People often seek out counselors when something bad happens in their lives and they do not know how to deal with it. Therefore, by seeking the services of a counselor, these individuals are looking for assistance to deal with their challenges and struggles (Schofield, 2019). Since intimate friendships can add immense value to people’s lives, counselors should integrate this concept into their practice. When working with clients, counselors can inform them of the benefits of having intimate friends and how to form these friendships (Schofield, 2019). To do this, counselors can give real-life examples of these friendships to demonstrate to clients how intimate friends can serve as vital support systems to clients. After doing this, counselors should monitor the progress clients are making toward achieving this objective (Schofield, 2019). By monitoring them, a counselor will get a chance to discover and address the challenges clients are experiencing when they are trying to form intimate friendships.
