What is a counseling session like?
At Thrive Albuquerque, our counselors believe that the direction of sessions should based on your needs. For example:
If you are having panic attacks, you may learn skills to manage panic attacks.
If you are struggling with drinking too much, you may learn about why you may be drinking in the first place or why your brain craves alcohol on a biological level.
If you are having trouble finding and maintaining a healthy relationship, your Thrive counselor may discuss the patterns you engage in when you are in a relationship.
Certain parts of therapy are more structured (such as the initial information-gathering process) and are used to identify treatment goals. Ultimately, it is you, the client, who collaborates with your therapist to choose the direction your treatment will take.
