Long-Term Counseling Long-term therapy, often equated with psychotherapy, isn't any more invasive or challenging than short-term counseling, but it does provide an opportunity for development that might need to take place. Sometimes, sharing secrets or trauma takes trust, while developing skills to tackle your troubles and remain in control and emotionally healthy. Long-term counseling offers the time to build that trust, identify root causes or repetitive behaviors, and build those life skills. Some clients simply find that having a trusted listener who will be available regularly is critical to their emotional well-being. Long-term counseling is also a common tool for clients dealing with addictions or self-destructive behavior. Recurring behaviors are a difficult challenge, and many clients find regular sessions of self-examination and challenge to be their biggest help in finding the "why" behind their behaviors and overcoming. Long-term counseling may involve: Exploration of deeper issues Life-Skill Development Coping-Skill Development Regular Feedback and Self-Examination Long-term counseling clients are often dealing with: Food Addiction Substance Addiction Self-Destructive Behavior Severe Doubt or Social Anxiety Severe Lack of Self Esteem Abusive Relationships Most clients do not begin with long-term therapy, but instead start with single or short-term sessions where we will identify, investigate, and analyze emotional issues. Together, we can make a plan for your mental health, how long and how often we should meet, what our goals are, and our strategy for getting there. Long-term mental health goals are achievable.
