"Untangling your past, empowering your present, redefining your future.". Mystic Counseling Services – Stonington,CT The primary benefit of counseling is that it gives a person a safe and secure place to talk to another person,and counselors are trained to be able to listen to and understand anything,no matter how strange or unusual it may seem at first. All human beings need a safe and secure place where they can talk openly and freely to another person without fear of being judged,and most people,let alone anxiety-sufferers,have nowhere like this to go. Women tend to find a relationship like this much easier than men,and for men,in most cases their spouse serves as their sounding board. Having somewhere where one can go without fear of being judged releases an incredible amount of emotional pressure and stress,which allows the person to be happier and more relaxed; this goes for all people,and doubly so for anxiety sufferers.
