Rendkívül egyszerű: több vagy kevesebb szenvedés lesz a világban attól, amit teszel?
Psychological counseling can help us with the stress caused by everyday troubles, indecision, or other readily identifiable problems, including coping with life transitions that we all face.
Compared to psychotherapy, psychological counseling deals with more rationally transparent inner conflicts, works mainly with the adult part of the personality, is more limited in time and shorter in duration, and deals with the „well enough functioning personality”.
Its goal is to restore the optimal function and decision-making ability of the personality.
Everyone is an expert for their own life
It is important to emphasize that the counselor does not give direct advice or make decisions for the client; on the contrary, the goal is to help the person regain the ability to make the right decisions about their issues.
I work with a fundamentally person-centered approach, but am infused with a constructivist view of reality, an existentialist view of humanity, and the systemic approach.
According to the person-centered approach...
…in every human being there is a huge potential for self-knowledge and the ability to change in a positive direction.
The supportive relationship is there to unleash those possibilities.
A person-centered helping relationship has three main characteristics:
Individual psychological counseling
Life does strange things – sometimes you can use help.
In the development of every human being, crises occur in a predictable way, which bring similar challenges and difficulties for all people.
In many cases, we need external support because our own coping skills are not sufficient. In such cases, psychological counseling can also provide support.
The most common topics my clients approach me about
…maybe you also bothered by one of these …
Couples or family counseling
The constructivists say: „There is no real understanding, only happy misunderstandings”. But as Martin Buber says: „All real life is an encounter”.
When we turn to others, we can suddenly perceive ourselves, and that is the basis of compassion.
In a relationship, in a family, there are many such situations, but our family members are usually very close to us emotionally, which often leads to quick emotional reactions in tense situations.
Mutual understanding and acceptance can be developed, as well as the ability to express oneself and advocate for one’s needs.
These are mutually reinforcing processes that can be easily learned and adapted.
