Different Types of Adult Counseling
There are various methodologies when it comes to receiving therapy. Adult counseling sessions do not necessarily need to be confined to one-to-one interactions. We may request the presence of other family members or spouse in order to administer proper treatment to the patient. Additionally, therapy can be done either individually or in a group setting. Participating in group counseling along with other similarly afflicted patients can provide a sense of community acceptance, which can be therapeutic in itself. Group counseling also removes the feelings of isolation, so the patient can take comfort in knowing there are other persons going through the same problems.
However, individual therapy can be more targeted to a person’s specific needs and successes, without competing with the group dynamic. It is important to have a discussion about which type of setting(s) may work best for you when you begin treatment.
