Finding Reasons to Hope in Dark Times

Many people consider counseling after a major life crisis. If your crisis is overwhelming for you and feels like too much to bear, turn to a professional at Stress Free Counseling. One important quality that we believe good counselors offer is hope counseling. We focus on reinforcing your hope, that personal, comforting, and sustaining belief that life has meaning even in difficult times. We also help you gain an understanding of the roots of your feelings.


Getting Perspective

While a counselor obviously can't solve all of life's problems, a good counselor can help put things in perspective and offers suggestions that have worked in other similar clients. Often, how you view a situation is one of the best places to work with. We can offer a perspective you had perhaps not thought of during your immediate crisis. Consider these common examples below. Notice how we might not be able to change the event but maybe we find a better way to deal with the situation.

Example A

Situation: You feel alone with your problems and no one understands you.
Hope: The counselor offers evidence that you aren't alone and finds support groups, books to read, online forums of those who are walking in your shoes.

Example B

Situation: You give up because your mental illness is too much to deal with.
Hope: The counselor will help you research your illness and find others who have your condition. We will offer therapy techniques possibly not tried before and give you tools to talk to your doctor about medicine management.

Example C

Happy Family

Situation: You can't manage all of the stress in your life. You feel like you're going to have a nervous breakdown.
Hope: Simple stress reduction techniques work well. Two important counseling techniques are partializing and prioritizing the problems that are often proven to reduce stress.
