Individual counseling

consists of meeting one-on-one with a trained counselor (counseling psychologist/therapist) to discuss specific concerns in a confidential setting. The aim of counseling is to increase the client’s sense of well-being by providing her/him with the tools to resolve life problems in a positive manner. The counselor will work with the client collaboratively, identity her/his concerns, work through difficult issues, highlight causes, explore options, develop strategies, and increase self-awareness.

To ensure that therapeutic goals and actions make sense within the context of the client’s life, her/his unique experiences will be central to the discussion at all times. While the work done in a session sets the foundation for change, the work done outside the session is vitally important in developing new skills and sustaining change. The truth is that almost any problem that stands between the person and the goals, priorities, and commitments of her/his life may be improved with the help of a skilled, experienced, and trained counselor.

Some of the most common problems and challenges that often motivate people to seek out the help of a professional counselor includes, but is not limited to, the following:

o Depression
