So things might not be going as planned and you might be questioning where do I go from here? The good news, you’ve already taken the first step to shifting the course with Calgary Counselling Services.
We are here to facilitate change with you.
At Virtuous Circle Counselling in Calgary, we know mental health is important and in knowing this we provide Individual Therapy and Couples Therapy by our Registered Psychologists and Experienced Counsellors. Services are accessible with extended hours to offer in-person sessions, online therapy, phone counselling and walk & talk therapy.
Therapy will be a collaborative process where you and your Counsellor work together to find the best solutions for your particular situation.
It will be goal-oriented meaning they help formulate and work toward goals that have been set with input from both parties, as well as counselling skills such as empathy and active listening which facilitate change in our thoughts, feelings or behaviours.
In addition, counsellors may offer psychotherapy (talking), cognitive therapy (thinking) or behaviour modification strategies designed to relieve symptoms of mental illness including depression & anxiety disorders. You are paired up with a Calgary therapist who is trained in accredited education.
Have you been stuck in a rut and can’t get out of it? The more you procrastinate the harder it is to achieve your goal to the point you start questioning the value of your goal. This is how a vicious circle works. An unwanted result. This leads to judgement, shame and blame. A vicious circle generates anxiety, avoidance and poor mood. Vicious circles are driven by a reduction of confidence.
In contrast a virtuous circle is driven by non-judgement and self compassion. Change starts with a single point of action. Taking the step towards change leads to an objective perspective of a situation providing correction and better results. As the virtuous circle evolves and the cycle repeats, self trust grows and so will your confidence. This activates a powerful feedback loop and chain of events that will improve your life. It is essential to keep virtuous cycles growing. Through positive reinforcement, your potential becomes self-actualized and leads to a spiral of growth.
If you find yourself experiencing emotional pain, sleepless nights, anxiety and worry, or feel your goals are slipping away from you, our counselling services in Calgary can help you.
