General Physicians are placed in the right position to identify any physical or psychological issues that a patient is undergoing. Being in the Primary care, GPs and pediatricians are the first points of contact for individuals and families alike. Hence it becomes easier to identify any problem even at initial stages while on a routine checkup. In such case GPs trained in counseling provide advice to find a solution and help the patient. This works well for simpler issues in just a few appointments. For instance, initial stages of alcoholic addiction or any form of stress and do on.For more complex scenarios, the General Physicians refer their patient to a specialist in psychotherapy to conduct more time intensive and exhaustive counseling sessions. The therapist then can take up the patient upon referral from the GP under their care. This may be any severe trauma or abuse faced by a patient.Therapists can provide counseling sessions for individuals, children or families based on scientifically approved methods. Each session may last somewhere between 30 to 90 minutes. The patient will slowly progress and benefit from the sessions over a period the counselor encourage them to open up and address concerns/issues in a systematic phased out manner. As the sessions go on, the established trust between the therapist and patient fosters improvement in patients situation. As a result, the Patients situation will improve gradually and will be able to be on their own without any cause for concern.
