What is it that you want? What are you going after? What's your focus? Bring intentions to your actions. That's how you make change happen. Choosing counseling as a means of helping yourself is a good first step -- the first step toward changing things in your life, relationships, or whatever the issue is. We all have ups and downs. When the downs are difficult to get out of, we sometimes need to talk things out with others. Come and share your story.
For me, counseling is about listening, learning, understanding. It's about getting "stuff" out of our heads. It's about learning how we can express ourselves, and knowing it's okay to share with another person. Counseling is about finding a positive solution for a negative situation. It's about self-love.
