PSYCHOTHERAPY is a POWERFUL and INTIMATE journey.
Psychotherapy is powerful, because it is a tool by which, when effective, is life changing. Through effective counseling you are empowered to make better decisions about your life, which strengthens your self-esteem. It is powerful because of the changes you see developing in your life which help you become the person you were meant to be. You begin to accept your strengths and vulnerabilities.
It is intimate, because you are learning to trust someone who is helping you be vulnerable and honest with yourself. That other person, your therapist, needs to be competent and caring. One of the goals of individual counseling is finding a balance between accepting oneself and seeing the areas of one’s life that need to change. Recognizing the areas of one’s life that have been hurting the people we love, is key in becoming a responsible adult.
The experience of Counseling is about being is a safe environment where you can EXPLORE the aspects of your personality that are causing you pain. We all need to change. The difficulty is knowing `what’ it is in our personalities that keeps us TRAPPED and keeps us repeating the DRAMA of our past. We need an expert that can show us those areas of self- rejection and denial.
Then, we need assistant 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 goals, steps and attitudes that we need to nurture and develop, will in time help us become that GENUINE and LOVING person that we have always desired to become and have known that we can become.
