Clients do not want to lose those they love, to isolate from the world, to have anxiety and confusion, to experience deep depression or to completely lose trust in themselves and others. Nevertheless, that is often their reality when they enter treatment. With counseling support, clients develop the power to turn things around for themselves. They understand that thoughts, feelings, behaviors, goals and self-caring are areas they need to work on in sessions and outside of sessions. They work toward the positive adjustments needed and that takes time.
Do you constantly worry about any undue, prolonged anxiety, depression or have mood swings or employment issues, loneliness,difficulties in relationships or life events such as marriage, divorce, death, parenthood, blended family issues, retirement. What about chronic physical illness caused by tension and stress or problems following traumatic events such as accidents, childhood abuse, etc.
Are there problems with domestic violence or other forms of abuse
Are you affected by stress in the face of chronic or terminal illness or other health problems
Do you have constant worries or obsessions,excessive anger,frustration,or guilt with no resolution. What about self-destructive thoughts and behavior problems with drugs or alcohol .
It is important to understand that the counseling required to assist a client with these issues takes time and on-going support. Motivation is a key ingredient to moving forward in counseling.
However, motivation and resistance are ever changing states of readiness. To lower the client's resistance positive action is required from the client. Even with these positive actions change is difficult and the client may feel stuck. Nevertheless, action and change help predict new behaviors. New behaviors encourage clients to move forward and to reach their goals. But there is a big difference between thinking about change and taking action to make those changes. The client is taught how to develop healthy habits of self-advocacy. CFTI clients develop the necessary skills to address this. They will focus on verbalizing optimism and demonstrate commitment.
This work is essential to personal growth and counseling can encourage individuals to face the adversity and barriers they encounter as they move forward in their recovery program. It is a move forward to self-actualization. Clients are offered the opportunity to talk about and understand their fluctuating emotions. The client can then act on what needs to be changed.Client's lives are improved by taking one step at a time. Clients begin to believe, I am worth the effort to get better.
