Counseling... what does it even mean?

Sometimes the thought of counseling makes people nervous, but it doesn’t have to be. There’s nothing wrong with inviting a “third person”, someone outside of a situation, for an objective conversation. As humans, we were meant to live in community with each other. But in our hyper-complex, fast paced society, finding the right community can often be difficult. It’s possible to be surrounded by people but feel incredibly alone and lost. Life doesn’t always make sense. Stuff happens. Regardless of the situation, every single person on the planet needs a caring and understanding person who will listen. So when you break it down that way, counseling isn’t strange at all. In fact, it’s how we were wired. It’s brilliant, natural and often necessary.

Don’t worry. We’ll pair you up with the person who might best relate to you. See, all of us here have struggled in different ways too, and it’s those experiences that have lead us here to work at thethirdchair. Whatever you’re struggling with, we’ll do our best to help you get through it and be a better and stronger person for it.
