The Counseling Journey
The power of counseling instills hope, restores faith, and reshapes our future. It is the challenges we face that offer healing and restoration. Our perspectives of life bring understanding, acceptance, and recovery. Counseling is a shared collective and collaborative professional relationship amongst the counselor and client.
With ongoing rapport-building and support, professional counselors and clients establish treatment goals and solution-focused approaches to build self-efficacy. In the words of Albert Bandura, self-efficacy is an individual’s belief in his or her ability to thrive in specific situations or accomplish prearranged tasks.
