Mental Health counseling or psychotherapy involves the use of therapeutic techniques to alleviate symptoms of mental health disorders.
Mental health counseling is often very effective for many common mental health disorders, such as depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, adjustment disorders, and addiction, among others. At Lighthouse Human Services and Consulting in Bangkok, we are qualified to treat the aforementioned disorders.
Psychotherapy for mental disorders is serious business and should only be offered by highly trained and licensed counselors or psychologists. Indeed, mental disorders which are untreated may lead to serious problems for those affected, such as financial problems, relationship difficulties, substance abuse, and self-harm or suicide.
Supportive counseling is effective for those who may not have a mental health disorder, but are experiencing difficulties in life that requires them to seek out some extra help.
This could be due relationship troubles, job/financial problems, adjustment difficulties, culture shock, or general life dissatisfaction, for example. Often a “life coaching” approach is often effective for those who may need a little assistance with some sort of life problem or issues that does not qualify as a mental disorder. At Lighthouse Human Services and Consulting in Bangkok, we are qualified to offer life coaching and supportive counseling, as well.
