Claiming your power

Thirst for Thriving

A regular post by Karyn, RCC 💛

"Self-care is how you take your power back."

– Lalah Delia

Have you considered making Counselling a part of your self-care practice?

As we approach the end of 2018, now is an excellent time to fully use your extended health benefits. Many plans cover Counselling with a Registered Clinical Counsellor or Social Worker.

Some common motivators to attend therapy are: Feeling overwhelmed by life's demands, anxiety that affects everyday life and feels uncomfortable, or readiness to work through some lingering disappointment or fear around close relationships.

Living powerfully opens up new doors.

Claim your power by sharing your truth in a safe environment. Let your voice be heard as you share emotions that may not have been fully expressed. Explore what has been challenging, and name the successes in your life. Therapy gives you the opportunity to relieve any tension or resentment that may be keeping you from feeling empowered in the way you live everyday.

What personal power are you being invited to explore?

Growth that Engages Heart + Mind

Are you a growth-oriented person? Do you thrive knowing you're facing the personal challenges and cultivating your good qualities? 

Being a lifelong learner means you're intentionally curious. There is more understanding and awareness to be found; new discoveries about how you function as a person and how you move in the world. You welcome this kind of learning. Even during times of happiness and stability, you are receptive to exploring what motivates and inspires your mind and heart. Ongoing self-reflection or taking stock of the inner life is important to you.

It can be reinvigorating to look at how you've grown over these last months, and to consciously acknowledge how you've been skillful or brave in tackling the challenges... and embracing the joys. Autumn is a marvelous season for cozying up with your favourite tea or coffee, and slowing down to reflect. Let yourself breathe easy and see what comes to mind with these questions. Have a journal or iPad nearby so you can write your thoughts down. Happy pondering!

Consider:

How has your mind grown recently? (Maybe you're more organized; can see a variety of perspectives; or have honed a skill like healthy cooking). Pause and be proud of yourself! Enjoy the feeling of success.

How has your heart expanded? (Maybe you have more space to love yourself; greater patience with changed plans; or newfound compassion for a difficult person in your life).

Now it's time to find a way of celebrating this growth that's been named. Do something simple and enjoyable, like telling your best friend or dancing to some uplifting music.

Continuing the conversation

 If you are needing support to build some new skills that allow you to live in a more grounded and courageous way, I'm glad to be of help. In our sessions together, we will also dive deeply into what you're doing well, because there are DEFINITELY things on that list!
