What would happen if someone asked me why would someone need individual counseling? That’s a good question, and a question I get asked quite often.
This is because it really doesn’t matter whether or not you are in need of one, and it does matter which one you choose. There is no such thing as an “all things considered” decision. There really isn’t anything “all things considered.”
When we make decisions, we have to ask ourselves why would someone want to make that decision. And for the most part it comes down to one of two things.
One is that there is something I can’t see that would tell me what to do. Sometimes we get so caught up with the facts that we lose sight of why we are doing the things we are doing. And when this happens we can fall into a trap and do things that we don’t want to do. But this is just one example of this.
The other example is that the person wants to try to do the right thing by others and to be kind to them. If a person was kind to me, I would want that person to be kind to others. And if a person was kind to me they probably would want to be kind to others. So when we make choices about others, it really depends on what it is that we are doing and what it is that we are seeing.
Now then, that is just one important question that you need to answer before you decide to choose one of the many different types of therapy available. Hopefully it helps you make an informed decision.} Another important question is why do we need help? If we find that we are having trouble with our relationships and we don’t feel that we can take care of those problems on our own, it really makes sense to seek out professional help.
There are counseling agencies all over the place that help people through various issues. But it doesn’t hurt to try to see if you can find one that will give you one on one treatment and advice from someone who has been there before. They have a wealth of experience and can guide you in making good decisions.
So the next time someone asks why would someone need individual counseling, think about what you are really looking for. Think about the reasons that you have to get it done and if they make sense to you.
