    Importance of Counseling  Skills

    "Accept corrections and you’ll improve and


    - Israelmore Ayivor

    Counseling is a process. In psychology, counseling works in different domains of life. Sometimes, counseling is sought to seek support, other times the release of emotional burden and stressors. The purpose of counseling intends to improve human beings’ daily life functioning.

    The areas that are targeted in  counseling may be one of the following: relationships, work- life, health conditions management, academic performance issues, etc. The counseling ranges from peoples’ problems on a minor level to resolving major challenges. This includes (but is not limited to) low mood, issues with time management, handling pain, getting rid of grief, overcoming an accident injury, etc.

    Being a trained counseling expert is a role that is not only limited to dealing with the clinical population diagnosed with one or more diseases and disorders. The experts in the field offer supervised training to those who are interested in working as a counselor.

    1. History of Counseling as a Career: Why it Matters?


    "Development is not about learning how to counsel

    but about becoming the kind of person who can


    - Dave Mearns

    Since human beings  came  into  existence, the individuals, families, and communities are striving to reach innovative ideas that might end their suffering and push them out of their difficult situations. Counseling as a reciprocal phenomenon originated to cater to the services wherever social life is breathing. The universe is itself social and the interaction is carried out all the time between all those who are part of this whole. From generation to generations, the habit of sharing problems and attaining advice is the value of social groups.

    This is similar to feeding the survival of each other. Human beings are known as social animals. This means they do need certain socialization, support, help, advice, and guidance to live a healthy life. Overall, counseling is one of the lifestyles that binds human beings’ body, mind, and soul into integrity. This is not only associated with someone’s mental health but the way of living, way of thinking, way of feeling, way of acting, and way of believing. The very first element of the human entity that becomes flexible and changes during the counseling process is the belief system.

    Philosophers who gave birth to  the  subject of psychology were well aware of the importance of skills that saves humanity from self-destructive thoughts. Plato and Socrates brought up the habit of questioning for clarity of the human mind and awareness. This founded the prevention of health issues (physical and mental) and the promotion of a healthy life.

    Nearly 70 years ago from today, when the industrial revolution arose, modern world physicians enhanced the utility of spreading education about psychiatric illnesses and their treatment experts. Then, the practice of healing shifted from spiritual healers to researchers and medical practitioners  for the welfare of human beings. The development of mental asylums, hospitals, and other public care services was seen. Today, millions of adults, children, teens, and the elderly have experienced a mental health issue worldwide.

    The knowledge has flown to the legal and criminal justice systems, improving the effectiveness of almost all professionals regardless of the field they are working in.

    Examples are seen in the need for counseling among doctors, students, teachers, fire busters, businessmen, social workers, diagnostic facilities, and other medical health providers/centers. One of the most common problems we can name among all peoplewhoneedcounselingis‘burnoutmanagement’. This elaborates the scope of counseling as a career choice for someone who has accumulated a lot of compassion, courage, and motivation.
