A Note About Counseling...
Many people hesitate to see a counselor because they feel that no one can understand their particular set of circumstances. Others may feel that the issues with which they struggle are not "serious" enough to seek professional help in dealing with them. Still others may view therapy as a sign of weakness or personal failure. Sadly, all too often such mistaken beliefs prevent people from taking positive action to improve their emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Seeking counseling is a sign of strength, not weakness. It is a signal that we have made a decision to take control of issues or problems in our lives, rather than letting them control us. Working with a therapist can be a great way to gain new perspectives, explore new options and solutions that may have eluded us, and find ways of getting "unstuck" from situations in which we may have felt helpless.
The therapeutic environment gives us an opportunity to be ourselves, in privacy, without judgment or ridicule. It allows us to discuss what troubles us honestly, openly, and confidentially. At New Pathways, we view counseling as a collaboration between the therapist and client, who work together to understand issues, clarify thoughts and feelings, establish goals, and find ways to achieve a better quality of life.
No problem is too small or too unique for an individual to potentially benefit from counseling. If it troubles us, it is worth discussing with a therapist. Whatever your own reasons for considering counseling, please remember that you are not alone.
At New Pathways, we believe that counseling is a collaborative journey toward increased understanding of oneself and a healthier self-acceptance. We believe you have within you the answers, together we will work to find them.
