“I realized I don’t have to believe my thoughts.”

“I realized I don’t have to believe my thoughts.” | why not ask why | Scoop.it

"Training in mindfulness allows our minds to have a choice. At the moment in which you pause and realize that these thoughts are not really serving me, you have the option to come back to presence. This process of choosing becomes more powerful as you realize how thoughts can create suffering and separation. They create an “us” and a “them.” They create judgment and end up making us feel bad about ourselves.

In those moments when you’re lost in thought, what if you could pause and say, “OK, it is just a thought” That is revolutionary. That can change your life!

Now, the key is that we approach this with a gentleness and kindness. Each time we recognize thinking and come back into the present moment with gentleness and kindness, we are planting a seed of mindfulness. We are creating a new habit—a new way of being in the world."

..the human experience is process rather than product. Thus, there needs to be recognition by the client that therapy does not end in the result of a fixed state in which problems are solved. Rather, it is the enabling of the person-as-process to be able to handle situations as they arise in each present moment and remain congruent and true to one’s self. This is the essence of “a process of becoming”...

The Trouble with Men and Counseling: Men who go it alone when confronted by emotional challenges

The Trouble with Men and Counseling: Men who go it alone when confronted by emotional challenges | why not ask why | Scoop.it

The price men pay for acting tough and avoiding counseling and health care could be life.

 

Increasingly, studies show that men like him who equate seeking assistance with weakness, or the appearance of not being able to handle their own problems, experience more soured relationships with their significant others, higher rates of debilitating illnesses, and earlier death.

 

The cathartic benefits of reaching out for help are hardly a secret. As scientists have come to better understand the inner workings of the brain, they have documented the potentially catastrophic consequences for individuals, particularly men, who go it alone when confronted by profound emotional challenges. Some men have started to take heed. Yet they remain a small minority.

 

While clinicians and academics may haggle over the pros and cons of treatment approaches—many advocate a combination of psychotherapy and pharmaceuticals—there is no denying the toxic consequences of untreated depression at its most feared extreme. Distraught men are dying by their own hand in ever-greater numbers.

 

Many psychologists worry particularly about the recession’s ultimate toll on men who once may have defined their self-worth through their roles as breadwinners, only to lose those roles amid corporate downsizing and layoffs. How have men coped? Some, evidently, by drowning their sorrows. Alcohol sales rose every year during the recession, including a nine percent rise in 2010.

One of the Most Difficult Challenges for a Counselor

One of the Most Difficult Challenges for a Counselor | why not ask why | Scoop.it

You can follow this technique or that theory but real success comes from knowing who you are and what you uniquely bring to the counseling interaction that the client responds uniquely to.
 

And that you learn only by practicing your craft and learning what works for you.

 

I think that explains why it is so difficult to build up a body of work in counseling that can be passed down to future counselors—each of us is unique. That also explains why many of the amazing therapists in the past (Milton Erikson, Eric Berne, etc.) have always had a reputation of thinking ‘outside the box’ and their successes are often unique to them.
