Frequently Asked Questions About Counseling Services
Counseling services are helpful resources to many people in need of help to get better. Some people need marital counseling, while others need anger management counseling. Many people seek out counseling services in their area to feel better about their situation, get help and advice for their condition, and improve their behavior. Speak with a qualified professional about your drug abuse problems, couple problems or crisis problems. They can help. Here are some frequently asked questions you may find yourself asking when searching for a counseling service.

What kind of training does the counselor have?
Since there are so many kinds of counseling services around, it’s best to narrow down your search by specialty. Look for counselors that boast the background you need help with. If you feel you need medication for your mental health condition, you may want to enlist the help of a psychiatrist, as they are medical doctors who can prescribe medication. Social workers are specifically trained to work with families and children. And group counselors specialize in conducting group therapy with others in your same condition.

Would a male or female counselor be best?
While both males and female professionals are often both equally as qualified to dispense advice on anything from marriage and divorce to addiction and cognitive behavior, you may feel a personal connection to one gender over another. Perhaps you’re a woman who would feel more comfortable talking about your grief with another woman. Or maybe you’re a man who would feel better speaking with a woman, who may offer a nurturing and comfortable persona.

Is my insurance accepted?
Not all reasons for therapy are covered under your insurance plan. You may have to get medically evaluated by your doctor first, who can then recommend counseling. Often times, insurance companies need a doctor’s referral in order to cover part or all of a counseling session.
