Counseling can sometimes have a negative impact on people.
There are so many meanings to define counseling but to me it means help. I think many people were scared wanting to talk about the realness of taking care of their own mental health. I grew up not realizing how to take care of my mental health because I had “friends” who saw it as a bad thing. I was always kept to myself and disregarded it and it set me up for a lot of bad choices. Only realizing once I came to college did I come to terms to be open and really learn who I am. I am still learning but I learned more about myself within the last 2-3 years than I did in all my years on this world. So, to say what counseling means to me, it means that to help people in whatever way counselors can in the mental health community. Counseling means not only healing we and the way it affects others but learning just a little bit more about the individual.
Counseling can sometimes have a negative impact on people. This comes from the bad views of social media and the projection of tv shows or movies. I hope to be the change. Now granted I wouldn’t say all of the big screen has had a negative impact. I have seen hope in more recent publications which shows a different side of the community. I would have to tell new people that it is okay to ask for help. It can be for almost anything. Sometimes for small or maybe major life changes. It is a new way of seeing things from a different perspective that we may never have thought of.
I think counseling differs from all other because it focuses on the individual. While all fields can focus on individuals and can also do groups of people but to me counseling becomes more personal. It goes deeper into the individual. With life coaching and mentorship, that focuses mainly on careers or one aspect of the individual’s life. Psychology can focus on just the facts. Psychiatry can focus on the medical side, but it can maybe not consider the lifestyle. I see counseling as focusing on the individual and what I can do to help improve different points in their life whether it be small or major changes.
