Counseling is professional guidance to help a person, family, or
group of individuals recognize and deal with issues that are interfering with
their mental well-being. Counseling involves regular meetings (sessions) with a
qualified counselor, such as a psychiatrist, psychologist, licensed
professional counselor, or clinical social worker.
Counseling, which may also be called psychotherapy or therapy, can
be done on an individual, family, or group basis.
