Individual Counseling is a POWERFUL and INTIMATE journey. It is powerful because when it is effective, it is utterly ‘Life Changing’! Powerful in the sense that YOU are empowered to be who you were meant to be. That you begin to live the life you were intended to live, by accepting your strengths and vulnerabilities.
It is intimate, because it is about you being vulnerable and honest with yourself, in the presence of another human being.
Your therapist, needs to be competent and caring. Your Therapist has to have the ability to help you ACCEPT yourself, and at the same time, help you CHANGE those aspects of your personality that are hurting you and hurting the people you love.
Individual counseling is about being is a safe environment where you can EXPLORE the results of the choices you have made that are causing you pain.
We all need to change.
The difficulty is knowing ‘what’ it is in our personalities that keep us TRAPPED and keeps us stuck in the past.
We need an EXPERT that can show us those areas of self- rejection and denial, that keep us from growing and becoming the great person we desire to become.
Then we need assistance in learning ‘HOW’ to make those changes.
This doesn’t have to take months to develop.
It may take a longer time for some, but for others, therapy can be brief, and ‘to the point’. We can get to the ANSWERS quickly and efficiently! The ~choices, ~steps and ~attitudes that we need to nurture and develop, will in time help us become that GENUINE and LOVING person that we know we have been created to become.
