The pace of society today is faster than it has ever been in human history. Counselling in Ottawa, like every other corner of the world, involves the development of a relationship between a client and a trained professional. The premise is to focus on aiding clients with surmounting their concerns and difficulties. The process is designed to give individuals the opportunity to improve on their self-awareness, which may include patterns of socialization, thought processes, behaviours, feelings and how these have positive and negative effects on our day-to-day lives. Understanding these influences can open opportunities, reverse negative patterns and improve lifestyle. Therefore, it is a collaborative process between the Counselor and the client to identify goals and extrapolate solutions.
It was once thought that counseling was for weak or maladjusted individuals, but that idea died with shock therapy almost two centuries ago. Today, with life changing faster than it ever has, and the technology-race moving forward at the speed of a missile, every person in society is feeling overwhelmed. In the 21st Century, we are all feeling a bit like Dorothy in Oz: “Toto, I don’t think that we are in Kansas anymore.” And we are not. New changes bring new ideas and new opportunities and new communications. But change also brings instability, misunderstanding, career indecision, academic pressures, self-esteem issues, grief and loss, divided families, stress, loneliness and anxiety. Suddenly, simple decisions seem to carry the weight of the world, confusion sets in and moving forward becomes impossible.
