I am a strong believer in the idea that there are times when you need to go to counseling. These times are rare and when they do occur, it can be extremely enlightening and overwhelming. One of my personal favorites is when a client has a problem that is affecting their daily life and they are experiencing self-blame, depression, or anxiety. This is when I work with them to help them identify what causes what and what they can do about it.
I am so happy to be able to assist people when they are experiencing any of these things. It is truly a privilege to be able to help people to be able to see clearly that their pain is not something they created but is simply the result of their own mental state. This is what I call “the heart of the problem.
This is what I call the heart of the problem.
I find that there are two types of people who seek out depression counseling. I call them Type A and Type B. Type A are the type that seeks out a therapist because they are looking to get better. Type B are the type that seek out a therapist because they are looking to get help. Type A are the ones that tend to just need to be helped and there’s nothing wrong with that.
I think there’s a difference between needing to be helped and wanting to get help. The latter is a symptom of an underlying issue. When a person just needs help, and not for any reason other than they want to get better, then they’re not the problem.
In our case the problem is that a certain someone needs to get better. Theyre not the problem.
As a person with Type A personality types, I feel that I have a pretty strong need to be helped. In general, I have a hard time seeing myself in a helping role. I feel as though I’m a bit of a monster. I feel as though I have a lot of self-centeredness in my personality.
Again, I don’t want to sound callous, but I think this can be a good way to keep the person you’re going to help feeling better. The problem is that the help you provide can be a way for the person to continue feeling better.
Like when my sister calls me and asks for money. She tells me that she calls me often for work. She is having trouble with her phone, and it’s going to take her a while to figure out what to do. I can’t help but wonder if she really is a little kid. I don’t want to sound like someone the person who has no problem getting calls from the person she’s trying to help.
This is an issue that can be addressed at many levels. For example, I would suggest that you take the first step by talking with a professional counselor. This can help you to understand your behaviors, as well as what your triggers are that lead to your pain.
