How to get the most out of your counseling
When you make an appointment with The Counseling Solutions Group what do you receive in addition to the actual counseling session? What really is being asked is what all is involved in the process of change?
- What will it take for you to breakthrough a lifetime of habituated thoughts and practices?
- How can you be free?
- How can you be at peace?
This is an important question to ask. We believe counseling is a good start toward the process of change, but we also believe counseling alone will not be effective to comprehensively help you.
Situational difficulty does not come to you quickly or all at once. It is typically the accumulative effect of many years of challenges. Therefore, it will take more than a season for a person to successfully work through the necessary changes in order to be at peace.
Realizing this, we have invested a lot of time, focus, and energy into a customer satisfying plan that is comprehensive and geared toward realistic and measurable change.
If I asked you to lose 100 pounds over the next few months you would envision major lifestyle changes coming your way. You would also expect the change process to involve more than two hours per week. There is no magic in weight lost. It takes work. In like fashion your spiritual well-being is similar to the physical challenges needed for effective change.
Someone once said if you continue doing the same things you have been doing then you can expect similar results. In that sense, your future can be predictable by looking at your past. The good news is if you determine to make radical changes in your thinking and behaviors you can then expect complete and satisfying lifestyle changes. This will require more than counseling.
We suggest our counselees become Members of our training site. It’s the most inexpensive and effective way for you to receive ongoing care. Though we don’t counsel on our Member’s site, you will be able to access a full library of Rick’s lifetime work. This “all you can eat” site is the perfect complement to your sanctification needs.
