What is counseling?

At Calm Psych, counseling involves a professional relationship with a trained counselor. Together, you explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. 

It promotes self-understanding, personal growth, and problem-solving skills. Through empathetic listening and guidance, your practitioner supports you in navigating challenges, achieving goals, and enhancing well-being.

How does a counseling session work?

During a counseling session, your Calm Psych therapist creates a safe and nonjudgmental environment where you can freely express your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. 

Sessions typically begin with your counselor asking open-ended questions to understand your concerns and goals. They may also use various therapeutic techniques, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), or psychodynamic therapy, tailored to your needs.

What can counseling address and treat?

Counseling can address a wide range of mental health issues, including anxiety disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders, substance misuse, and relationship problems. 

It can also help you cope with life transitions, grief, stress, and low self-esteem.

Will I need ongoing counseling to achieve success?

The need for ongoing counseling depends on your circumstances and goals. While some may benefit from regular sessions to maintain emotional well-being and personal growth, others may find occasional or short-term counseling sufficient. 

You can achieve success through various support systems, including counseling, self-care practices, and social connections. Your provider helps you discover what works best for you.

What are the benefits of counseling?

Counseling offers many benefits. At Calm Psych, you’ll be in a supportive and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment. It can help you gain insight into your behaviors and thought patterns, develop coping skills, and learn healthy ways to manage your stress and emotions. 

Counseling can also improve your communication and interpersonal skills, enhancing your relationships and social support networks.

In addition, it can reduce symptoms of mental health disorders, prevent the escalation of mental health issues, and reduce the risk of relapse.
