The Value of Counseling
We all wonder about the direction and meaning of our lives. These questions loom especially large when life changes cause us to assess if prior assumptions about lifestyles are indeed valid for us. A change in occupation, addition or loss of loved ones, or troubling events like divorce, death, illness or trauma all bring with them an evaluation of the present course of life. Frequently these events are a trigger for emotional or psychological responses, however they are not the only cause.
What is not usually acknowledged is that these events are to be expected in the course of of a lifetime. It is our response that creates a life worth living and determines our growth as human beings. If we learn to value the hardship and difficulties that we face in life, we gain a hardiness to endure the next difficulty and allow growth to move us to the next level of fully living out our lives.
Who is right for counseling? When should one seek help? What should one expect to get our of counseling? These are all questions people struggle with prior to making their first appointment. No one can answer this for you. Yet if you have considered these questions along your life journey, you are most likely a good candidate for counseling.
The Counseling process helps with this movement. The process of evaluating and naming the course, both known and unknown, in a accepting and non-judgmental environment allows people seeking solutions to grow toward the destiny which fits their life course.
