What happens in counseling?

You know you want help, you know you are suffering and everything you have tried so far hasn’t worked.  You keep having the same kinds of experiences over and over again and you are baffled as to why.  You know you’ve got some baggage, but you’re not sure what all is in there or how much it’s really weighing you down.  You hear other people talk about counseling, maybe you’ve even tried therapy before.  You’re considering it now.  You found your way to the Therapy Austin website.  What next?  What can you even hope for here?

We can see clients in the early hours before work, in the later hours after work, or on the weekends. We are here for you.

office 1

Caring & Exploring

Meeting with one of our therapists weekly, you will form a relationship with someone who validates your experience and your perspective and is  committed to helping you find ways out of your current stuck habits.  She will listen intently and come to know you and your story in a meaningful way.  Your counselor will help you look at experiences from childhood, become aware of your current patterns of thought and behavior, help you identify what gets in your way of living your life the way you want to, and will challenge you to change and grow.

 

office 2

New Perspectives

Your therapist will be caring and will create a private space for you, outside of your current system, a space where it is safe to explore yourself.  She will give you her full attention and reflect back to you what she hears and what she sees.  She will offer you some perspectives you don’t currently have, she will see things that are in your blind-spots and will gently show them to you.  

office 3

Challenging Habits

This counselor, your counselor, knows some things you don’t yet know and she will use them to challenge you, to help you to heal and grow.  Your therapist is dedicated to helping you be the best self you can be.

It's competitive out there

livin' in A-town

Austin culture can breed a lot of competitiveness and I'm-not-good-enough thoughts. If you are new to Austin, which a lot of you are, moving here was probably exciting.  But you also experienced a loss of community, of family.  A city like ours that is secular, competitive, urban, fast-paced, and demanding can breed isolation, fear, anxiety, and depression. You may end up in the mindset of “I’m not this, I’m not that, I don’t have this, I’m behind, they know something I don’t, I’m not going to get what I need”.

"I should be happy all the time"

(are you sure?)

We live in a feel-good culture and we get lots of crazy messages that we can and should be happy all the time.  It gets confusing.  While there is a lot to be said for positive thinking, there is also a lot to be said for the reality of what it is to be human.  Having the full range of emotions is a fact of being human and is what creates meaning in our lives.  Without loss and pain, we wouldn't appreciate gain and pleasure.

Anchored in the storm

how therapy helps

At Therapy Austin, we aren’t promising to get rid of any of your feelings for good. We are absolutely dedicated to guide and teach and help you reduce your suffering.  We are dedicated to helping you learn how to be anchored and balanced through any emotional experience. The way we respond to our thoughts and feelings is the key to this.  We all have ingrained habits.  In counseling, your therapist will help you become aware of your habits and guide you in forming new ones, ones that will enable you to be the person you want to be in this world.
