LPC counseling refers to the counseling provided by an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) to identify and resolve mental, behavioral, and emotional disorders. LPCs help people cope with potential mental health challenges by developing essential skills for daily living. It allows clients to foster successful relationships, control anger, manage low self-esteem and come over grief. Depending upon the disorder, a counselor can work with individuals or groups.
“It requires at least a Master’s degree and supervised clinical experience to be a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).”
How does counseling work?
During counseling, an LPC mainly utilizes “talk therapy” to first assess the condition’s root cause. After calm listening to the client’s issues, he provides feedback regarding the condition. Next, he devises different strategies based on the client’s abilities to cope with the mental health issue. To ensure complete recovery, an LPC also evaluates the counseling progress and then adjusts the following sessions.
However, counseling can take some time for symptoms to improve because an LPC uses different approaches for different conditions.
Different types of counseling:
Based on the mechanism of working, there’re different types of counseling, including:
- Individual counseling deals with the issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, loss, uncontrolled anger, career, parenting, and other factors affecting an individual’s mental health.
- Group counseling assists in awareness about coping techniques for anger management, addiction, domestic violence, and others.
- Couple counseling refers to a guide for setting appropriate boundaries, practical expectations, resolving conflicts, and many others.
- Family counseling facilitates people resolving issues affecting family relationships.
