Who should not get Counselling?

Counseling may not be suitable for individuals who are unwilling to participate voluntarily, facing immediate crises requiring urgent intervention, experiencing severe mental health disorders requiring specialized care, not committed to addressing substance abuse issues, or mandated by legal authorities without cooperation. In such cases, alternative forms of support or interventions tailored to individual needs may be more appropriate.
