Models face all sorts of issues in their industry, and the need for counseling to be integrated into their structure is very important. For every modeling brand or team, it is important that there is a counseling unit to cater for the mental health needs of all the models under its care.
Due to the fact that models are in the eye of the public, you can correctly guess that much is expected from them. So, there would be lots of commendations and criticisms from their fans and critics alike.
For instance, a model could perform optimally today, and receive lots of praises from everyone. While him or she could perform below standard, and receive lots of harsh words from the public.
A good number of times, these words get to the models and it makes them anxious and depressed against their next performance. This is where the counselor comes into play. If there is no counselor, there is a likely chance that the model would resort to substance abuse to boost his or her confidence.
However, a counselor teaches you how to perform better without the use of any substance. If the model has been abusing either drugs or alcohol, it is still the responsibility of the counselor to make sure that the model gets back on track.
Also, a counselor is in the best position to offer words of encouragement and motivation to a model who is dejected. Certainly, the disposition of a model can never remain the same after a visit to a counselor. The reason for this is, counselors are highly trained professionals who are well versed in psychology.
So, they know the reason for all sorts of feelings, thoughts and emotions and they teach us how to manage them effectively.
Conclusively, the place of a counseling in the modeling industry should not be left void because it contributes largely to the short-term and long-term success of the models.
