Lets start by asking…why NOT go to counseling? Let me guess… no time, can’t commit, too busy, its not that bad. Those excuses, yes excuses, I just rattled off are easy to say but they’re fictitious. Many people believe that only “sick” people go to counseling or you have to really be struggling to get help from someone. Well that couldn’t be further from the truth.
In my decade of treating clients, I have come to understand the apprehension that some have in committing to counseling, it is with that understanding that I formed Elevate Premier Counseling, initiating a concierge counseling service. I take away those excuses I mentioned above and come to you, right in your home or destination of your choice, where there is convenience and discretion. It’s time to put you at the top of your “to-do” list. Make yourself a priority, I assure you, the benefits will pay off!
Here are my top 3 reasons why everyone should be involved in counseling at some point and even more so, on a consistent basis:
1) Because NO ONE is an expert at life
That’s right, you’re great at a many things but you’re not great at all of it. It’s impossible to be. I have worked with top business executives and professionals that are experts in their fields and although brilliant, they’re not brilliant in the vocation of living life. You spend a lot of time maintaining things; your car, your home, your wardrobe, your appearance…why not invest in maintaining your true self.
2) Because you deserve to be the best version of yourself
I believe this with every ounce of my being. Everyone has the capacity to work on being the best version of themselves, but you may not have the tools to do so. Many mothers I work with feel like their identity is just being a mom and once they open up to being more they feel reunited with themselves again. The most exciting part of this is discovering the definition of who my clients want to be, and then we understand what that is and how to sustain it.
3) Because times get hard and hashing through life’s messiness is easier with an outsider
As the outsider I have your best interest in mind but I also have the privilege of being very honest and challenging. Those two components are essential in what makes counseling work. If you’re struggling in your marriage it’s likely you both feel like you’re on the hamster wheel going round and round in circles with virtually no improvement, or you’re just checked out. As the professional outsider I have the ability to make the sessions progressive therefore the couple begins to see the resolution they want.
