My approach to metnal health and well-being coaching and counselling
The core of the strengths-based counseling and coaching is to help clients to tap into their inner character strengths in addressing their issues. Strengths-based counseling and therapy is a science-based approach based on clinical evidence. When clients are encouraged to understand and use their strengths in difficult situations and overcome obstacles, they appear to change for the better and are more animated and happiest. As Martin Seligman one of the main founders of positive psychology says these treatment is not only about fixing what is broken, but also about nurturing the best in us.
I use this approach in combination with some other methods, primarily cognitive behavioral therapy. The major steps that are taking throughout the period we work together are:
1. History taking and identification of the main issues,
2. Solutions development and working on the issues,
3. Stabilizing the improved condition.
I will explore what drains you emotionally and physically while paying particular attention to what is right about you. I will help you better identify and build on your unique, innate character strengths and capabilities and use them to improve your mental state and well-being. The sessions are not about one-way communication; they are collaborative and require works from both of us, and you and I find the best solutions to your challenges together based on your strengths and your life realities.
After addressing the emotional and behavioral challenges, I help you gradually create habits that allow you to sustain and nourish your well-being and become independent from my accompaniment. This is an essential step because I want my clients to successfully continue their improved life on their own. The strength-based coaching does not only help you to improve your emotional state or decrease your psychological symptoms, but it also helps you:
Improve your relationships by identifying strengths in others and using your strengths to connect to others.
Align character strengths with your activities and tasks and thus be more mentally energized and happier.
Optimize your performance
Whether you challenge is due to your childhood traumas or past events, or some current events, you can heal, grow and flourish by understanding your strengths, utilizing them, setting clear boundries for yourself and others around you, understand your true nature, and process difficult memories.
I am here to help you to achieve this.
"On the path of managing your emotional and behavioural challenges and cultivating your strengths and innate capacities, you learn more and more about who your true selves is. The 'true self' that is beyond material things like your body, education, possession, etc. It is transcendent and is like a mine filled with gems of inestimable values such as love, empathy, calm, wisdom, confidence, understanding, joy, etc.
The true self that is authentic and yet unified and is ever evolving."
