseling can help people cope with problems in their everyday living. Counselors have the knowledge and skills to assist other individuals who may be struggling through tough issues that affect daily life, helping them overcome these challenges one step at a time.
