Do you think that group or one on one counseling works?
I personally believe that it does as long as a professional is the one doing the counseling! What do you think?
I believe that it does. It gives you someone that you can vent to without any of it going back to whoever it's about. I can be a really big stress reliever.
I think is depends on the individual who is seeking counselling. I had both when I was going through bereavement. I found that group counselling helped me better because I was able to share my emotions of grief with others who were experiencing the same feelings as me.
Yes. You just need to find the counselor that fits your needs.
I think counseling works but I also think it depends on the individual and the counseling needed.
For instance someone grieving or going through drug counseling may find that hearing other people stories is beneficial and helps them heal. These people may also not want to sit in an office with one person and "dwell" on the epxerience.
However if someone is dealing with a very personal matter IE sexual abuse, mental illness etc. they may find comfort in a one on one basis.
It really all depends on the situation, however I do think counseling can work if the patient is able to find the right counselor, is open to it and there of their own will (rather then court ordered, family forced etc.).

Good morning!! In my opinion the effectiveness of counseling (group or individual) is largely dependent on the mentality of the person in counseling. If they are open to exploring themselves, being honest and making changes then counseling can be VERY effective! If not, it's simply a waste of time. Also, group counseling can be best utilized when everyone involved not only are dealing with similar issues, but are honest enough to allow others to grow from their experiences. Hope that helped!!
Yes. As long as you are going to the correct counselor. What I mean is, it's like making sure you aren't going to a foot doctor for a headache. You make a mistake by diagnosing yourself. If you match the problem with the proper counselor, it can work wonders. If not it can be a waste of time.
As far as being a professional, I'm not sold on that. In some cases, like mine, being an alcoholic, no one can relate to my problem better than someone that's been there. Experience is priceless. I can tell another alcoholic things that run through my mind that only another alcoholic can understand. Things you can't learn in a book.
No matter what you choose, if it works for you, it's right.
I would think that one on one would work best. People can feel more open that way, and the counselor is allowed to focus on your issues better.
I think one on one counseling is the way to go. When taking part in group sessions not only is it less likely for the counselor to spend enough time on you, but you might not want to be as forthcoming with other people around.

I believe if more couples were to go through premarital counselling they would stand a better chance of marital success than those that who do not.
