A bright young man, previously diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, took medication regularly. He said he had great difficulty “getting my mind right.” He sought counseling at the recommendation of his psychiatrist. At the end of our work together, he said: “I didn’t think I was going to get this much out of counseling, but now when ‘my mind is not right’ I listen to the CD you made for me and I can go with my day and accomplish my tasks. He was referring to a customized hypnosis relaxation CD made for him.
Counseling for Modern Life Challenges
Modern life sometimes feels like doing white water rafting with no previous experience creating a sense that we are losing control. When life challenges us with difficulties, it also presents us with an opportunity for growth and expansion. How we deal with those challenges determines our success in life. Modern life seems to be giving us more and more dares and we may feel that we are running out of energy and strength to keep up. In the midst of our struggle we need to remember that a life well lived is a life of growth and that requires continuous change.
A holistic approach to counseling, mind, body and spirit, can help you integrate gentle, innovative and effective methods to reduce stress, manage pain, and eliminate depression and anxiety. It can also teach you relaxation, visualization, guided imagery, breathing, journaling, meditation, energy techniques and much more … to help you restore your balance, inner peace, and wellbeing. Your counselor can teach you how to use these new learned tools and how to access them whenever you need them.
A holistic approach to counseling allows you create your own personal healing journey. Your counselor becomes your mentor and your guide providing support and encouragement along the way.
Our holistic approach to counseling guides you to pay attention to the thoughts that you think. The mind attracts what it thinks about most, the stronger the thoughts, the stronger the attraction. If you want to move in a positive direction and create a new quality life, you must begin by paying attention to the thoughts that you think. Remember what Lao Tzu said: Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habit. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” Changing your thoughts changes everything else but it is not an easy task, it’s like teaching your brain a foreign language. It can be done and it requires a strong commitment and perseverance.
Regardless of the life situation you find yourself in at the present moment you can create positive changes with a holistic approach to counseling. You don’t have to know how to do it; your counselor will provide the guidance for you.
