What Does A Therapeutic Consultant Do For Clients?

If you are seeking information about addiction or mental health treatment, you are likely looking for help, either for yourself or your loved one. Understanding the different types of resources available can be confusing and overwhelming as there are so many options. How do you know which are the best programs to address a particular problem? Also, how can you avoid the many mistakes that families often make when they are seeking help? Of all the available resources, which will most effectively address your loved one’s needs? To help you get started, let’s address an important question you’re likely asking yourself: what is a therapeutic consultant, and how can they help me?

The Origins Of Consultants

The role of therapeutic consultants has roots in our educational system. Educational consultants originally existed to help place young people in college preparatory schools, traditional boarding schools and institutions of higher learning. This role gave way to other types of consultants, including those who now work more in behavioral health and addiction treatment. Today, therapeutic consultants, interventionists and many other types of referring professionals work with families and individuals to help them find the most effective care and support to meet their individual needs.

What are the Pros and Cons of Being a Consulting Therapist?

Choice of employment setting – Consulting therapists that work in private practice have the advantage of being able to choose the clients with which they work. This is especially true in times of recession or economic turmoil when the demand for consulting services is high.

Great income potential – Consulting therapists can command high fees, particularly those that work with large, multi-national corporations. As more experience in the field is gained and one’s reputation as an effective consulting therapist is established, the fees charged can increase dramatically.

Work on your own schedule – While there are many days of working odd hours, consulting therapists that are self-employed ultimately decide when they work. Being able to decide what days to have off and when vacations occur – and for what length of time – is a definite bonus of being a consulting therapist.
