We all need backup from time to time.
So we lean on our friends and family to listen and offer advice.
The truth is that friends and family often struggle to listen nonjudgmentally without trying to fix our problems. This happens for a good reason; they are emotionally invested in your well-being. They want us to be okay so badly that they railroad over us to try to fix our problems or sweep them under the rug to make everything feel better.
Unfortunately, this well-meaning support often leaves us feeling invalidated and unheard.
Feeling invalidated and unheard for an extended time leads to anxiety, depression, and fractured relationships. When we feel rejected, we tend to stop trying.
There’s a better way.
“Why do I feel better right now? Are you a wizard?!”
Those words blasted out of a client’s mouth as he had a breakthrough moment of exploring and understanding his limiting beliefs. It was a memorable moment of celebration!
Sometimes people joke that therapy is like voodoo or witchery. The reality is that the healing that comes from being in a safe space with a trained therapist can sometimes feel magical and mystical.
We’re not gonna lie. It can be.
Therapists are trained to support you in a way that works.
Imagine a space where you can be your authentic self with someone who will not judge you and will help you explore the life experiences and thinking patterns that brought you into therapy.
At Nexus Counseling Services, we believe that everyone should have someone in their life that can be that person for them.
We can be that person for you.
We will get to the root of the issue and help you experience what it’s like to be fully present in your life.
We will laugh. We may cry.
Hell, we will even rejoice at times. That’s right. We said it. Rejoice!
