Often times when people think about counseling they think about addressing a “problem” or coping with a specific event. Although that is an area counseling can be very beneficial, counseling can also focus on self-development.
Personal growth can mean becoming more mindful and engaged in life, developing a wellness routine, processing thoughts and feelings to improve problem solving skills, or even time to reflect and learn from experiences.
Personal Growth focused counseling allows for the integration of your past, present, and future to help you gain harmony with your thoughts, feelings, actions, and goals.
