What makes me a Humanistic Counselor?

What if your problems could turn into possibilities?



Humanistic counselors base their practice upon a philosophical foundation - the dignity of every human being. Humanistic counselors acknowledge the human being is responsible for their own destiny, which each person has within themselves the answers to improving their own lives. 

Humanistic counselors recognize and respect the ability of each person to employ reason, science, intuition, and creativity as tools for achieving goals. Humanistic counselors believe that wellness and health is best achieved by combining personal growth with service for the greater good of humanity.

We cannot have a positive life with a negative mind. What we think on a daily basis is at the root of our unhappiness. The humanistic approach to counseling also encourages the client to learn to understand how negative responses to life events can lead to psychological discomfort. Do you value a peaceful inner life?
