Who seeks counseling and why?
Counseling offers a safe place to explore issues that are affecting you, get help figuring out what your options are, and develop ideas about how to handle different situations. A counselor can provide objective feedback, offer some new ways to cope with situations, provide information about other resources, or just simply listen while you sort through an issue out loud.
