For many people seeking counseling, what they think they need and what they actually need are two different things. While one might think they need an escape from their problems, finding a way of dealing with them is a much more productive way of approaching the situation. It isn’t always the case, but since problems in life are inevitable, nobody should reasonably expect to enjoy the luxury of a worry-free life. For many of Inner Source’s Loveland patients, dealing with change in one’s life has become a source of anxiety and distress.
Addressing The Inevitable
From the loss of a job to a death in the family, coming to terms with a life-altering event can be a difficult process. When a large part of your life ceases to exist as you came to know and depend on it, it throws you off your balance and forces you to adjust to new circumstances. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, because you are also experiencing the pain of loss while being forced to navigate unfamiliar, challenging situations. Accepting that this has happened to you is the first step on the road to overcoming and moving beyond your impasse.
Our counseling services are focused not just on helping you get over any one particular event; we give you the tools to deal with future changes in your life as well. So much of our ability to actualize ourselves in this world has to do with the way that we address change and problems in general. Coming to terms with the reality that life will always be turbulent, and then developing strategies for addressing those challenges, is one of the most important ways that you can empower yourself.
