Counseling Q & A

What is counseling?

Counseling is a talking therapy that can take many different forms. A team of Masters and PhD-level clinicians provide counseling services at Psych Atlanta, including specialists in:

  • Grief counseling
  • Couples counseling
  • Family therapy
  • Parenting education and support therapy
  • Child and adolescent counseling
  • Stress management counseling
  • Work and career counseling

The Psych Atlanta specialist counselors are experts in a range of approaches to counseling, including insight-oriented psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), short-term problem-focused therapy, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).

There are many reasons why you might need counseling. Generally speaking, counseling can help you through issues in your life that you’re struggling to deal with on your own. 

For instance, you might be finding it hard to get over the death of a loved one. Grief counseling provides a safe place for you to express your feelings in the presence of someone who understands the grieving process and the challenges it presents.

What is couples therapy?

Couples can find themselves trapped in a conflict that they can’t resolve themselves because of one or more issues, such as:

  • Financial problems
  • Dishonesty
  • Miscommunication
  • Loss of trust
  • Religious differences
  • Infidelity
  • Chronic illness
  • Addiction
  • Child rearing

Couples counseling provides a way for you to address these problems constructively and help you preserve your relationship.

What family therapies are available?

Parents and children can benefit from counseling when family life becomes a battleground. Your specialist counselor can help you understand each other and learn how to communicate without the aggression and defensiveness common in parent-child relationships.

Parents can also attend parenting education and support therapy sessions at Psych Atlanta, to learn the skills and strategies that help them manage the complex task of being a parent. 

Children and adolescents need specialist therapists who can communicate with the child and get them to open up, often through play therapy or art therapy.

Can counseling help me with work problems and stress?  

Stress management counseling might be appropriate for you if you have chronic stress that’s causing physical and emotional problems in your life. Stress can affect family and work relationships and cause serious health problems, so learning how to eliminate unnecessary stress and manage unavoidable forms of stress can make a significant difference to your well-being.

Working life brings its own problems, and if issues at work are impacting on your mental health, work and career counseling can help guide you through difficult times. You can also learn how to balance all the responsibilities in your life.

If you have any challenges in your life that you can’t work through with your loved ones and colleagues, counseling could provide the light at the end of the tunnel. Call Psych Atlanta today to schedule an appointment, or use the online form to get in touch.
