Behavioural counseling is a process in which a professional works with an individual patient to try and reinforce desirable behaviours and stop the ones that might be hampering his/her mental peace and stability. In this process, the counsellor would not only provide ongoing care to the people seeking counseling but will also talk to the person directly so that they can seep into the issues they’ve been facing that can be discussed and treated well. A central part of this therapy is rewarding positive behaviour and punishing negative behaviour and the people around the person seeking therapy play a very important role in helping the individual to cope with his/her urge to practice a certain set of behaviour (s). Especially in the case of children, parents must help to reinforce this in a child’s day-to-day life. The premise behind behavioural therapy is that behaviour can be both learnt and unlearnt. The goal is to help the individuals learn new, positive behaviours that will minimize or eliminate the issue. A lot of effort is still made to unlearn the unwanted or negative behavioural traits. Behavioural therapy is very helpful at an early stage of the problem. It becomes more difficult with time as the behaviours make impressions on an individual’s mind.
