Our moods frequently fluctuate up and down, usually
within a relatively narrow range. But sometimes we
can get stuck at one of the extremes, and be unable
to free ourselves. These moods are very responsive
to alterations in our self talk, by learning how what
we say to ourselves affects our moods we usually are
able to make substantial changes quickly.
Anxiety results from a two step process, overestimating
the threats facing you and underestimating your ability
to cope with them. Depression is caused by our grief
at what we perceive as the negative outcomes in our
lives. In essence, anxiety comes from looking too
far forward, while depression comes from spending
too much time in the rear view mirror. Counseling
aids clients in focusing in the now, while greatly
improving outcomes in the present.
Cognitive Therapy is the treatment of choice to manage
moods. How we feel is directly related to how we are
interpreting the situation. Distorting our reality,
making things seem worse than they really are, is
the key mistake most people make. Cognitive therapy
helps you restore objectivity and accuracy to your
assessment of your situation. I have been trained
in this approach and have used it successfully for
years with hundreds of clients.
