Learning the ‘why’, and trusting the process, we can then accept, forgive, build, and change learned reactions, and triggers, and focus on the positive to promote healing, and move forward. Counseling is an interactive learning process. In every stage, with each situation, there is yet something new to learn about origin, presence, and understanding, of creating peace within, and knowing yourself a little better along the way. It is a journey to discovering intrinsic needs and challenges; of growth and exploration, and understanding ourselves. A journey of healing, of learning skills, positive change, and new focus.
