My Approach to Helping
To me, counseling is about finding one's Ã¢â€šÂ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¾ƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢s path, knowingly taking the journey to look for ones true and valuable self. Gathering the courage to name and move towards a new future self. Lots of action words, right? It is about movement, about shifting, sometimes changing direction, sometimes stepping out into the unknown to explore. And, ironically, it is also about sometimes slowing down and sitting still, quieting the noise in our heads to hear our true compass.
It is about being brave enough to ask the question ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œwhat is true to me and about me, right now, in this place, as I look towards that place?
It is about listening to our own compass; a tool that helps us understand, then navigate, whether we are lost or just needing to go somewhere else.
