Ways We Help
Meaningful Counseling. Empowering Individuals to Live Their Best Life!
We believe clients are the experts on themselves. Our job is to help clients to heal from Depression; Anxiety; Trauma ect. which fogs our minds while concurrently equipping clients with adaptive ways to cope to replace mal-adaptive coping. During the healing journey clients can better hear their own inner voice which is their intuition wherein clients can start to live life accordingly to their own desires and aspirations to reach their OWN goals. Our goal is to help each client to heal so they can become the best version of themselves!
Compassion Focused Therapy
Utilizing a Humanistic Approach
Compassion Focused Therapy is used to help those whom have experienced abuse or lack of affection from their families of origin wherein one has learned more of how to harm themselves than how to help themselves. Those that carry shame and guilt often lead to negative self-talk / negative core beliefs i.e. "I'm not good enough" as well as mal-adaptive coping. CFT sets the foundation to introduce positive self-talk. By learning and experiencing compassion one learns to have compassion for themselves and others leading to an improved quality of life for themselves and healthier relationships with others.
STRENGTHS BASED SOLUTION FOCUSED
One Session at a Time
We are dedicated to focusing on our clients strengths to help clients overcome their areas of need. Often times clients cover their gifts because they were taught not to "brag" or "boast" but at PPP we believe our clients should employ their strengths and gifts to improve their sense of self. Living in our authenticity is where one will find the most happiness. It is the Petri dish where the strongest sense of self is born.
