Boulder Family Counseling
The Journey Begins with Discovering
Your Beliefs and Patterns
The first step to creating a better life for yourself is discovering what contributes to your pain, fear, happiness and success. This knowledge and understanding opens the door to change. Boulder Family Counseling will guide you through the discovery process, reflecting on your thoughts, beliefs and behaviors. By helping you uncover the patterns that keep you stuck in life, you will gain clarity about how to move forward.
Your first session includes an in-depth conversation about your past experiences and relationships. Where you are right now is largely due to where you have been. Your past matters – it reveals the behaviors and patterns that continue to run your life. We will talk about your family history, past and current relationships, and the current struggles you are experiencing. These conversations will help identify the obstacles and blocks to your happiness, creating a new awareness of your life.
Becoming Aware of Behaviors
Allows Growth and Change
You have some level of awareness about your life already, leading you to seek out help. The awareness that your life isn’t working for you; finding yourself in the same situation or maybe in relationships with the same type of people over and over again.
Together, we will look at the situations that arise in your everyday life. We will explore the thoughts and emotions that surround these events. Helping us identify the repeated patterns and giving us insight to a strategy for change.
Unique and proven techniques will be used to integrate your discovery and awareness into your life, giving you a new perspective.
Creating a Strategy and Having a Plan
Creates Clarity and Focus
We will collaborate to develop a strategy with a step-by-step action plan to respond to life. The plan will take into account your lifestyle, work and any other life circumstances. Helping you create new patterns and behaviors for living a happy and healthy life.
Change is not possible without taking an active role. For your strategy to work and be successful it will require you to practice daily the new life skills you have learned. We will set goals and create an action plan to fulfill them.
This is what sets apart Boulder Family Counseling from many other counseling services. Integrating goal setting and taking action is what clients attribute to their success.
Taking Action and Implementing Change
Will Set You Free
A strategy and a plan are nothing without action. The plan needs to be implemented into your day. Life changes require commitment, desire and willingness to think, feel and do things differently.
At the end of each session you will be assigned “homework.” The homework will be action oriented so you may practice what you are learning and have support along the way. We will start the next session with a check-in to chat about your success and challenges.
Many clients have shared that while the homework idea seems a little silly at first, it was life changing for them.
