The nature of the co-counseling session opens up the possibility for people to get in touch with emotions that they would avoid in any other circumstance. A belief in the value of working with emotions has become a core focus of the approach. Co-counseling training emphasizes methods for accessing and working with emotions, and co-counselors aim to develop and improve emotional competence through the practice.
Co-counseling works to clear negative thought patterns and behaviors from the clients mind.
Co-counseling can be used to treat people with the following conditions:
- Low self-esteem
- Feelings of loneliness
- Anxiety and fears
- Lack of motivation
