When provided by trained professionals, counseling can give great help and a profound impact on individuals, their families, and even communities. Counseling helps people get through difficult life situations, such as everyday stress, losing loved ones, divorce, and even natural disasters and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Counseling is important as it provides the tools to manage mental health issues such as anxiety and depression successfully. People who go through counseling with professionals are empowered to lead a fulfilling and healthy life.
In this day and age, counseling is especially important as more and more people have a mental illness; an estimated 18.3% of adults in the US have some mental disorder. Approximately 21% of people between the ages of 13 and 18 experience a mental disorder at some point during life.
Mental health problems are a big obstacle in any individual’s ability to lead a happy and fulfilling life. Mental health issues often cloud relationships, careers, and family life. More importantly, these issues cut across economic, social, and racial groups and affect people of all ages, from small children to the elderly.
Unfortunately, many people who experience mental health problems don’t turn to counseling because they are afraid they will be judged or they think their problems can’t get fixed by a stranger. Many of them also think that reaching out for professional help necessarily leads to medication.
At Neurocore, counseling specialists believe that the answers to many mental health problems can be found in our own brains and that in many cases, medication is not necessary to live a better life.
Neurocore has been successfully treating ADHD, depression, sleep disorder, anxiety, stress, and ASD by analyzing clients’ brains and creating customized programs to help address learning difficulties and facilitate success.
Neurocore pinpoints clients’ possible anxiety-triggering brain activity using advanced neurofeedback technology that includes qEEG technology and other diagnostic measures to target their clients’ depression symptoms.
Located in Boca Raton, Florida and Livonia, Michigan, Neurocore now offers counseling at all of their centers. Counseling was added to Neurocore’s list of services in order to best meet the needs of their many clients.
Who are Counselors?
Counselors are people who are trained in helping others to work through their issues. Counselors help people determine the root cause of their problems, but also to focus on healing. Whether it’s depression, anxiety, or some other mental health issue, counselors are there to guide and direct people through a variety of situations and help them focus on what really matters.
For example, counselors can also help people determine which career they are interested in and how to plan their education and job search efficiently. Because so many people get overwhelmed when confronted with big life decisions, counselors are there to walk them through the required steps and process. This way, those who go to counselors are able to make a decision and experience less stress.
Of course, there are also many other issues that counselors are helpful in. Some of these issues include guidance, employment, and mental health disorders such as depression and feelings of anxiety.
It is important to remember that, while experiencing these issues is never pleasant, reaching out for help from a trained and professional counselor doesn’t make a person weak or incompetent to live a life on their own; on the contrary, asking for help is a brave first step to resolving problems that so many people have, and it shows great maturity.
Neurocore Counseling Approach
Professional counselors at Neurocore know that the idea of counseling can be intimidating for many people. Besides helping people resolve their issues, these professionals also want to show everyone that there doesn’t have to be anything “wrong” for someone to benefit from counseling. Sometimes it’s helpful just to talk things out and have someone listen.
Neurocore specializes in providing data-driven and brain-base training programs that help adults and children improve memory, concentration, sleep and manage stress. But Neurocore’s approach to assisting people in improving their lives is a little different.
Neurocore offers each client an initial assessment that includes an optional brainwave analysis using qEEG technology, heart rate and breathing analysis, as well as other clinically-validated diagnostic tools, and a clinical interview.
Once they gather enough information based on a client’s assessment along with their concerns and goals discussed with their therapist, Neurocore professional counselors develop a client-centered therapeutic approach.
A client-centered approach at Neurocore often includes helping people see things through a different lens and providing them the best tools to address their specific situations, such as improving diet, exercise habits, sleep, and even social skills.
Neurocore therapists are highly-trained, licensed, mental health care professionals who are passionate about helping people take the next step towards improving their lives. Sometimes people might benefit from simply learning techniques to develop a calm focus when life challenges become too overwhelming.
Neurocore’s holistic approach is aimed at giving the resources that fit the unique needs of their clients while encouraging every step on this journey. Over the past few months, Neurocore therapists and counselors have been working hard on making counseling as approachable as possible: from easy scheduling to insurance coverages, Neurocore is now officially accepting counseling appointments.
If you’re already going through Neurocore’s neurofeedback program, you can continue your brain training without any disruption, or you can choose to schedule a counseling appointment and run counseling and neurofeedback sessions congruently.
If you’re new to Neurocore, you can choose to do either neurofeedback sessions, counseling, or both. All you have to do is to schedule your neurofeedback sessions and counseling sessions on different days to help prevent any brain fatigue and ensure you get the most out of each appointment.
So if you’re going through a difficult time, feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or depressed, Neurocore is here to help you with the best treatment plan for your specific needs.
