The focus of counseling is on how you see your world; your sensory experience of living creates mental impressions through your body. This world tends to be full of darkness unless you learn how to look at things differently.
You will learn to cope with your stresses with specific mental tools. Having a different perspective shown to you will ease the decision-making process of your trying situation. No one can truly understand you, yet we can relate to you based on our excessive experience helping people with similar problems.
