Traditionally, counselling is seen as a way to tackle specific problems. Most people only come to therapy when they feel unable to cope with an issue on their own. Once the crisis has passed and they feel better able to cope, they stop their counselling sessions.
However, therapy can also be seen as an ongoing form of support which helps people to grow even when they are not in crisis.
The focus on improving ourselves
Self-development is a huge and expanding industry. There are many different books, apps, podcasts and products designed to help us be better, happier people.
There’s a risk of all these aids creating more stress, particularly for people who tend towards perfectionism. It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you should meditate every day, enjoy a rigorous exercise regime, sleep the perfect eight hours every night, and so on.
Self-development counselling isn’t about that. It’s about understanding yourself better and accepting yourself. And having the power to make any personal changes you might wish to make.
Self-development counselling is powerful
Some of our clients choose to come to therapy when they are not in crisis because they are curious about what they might discover about themselves when they don’t have particular problems to focus on.
We all have habitual behaviours and negative beliefs that hold us back in life. They often have their roots in childhood and some of them are so ingrained that we are unaware of them. Identifying and working on these patterns and behaviours through self-development counselling can be life-changing.
