Sometimes the hyper-complex, hyper-connected world is confusing and overwhelming. Sometimes personal issues may seem too difficult to handle alone and you just need to talk things out with someone who understands to find solutions. Personal counseling focuses on the individual’s immediate or near future concerns before issues become problems.

Concerns can include:
  • Relationships with family, a partner, friends, or coworkers
  • Big life changes and challenges
  • Advancing in your career or dealing with professional challenges
  • Heightened stress or anxiety
  • Dealing with difficult people
  • Moving to a new place
  • Grief, loss, health issues, or care-taking

Personal Counseling FAQ

“Counseling” and “psychotherapy” are often used interchangeably. Although there are many similarities between the two, there are also important differences.

Typically, we recommend counseling when you are dealing with specific issues or complicated situations in the present, such as career or family related, grief, health issues, or any events that have caused you stress.

Counseling is great when you need someone to speak with to sort out issues and make sense of things to move forward.

On the other hand, psychotherapy helps you explore past trauma or issues that weigh you. Psychotherapy requires a highly trained practitioner and usually requires longer and deeper introspective work.

Counseling is for you if you need advice and support to fix issues or situations in your personal or work life.

By exploring all the ins and outs of problematic situations or issues your counselor helps you find ways to resolve them and move forward.

Action and behavior-focused, your counselor helps you be proactive in creating solutions and changing behavior that does you a disservice.

Typically, counseling involves a shorter period of time than psychotherapy and is focused on the present.

However, with therapy, there’s often a part of counseling. 

There are many advantages to online counseling, including:

  • Privacy & confidentiality,
  • Increased flexibility and convenience,
  • Time-saving with video conferencing from the place of your choice,
  • Available from anywhere in the world,
  • The comfort of your own space,
  • Personal connection with your counselor.

Personal counseling is effective via video-conferencing as it enables your counselor to pick up on all your verbal and non-verbal cues.

Online counseling has been proven to be as effective as in-person sessions. Furthermore, people are often more consistent with online appointments as it offers more flexibility.

Although internet connections can sometimes be spotty if your network access is stable then you can have quality personal counseling online.
