Counselling can help resolve challenges such as:
Resolving one’s suffering isn’t the preserve of counselling treatment. Counsellors, hypnotherapists or stress management consultants don’t read a client’s mind, make judgements about them or tell them what to do, think and believe in order to reach their goals and by when. Clients have to want to heal and be 100% committed to reach the goal of well being. Some clients deal with complex/hurtful life experiences which require a little time to reach an acceptable resolution for each client.
Counselling appears to be a longer process. Some people respond better by verbalising their painful past or present experiences aloud.
to be empathetic, caring and to facilitate clients to reach their healing goals with a minimal amount of time and cost.
IN FACT in times of strife, the best investment any one can make for their own welfare is to consult a professional counsellor or hypnotherapist
Some people can resolve certain aspects of what is troubling them, might need to stop treatment and try life with what they achieved. Months/years later they may be ready to complete therapy, possibly with the help of the same therapist.
All therapies including counselling require a little time, commitment and to undertake of a period of self-exploration (which can be painful) before feeling well or ready to experience life, regardless what or who else is involved.
Having a life experience is not the cause of upset. It is what we tell ourselves about the experience which result in the pain.
Counselling can help transform lives and help us to process what we are prepared to work through.
The counsellor is merely the witness of our success.
What is the best counselling treatment ? Which style is best suited to you?
No treatment is really new, ‘a silver bullet’ or ‘the’ answer to all human problems and challenges. Some people respond better to one counselling approach than to another. The answer to the question about what would be the best treatment for a person is still up to that individual to decide for them self.
Counselling has endless titles such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Psychotherapy, Transactional Analysis all of which are talking therapies.
Counselling is performed at conscious, intellectual, analytical and behavioural levels that is the reason that they are named ‘talking therapies’.
What’ll be best for you or how many sessions you will require depends on your personality, problems presented and preferences.
A person in receipt or counselling will be doing most of the talking, while counsellors ask probing and pertinent questions (or may not speak at all). Talking about one’s problems during counselling might feel upsetting, but in time it may prove the only way to progress to recovery and necessary to clarify things to oneself for peace of mind.
For example people must verbalise:
Therapy entails client’s active participation, setting clear goals from the start, working towards these, something equal or even better from their point of view.
How counselling will affect client’s life and their loved ones is a central question treatment must address. As important for clients is taking on board what is or is not their responsibility for what goes on in their immediate or distant environments.
As human life revolves around constant change from the moment of conception, changing the ways we think and see ourselves and the world is imperative. Changing does not mean becoming someone we or others cannot recognise anymore. Humans change all the time whether we like it or not. Holding onto outmoded beliefs beyond their usefulness will cause problems.
Happiness and contentment cannot be achieved by living by other’s expectations of us. That kind of aim leads to a miserable existence. We are happy and content by determining for ourselves how we want to live, in a realistic way.
At a moment we can initiate changes and create better ways to live/enjoy our lives, appropriate to age/circumstances.
Being happy and fulfilled is not the preserve of the few, the rich or those with a small/large family. What makes life difficult is resisting inevitable change and the natural cycles of life.
Being married, single, in a relationship, having endless sums of money or as many children as we desire are no guarantee of making anyone happier. However, understanding what we actually want to achieve and work towards accomplishes that endeavour effortlessly.
