A blend of different approaches is used to understand what suits best for the client. I believe that an eclectic approach can help me to be open in connecting and communicating with the client while further facilitating their effective healing process. I primarily use the Client-centered approach, Cognitive behavioral therapy, and Solution-focused therapy based on the concerns of the clients.
Her Thoughts on Counseling
Counseling is a therapeutic alliance between a counselor and a client
facilitating a journey to discover and understand Self as a person while unfolding their emotions,
thought processes, and behavioral patterns helping them to accept and adapt to change.
Why I Chose Counseling?
I have a strong desire to help others therefore I’ve always been a good listener with being able to feel and understand what the other person might be going through emotionally. Seeing individuals overcoming their issues and healing emotionally is what makes me feel happy.
Every individual has a need to be completely accepted as a person as who they truly are without having the fear of being judged. Therefore, I try to build a good rapport with the clients in the initial phase of the session as this creates a safe place for them to vent their feelings, open up and discuss their problems. I use my skills effectively while taking an eclectic approach to help facilitate the journey of change.
Concerns Close To My Heart
Every individual has concerns that affect them in one way or the other, wherein no concern is either too big to be addressed or too small to be avoided. Therefore, I feel every concern needs to be attended to, whether it is about the relationship with oneself or others, stress, or anxiety. Furthermore, I actively work towards increasing awareness related to the need for fostering mental well-being among all age groups.
How I Handle Stress
To handle stress, I primarily like to go on a walk by myself, listen to music as it relaxes and brings peace to my mind. I try to explore and reflect on the emotions that I experience instead of suppressing/avoiding them. I also express and vent out my concerns to the dear ones.
