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?

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
