Who benefits from counseling?
Most people can benefit from counseling at some point in their lives. For example, Individuals who are feeling sad, anxious, stressed or fearful over a period of time lasting more than 2 weeks. Some of the symptoms may be trouble sleeping, changes in appetite, trouble focusing or concentrating, and persistent thoughts of death or self harm. Others maybe going through a critical life challenge, such as a divorce, illness or death of a loved one. Many people have experienced traumatic events in their lives, which continue to affect them, and they can benefit greatly from therapy focused on that trauma
People having issues with relationships, marriage, family or employment also benefit from counseling. Almost everyone will benefit from counseling at some stage of their life, as everyone faces different life challenges that can benefit from looking at different perspectives and learning new coping skills, as well as learning ways to handle strong emotions.
How does counseling work?
Counseling is usually done in person with the therapist during weekly sessions that are 50 minutes long. You may be given homework to help you put new thinking and behavior into practice. In my work I use cognitive-behavioral therapy which means I will help you see how some of your thought and behaviors may be causing your issues, and help you make positive changes. I also do other modes of therapy as indicated, especially for those suffering from traumatic experiences.
Who benefits from coaching?
Individuals who want greater success in their endeavors- whether career, business, sports, creative arts, health or relationships, and who seek more fulfillment and balance in their lives. You, the client, are the expert in your life, and only you know what is best for you. As your coach, I help you tune into your internal wisdom to discover and reach your highest potential.
