Life would be so simple if we get everything we wanted. But as we know we often face lot of challenges… We have problems in our relationships, we have tensions at the work place, our children sometimes behave in a puzzling manner and we have no clue how to deal with them.
So many situations around us cause lot of stress. Like earlier days, just talking to friends, or relatives or elders in the family is not enough to handle these situations and often skilled advice is needed. A friend can sympathise with you, a relative or an elder one can tell you his experience in a similar situation, but they won’t be able to help you enhance your skills in handling such situations even in future.
Here a job of skilled counselor is invaluable.
A counselor is an individual who is not involved emotionally in you, like your friend or relative. He can maintain his objectivity and view your situation with more clarity.
Stress affects us in more ways than we realize. Stress distorts our perception of reality, it affects our decision making, it affects our health and behavior which in turn can cause lot of damage in our lives.
Stress affects us in more ways than we realize. Stress distorts our perception of reality, it affects our decision making, it affects our health and behavior which in turn can cause lot of damage in our lives. At such times, we need a skilled guidance to steer clear through difficult situations.
Even today we think that going to a counselor, means admitting that we have a psychological problem. Somehow we feel awkward and scared to go to a counselor.
But we need to realize that counseling cannot be done to psychologically deranged people. Counseling is for only those who are intellectual and can think and analyse and are ready to change their situation.
Counselor can make you see things more realistically and clear the fog. Counselor never makes any decisions for you, he guides as to how to make a decision in a difficult situation, he helps you deal with the conflicts you have. He makes you see your anxieties, and fears which you may be avoiding to deal and he will increase your awareness about how your internal mental processes are affecting your thinking and decision making.
When we avoid to face certain emotions or conflicts, because we find them difficult to deal with, it takes lot of our energy to keep them away from our day to day life. Such constant drain on our energy can finally cause a disease at physical level.
But if you are in touch with your internal realities, it enhances health and harmony in your system creating a sense of well being.
You can realize that it is extremely essential to have good psychological health to enjoy good physical health. And here role of counselling is very supportive and restorative.
