Self-knowledge is a work of a lifetime. In this “journey”, counseling, personal development, as well as any specialized psychological support activity clarifies and facilitates this initiatory path. Confrontation with new events, due to the transition to different stages of life (adolescent-young-adult) activates new dimensions of personality, which you may still be unaware of.
We must not wait for the problems to worsen in order to fix them. We can prevent them so that we don’t have to suffer too much. Psychological and social anxiety therapy has the role of prevention and guidance. Unlike psychotherapy, psychological counseling involves a more directive approach, with a stronger informational component and a significant role in prevention. It does not involve profound personality changes and is addressed to those who want to function better in personally and professionally. It involves fewer meetings with the specialist and involves problem-centered interventions.
In the US, in 2020, the average cost of counseling is $60-$120, for one session, but the cost can also be lower or higher, because it depends on several factors: the number of sessions you book (booking more sessions can bring you discounts), health insurance coverage (if you are insures, you might be able to pay only $20 per session), the therapist you choose and the type of therapy (local or online).
