Counselors are certified psychologists, therapists, or other medical professionals.
Professional Mental Health Counselors help patients that are suffering from depression, severe suicidal thoughts, stress, severe grief, and many addictions. A mental health counselor helps their patients deal with their grief and mental instability by eliminating or improving these issues. Counselors carefully listen, observe, and test their patients each time they meet to create a treatment plan best suitable for the patient in need. Counselors also prepare their patients to deal with issues after counseling and/or treatment has ended.
Counselors perform a series of interviews and use that information to provide constructive advice to improve the patient's health. Some incorporate spirituality into therapeutic treatments. The goal is to address underlying psychological needs from a variety of perspectives.
