My Approach to Helping
Most of the time, we may be capable of dealing with issues arising from various aspects of life. Nonetheless, at certain points in time, we might experience challenges and struggle to untie the ‘knots’ in our own minds. In these situations, it makes it hard for you to function in daily life. It prevents you from moving forward to reach your full potential. To accomplish a simple task may become a struggle as you become overwhelmed.
"If it's to be, it's up to me!" is a favorite quote of mine. You can't rewrite your history, but definitely you can choose to minimize the impacts! My approach is based on the individual's attachment style and according to the Attachmen Theory, bonding or the relationship is the core issue of our lives. Childhood history and experiences definitely accountable for our current functioning style that is predictable from the attachment lens. Throughout the years we develop certain behavioral patterns in response to our lived realities. These learned responsese very often, we operate on auto-pilot and when it becomes ineffective, we get stuck in our own vulnerability cycle and cannot move beyond a problem. My role as a counselor is to provide you with professional support and guidance, and to help you to create a new ability to unlatch from your stuckness by creating a new connection to yourself and others.
