Should I go get counseling?

Going to see a therapist is just going to talk to a professional who will be objective and help you see how your current thoughts and behaviors might be keeping you stuck. Although I am a trained Bowen Family Systems Therapist, I find myself drawing principles from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) framework to help my clients. My clients find that CBT is easy to use in resolving their problems. CBT in Mey's terms is learning how one's thinking affects one's  emotions and therefore determine one's behavior and then learning how you can change your thoughts so that you can change your emotional state and behavior. Our thinking changes our attitude and it can change our reality. Talking to a therapist can help you change yours. I have never posted something I've seen on social media, but the below post explains how our thoughts affect us. Read to the bottom and then from the bottom back up. Enjoy!
