Counseling Q & A

What is counseling?

Counseling, sometimes referred to as talk therapy, is a collaborative effort between you and a professional mental health provider to accomplish mental health, wellness, and other personal goals. 

You meet with your counselor and talk about your life, including any thoughts, emotions, or behaviors that are interfering with your ability to achieve your full potential. 

What are the different types of counseling?

Acadian Care LLC provides a wide range of counseling services for patients of all ages. In addition to individual, couple, family, and group counseling, the providers are skilled in a variety of therapeutic approaches, including:

  • Client or person-centered therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Mindfulness-based therapy
  • Play therapy

Acadian Care LLC offers customized counseling services for you, your children, and your family. Their goal is to help you resolve the issues that are holding you back from reaching your full potential and develop the mental and emotional tools you need to thrive.

What are the benefits of counseling?

You benefit in many ways from counseling. It provides a safe place and time for you to explore and confront your thoughts and feelings. Your provider can help you see your thoughts from a different perspective, which can lead to a cathartic experience. 

Counseling can also help you develop new skills, including:

  • Communication and interpersonal skills
  • Ability to change negative behaviors
  • Problem-solving and conflict resolution 
  • Stress management

Counseling can also help you find relief from anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders. Your confidence increases, and you find it easier to cope with everyday life. 

What should I expect from counseling?

During counseling, you meet with your provider and talk. Depending on your reasons for having counseling and your goals, you may talk about what’s going on in your life. 

You may talk about strategies for coping with your emotions. You may have goals that you want to achieve through counseling, and you and your provider work toward those goals when you meet. 

Acadian Care LLC also offers play-based therapy and other child-friendly counseling techniques. 

Not only are children more likely to open up while they’re engaged in an activity, but the play itself is designed to allow your provider to learn about your child’s thoughts and needs subtly and gently.
