Counseling can simply be sharing your thoughts and feelings in confidence with a trained
counselor who is objective and a good listener. This is often helpful when you have
decisions to make. Sometimes counseling may help you to change your behavior in order
to deal more effectively with a problem. You may become aware of strengths and resources
you can use to your benefit. At other times, counseling may help by giving you
certain types of information, or by teaching you new skills. Counseling may help you
see yourself and others in a different light. This is not to say that counseling is
always easy. Successful counseling may mean you will become aware of feelings and
behaviors that are not particularly comfortable or effective for you. With the help
and support of a trained counselor, you can learn to confront such feelings and behaviors
so you can make changes that will lead to a more satisfying life.
