Counselors mostly interact with patients on a one-on-one basis but it is not like they always work all on their own. They at times coordinate and consult with other medical professionals to make sure the patient gets overall treatment as needed. There are instances where patients work best under group settings. In such situations, a counselor can take help from educational professionals or other counselors to help the patient recover.
