One to One counseling
For a client facing personal difficulties, face to face counseling or one to one counseling is the best option. The client gets complete attention and guidance of the counselor. Since there is no one else to contradict or affect the opinions and thoughts of the client, he/she can share all their doubts and inhibitions clearly with the counselor. Moreover, it is easier to understand each other’s perspectives when the counselor and the client are engaged in a one to one discussion. It is the most effective method of counseling as there is no shortage of time and there is a sufficient amount of time and freedom for the client to elaborate upon all of his/her problems.
People usually tend to think that they can discuss all of their problems with their friends and family in times of distress as they know them the best. As a result, they think twice before seeking the help of a counselor to share their personal life and problems. However, expert guidance is objective in nature and concentrates only on the client’s problem, which might not be the case when sharing his/her thoughts with their friends and family. They might be subjective about their opinions towards you or your problem and may thus, give biased opinions. Getting a solution and direction to solve your problems and achieve your goal is best done by talking to a professional at an individual level.
