Thank you for looking at this site or being subscribed to it. I know I haven’t posted much recently, but that’s only been because I have been insanely busy.
I’m hoping to put together some new material for you to consider.
Soon, I hope to have a video for you outlining a relaxation technique that I am teaching people that can make people who are upset to the level of a 8 or 9 on a 1-10 scale, where 1 is no issue, and 10 is out of control, to about a 1-2 within less than a minute, with a corresponding change in thoughts about the issue.
You may have heard of cognitive therapy. It is one of the premier techniques for helping people these days. I have a slightly different version of it that I use successfully with clients. I hope to write an article about it at some point.
I also plan to talk a little bit about relationships. Not so much about relationships with others, but more so about relationships with oneself (see some of my articles about active imagination (a technique from Carl Jung’s days in order to get an idea of where I am going with this).
Finally, I’d like to write an article about some of the gifts that pastoral counseling brings to this work, including understanding ways to evaluate life experiences and how to deal with difficulties in having a religion teach you one thing about yourself when you are coming to terms with accepting that the very thing it teaches you is contrary to your inner voice.
NEW OFFICE HOURS
So, my hours have changed, and I’ve added a few more. They are now as follows:
Th: 9-4:30 ish or 5:30p (depends on the week)
I’ve been away. I’m back, so how have YOU been?
I’d love to hear from you and see what you think about things you have read here, questions about our practice at http://www.psychchoices.com, questions about what counseling is and isn’t, etc. Please feel free to drop a line here or at my work email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
