What is Counseling Anyway?

What is counseling? Well, several sources can be used to come up with a comprehensive definition for the term. Many believe that counseling is somewhere to “talk about your feelings,” or even a safe place to resolve conflict with a significant other. What people may not know is that counseling is more about developing a relationship with someone who can motivate and facilitate change while challenging some of the irrational thinking patterns that may be negatively affecting a person’s life. It takes a great deal of work, and if done correctly, can help bring about a lasting change. Self awareness is really the key to changing some of the challenging behavioral patterns that we so easily get into. The goal of counseling is ultimately to improve the quality of your daily life. With the right insight, and the appropriate tools in place, you too can live the life that you deserve.

New Years Resolutions

What is your New Year’s Resolution? Perhaps you have committed to eating better, or maybe you have purchased a gym membership. Like most of the country your New Year’s resolution may be revolved around physical health, but what about your emotional health? The American Psychological Association reports that most people, including children, are currently living with moderate to high stress levels. While exercising and healthy eating habits can help reduce the negative effects of stress on the body, external stressors still exist. Bills still need to be paid, and family, work, and other responsibilities still need your time. Counseling can help you deal with the stresses of every day life, and may empower you to enjoy your life in the now. The mind/body/spirit connection is important when working on the self, so this new year do not forget to attend to your emotional needs as well so that you can have an overall fulfilling life!
