Counseling for mental health.
Counseling, first and foremost, is the exploration of an individual’s experience with the goal of identifying what is impacting that person in the moment. From the time we are born, we are learning. Our five senses are the tools that collect the information from outside of us. The information we collect comes from different sources. From those different sources we get the information we need to navigate the world.
Whether it is our immediate family or the world at large, we have a lot of sources of information. And this information we receive forms the human that we eventually become. We are the result of our experiences, our thoughts, our fears. Within us lies the information that we carry to our marriages and our jobs. We pass on what we learn to our children, at times without awareness. All of that information can be overwhelming. How you deal with that information and its results is just as overwhelming.
We cope with the demands of life the best we can with the tools we have gained in life. The tools remain in our arsenal because they have worked previously and to a degree of success. However, those tools that worked in our youth may not work in our adulthood. This realization brings with it frustration, stress, and conflict. When you find yourself at that point where it feels like nothing works, it is best to talk to someone impartial and empathetic.
