Counseling Q & A

What is Personal Counseling? 
Personal counseling is a professional relationship designed to help you with personal problems. The counseling relationship differs from both social friendships and patient-doctor relationships. Instead of giving specific advise, counselors serve as skilled listeners who help you to clarify issues and to deal more effectively with your problems. Counselors work with you; they don't do things to you. 
 
What if I start feeling suicidal or very upset or as if I can't cope?
