A common misconception about mental health counseling is that the primary focus is mental illness and that an individual must be diagnosed with a disorder to participate in sessions. Mental illness is a growing concern with nearly 20% of the population experiencing mental illness according to Mental Health America – nearly 50 million Americans. However, therapy doesn’t just treat mental illness. Therapy can be a pro-active way to prevent the escalation of mental health symptoms, as it often consists of utilizing assessments such as personality and career assessments, as well as life transition and relationship satisfaction scales, in order to help assess for areas of growth and support and to raise self-awareness in clients.
Meeting with a therapist can benefit just about anyone. Sessions can be utilized to provide accountability for goals ranging from weight loss or lifestyle changes to goals related to career, relationships, or spirituality. Sessions can provide personal insight and emotional support and can even inspire personal growth that individuals don’t even recognize is needed. Couples can utilize sessions as a proactive way to address concerns or simply work on improving their communication and connection. Consulting services can also be used for mental health providers to process their own emotions and reactions to their work or to gain additional insight into their own clinical work.
