We all have great potential within us. A humanistic approach means that your work with the therapist is a collaboration, creating a space for you to explore the areas of your life that you would like to strengthen or improve. This approach is focused on you as a whole person. The therapist will support you in identifying your strengths, resources and areas for growth.
Sometimes there is a specific situation or goal that you are needing support with. Solution focused therapy hones in on your strengths, skills and resources you have used in the past to resolve challenges. This is a collaborative process between you and your therapist, focusing on and supporting what is working.
An eclectic or integrative therapeutic approach allows the therapist to adapt to your unique needs depending on your goals, what has brought you to therapy and your expectations. The therapist will customize your treatment plan using a method or combination of methods that have been shown to improve the issue or situation which you are wanting to work on.
By working on your personal growth you are welcoming opportunities for better relationships, less stress and intentional living. Personal growth is working on the areas of your life that you would like to improve, strengthen or reevaluate. Working with your therapist on your personal growth can provide you with an accountability partner and clear goals that put you in charge of moving towards living the life you want for yourself.
As a helping professional it is imperative to make time for your own mental health so that you do not become overwhelmed and unable to do the work you love. If you are lacking healthy boundaries, feel disconnected from yourself, your values, or your body, the important relationships in your life could suffer or end in conflict. I work with helping professionals in many settings who work directly with people experiencing trauma, I understand firsthand the importance of investing in yourself.
