My goal from my initial contact with someone is that, by the end of our first conversations, they feel that I have listened to them. So the first session will mostly involve open-ended questions that gently draw the other person involved in the process.
I have noticed that many clients who I support don't understand the connection between mind and body. Many would describe some of their symptoms that are rooted in physical elements, such as chronic headaches, gastrointestinal issues, or hypertension. I provide awareness about the mind-body connection, that we practice healthiness among those two entities, then we are likely to be healthy overall in our lives.
I will work collaboratively with clients to determine what they would like to accomplish as a result of coming to therapy. We will identify the clients' strengths and draw from them while formulating goals because it is important that clients see themselves in a positive way. The client will get an understanding of the SMART goal, being specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound.
