The field of counseling has long focused on repairing or healing damaged aspects of the human character in accordance with the disease model of human functioning. This model encourages a focus on human weakness and orients counselors toward interventions around solving problems rather than aiding in enhancing strengths and building a bridge toward success.
While psychological intervention for the sake of solving problems isn’t likely to disappear anytime soon, a psychology focused so largely upon weakness and trying to repair the worst things in life is inadequate to meet the demands places on individuals in a complex modern life.
Our drive to achieve success in the various domains of our lives, in fact our desire to live the free and fulfilling lives we dream of require connecting with the strengths of character and the development of the personal means needed to reach our desired goals.
At the Center for Conscious Counseling, our approach to intervention includes the integration of positive psychology approaches with the best of the great wisdom traditions of the world along with more conventional forms of psychotherapy.
While not loosing sight of the challenges and problems that so frequently bring individuals into counseling, we recognize the incredible value in focusing on individual strengths while working together with our clients to build a vision for a sustainable experience of personal fulfillment.
