A counselor provides support and guidance to individuals, couples, families, and groups. Counselors work in a variety of settings to help people work through or overcome their personal, social and psychological challenges. A counselor who offers primarily mental and behavioral health counseling may be known as a mental health counselor or therapist. Guidance counselors help people with their educational and career goals.

  • Provide individual, group, family, and couples/marriage counseling
  • Provide school and career planning guidance
  • Advocate for patients and certain populations, such as abused women, children, and the disabled, to help them overcome institutional and social barriers
  • Perform risk assessments and personality tests
  • Evaluate and develop counseling plans for their patients, re-evaluating and modifying these plans as needed
  • Provide coping skills and therapeutic techniques to patients, such as breathing techniques, talk therapy, and the use of visual imagery
