Having a healthy self-esteem or positive self-image is important for long term health and happiness. Your perception of yourself is shaped by many factors, beginning with your caretakers, and extending to friends, society and those with whom you choose to be involved. A healthy self-esteem allows one to meet the challenges of life. Without self-esteem, individuals can turn to unhealthy behaviors such as co-dependency, substance abuse problems, anger management problems, self-harm, and/or a lack of drive or goals in one's life. Self-esteem is something that can improve. With the help of a Healing Telephone counselor, you can begin to improve your self-esteem. By working with a counselor, you can learn how to refute negative self-talk, deal more effectively with your anxieties, challenge your erroneous thoughts about yourself, engage in new experiences to gain a sense of mastery, and try new behaviors that reinforce your positive self-worth. Having a solid sense of self-acceptance and a positive view of who you are can greatly enhance your relationships and your goals in life. You do not have to settle for a life less than great because you feel you do not deserve it. Begin to embrace who you are by reaching out for help from a Healing Telephone counselor.
What can you expect from telephone counseling?
Using the phone to talk with a counselor is not much different than what you could expect from an office visit. The therapy we offer at Healing Telephone Counselling, by way of the telephone, can be as effective, or even more effective, than the traditional in-office visits.
You may have anxieties or concerns about office visits and may not be as willing to open up and truly express your feelings and thoughts because it seems too overwhelming or intimidating to sit down, face-to-face with a counselor. By using the telephone, you can discuss without the self-consciousness you may experience sitting across from a mental health professional.
We have many professionals available to help you.
The first step to engaging in therapy is to select from our list of highly qualified professionals. You can do this by both choosing from the list of on this page, and reviewing the different the counselor's profile and listening to an audio introduction if available. Start gradually with a free consultation.
We offer a free 10 minute screening to ensure that you would like to work with that counselor, as it is important that you feel that there is a good match. Once you choose your therapist, you can begin therapy in a way that feels most comfortable to you.
It all starts with learning about your needs.
Your therapist may initially ask you questions about your concerns; explore how your issues are impacting your life, and what are some of your goals. You can choose the pace at which you want to go. This means you can slowly address your issues, or you can choose to share your problems in your initial phone session.
You can expect your counselor to be a non-judgmental, supportive individual. He or she may ask you questions about your thoughts and feelings, and help guide you to exploring issues surrounding your concerns. The counselors at Healing Telephone Counselling are invested in helping you to achieve the goals you would like. They can help provide knowledge and tools that enable you to deal more effectively with your problems.
