The Possible Benefits of Counseling


Do you realize that counseling is somewhat similar to going through an educational experience? This is because the therapist can be like an instructor, a motivator. While you would start to learn more about yourself. You may never know, there is also a chance that you will acquire new skills because of undergoing some counseling.

How to Choose a Counselor

There are different counselors that advertise their services online. Some are available in community centers while there are also others that have their own private offices. You can choose a counselor depending on your budget although there are some sessions that may be covered by your chosen insurance.

You can always ask for recommendations from people that you know. There are some who may have tried different counselors in the past. They can recommend the person who has helped them the most. Just remember this: not all counselors will work for everyone. Find someone that you can be comfortable with. Once you do, talking about your problems and troubles will not be problematic for you.

The Benefits of Counseling

What are the things that you and the rest of the people who undergo counseling will get? One of the most important things is the acceptance of oneself. There are still some people who are not happy with who they are. They have made some achievements and they have fulfilled some of their goals but because they cannot accept who they are, they cannot be truly happy. These people can benefit a lot from counseling.

These are some other things that you can expect:


l   You can start to become more confident. You already know who you are and what you want. This will provide you with the confidence to make your own decisions.

l   Those who are suffering from depression can get relief because they can talk about their problems without the fear of being judged. There are also counselors who may provide some medications that will help people take control of their mental health.

l   You will be able to control your feelings of anger better. Are you the type of person who gets angry all the time? It may not only be because the whole world is set to anger you. It might also be because of your dissatisfaction with all of the things that you are going through.

l   The ability to control your feelings of stress appropriately. There are some people who are so stressed that they are unable to function anymore. You can always control your feelings of stress when you undergo counseling. You will be able to determine what are the things that are causing you to feel stressed out. You may distance yourself away from these stresses or remove them from your life. The choice will be up to you. You are sure to come up with strategies that will allow you to deal with stress appropriately.

l   You will also suffer from less anxiety. Your anxious feelings can make you a bit unsure of the things that you should do. Counseling will allow you to gain back the self-esteem that you my have lost.

With all the benefits of counseling that you have learned, are you ready to start finding the right counselor soon?

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
