Clients come to counseling for various reasons. In my experience with the clients, some of them just needed time and space for them to be heard because they did not have that resource with others in their life. Their friends and family could be great support but couldn’t necessarily offer professional help such as treatment. Some people, including myself, may struggle with things they are not able to express clearly. Some may be just confused about life and need some coaching from the counselors.
