What Is the Goal of Counseling Services?
To provide emotional support Ideally, counseling will act as a sounding board. Most importantly, it is a safe space where you feel heard and validated. These are early experiences that have a great impact on our self-esteem and ability to form healthy relationships. As a counselor, it's my goal to help you talk about and connect with your feelings so you experience what's like to be validated and heard, whether you're here with a partner or by yourself it will strengthen your sense of trust and connection.
To educate. It might not seem like it at first, but education is a major part of counseling. In relationship counseling, you and your partner can learn communication skills, relationship skills, conflict resolution skills, and more. Individually, you may work to learn self-acceptance, mindfulness, and healthy coping mechanisms. The list goes on because part of the reason why we become emotionally overwhelmed or act out our feeling through unhealthy behaviors is because we don't fully understand or know how to manage our emotions. Hence, part of counseling involves developing an emotional skill set.
To help you practice. Once you learn these skills, the next step is putting them into practice. It's a process, it takes time. Like building muscle or working out at the gym, it is something you need to continually work on. The right counselor can help you do that. You'll need support through the process of change. It's easy to get discouraged, to experience resistance from those around you and to go back to your old ways. It's important to have someone to remind you of why you started, of the progress you have made, etc. Change is hard. But there are plenty of beautiful discoveries you can make in the process with the right counselor by your side.

Counseling services can help you work on important relationship skills outside romantic relationships.
