About Counseling

www.transitions-counseling.com :  Where Your Help Begins OnlineSM

Dear Prospective Client . . .

              A Letter of Invitation

Since you are taking the time to read this, I will assume that you are thinking about seeking counseling help for yourself, your family, or someone you care about. For most of us, by the time we have come to this point, we are at least beginning to feel overwhelmed or very frustrated. We may even be "in shock" — or something may have gone on so long that we are feeling "burned out" — even hopeless.

It may be something going on inside us, or it may be some event or circumstance in our outside world. Whatever it is, we may have tried every solution we could think of — but nothing is working. Perhaps, we feel lost within ourselves; or lost in our attempts to communicate in a relationship. Sometimes, we may feel lost in a situation over which we seem to have no control. In a world that is constantly changing, life may not make sense — or perhaps life has lost its meaning.

 A lot of situations may evoke feelings like those described. Such situations come to virtually all of us at some intervals in our lives. We don't have to be "diagnosable as mentally ill" to be able to benefit from counseling in such instances. Many events can throw our lives off balance. A once-cherished relationship may now seem unworkable, and we wonder how we ever came to this sad state of affairs. We may be facing the loss of a loved one. A traumatic event (past or present) overwhelms us. Drinking or other drug abuse may be a problem in our life, or the life of a loved one. The pains of our past may threaten to destroy our present life. In a world where work is always changing, our job situation may have become unbearably stressful or meaningless. Perhaps, something is going on in us or in our world that we do not understand — that even scares us. Or, we are scared for our family situation. These are but a few of the circumstances under which we might seek the confidential support of professional counseling to help us through the hard times.

Counseling offers us an opportunity to find a way to work through our circumstances and make our lives better. To get unstuck. To find ourselves. Counseling can give us insight and empower us to confront our problems and find our own solutions. It can empower us to finally reach out to others and really communicate. To empower others to find their solutions. We can discover how to make life workable and meaningful.

Almost all of us experience times in our lives like those described above. They are times for which neither our schooling nor our parents were able to prepare us. They are life situations which are often uncontrollable and sometimes inevitable. They demand painful change in us in order to survive, to grow, and to move to a higher level of living.

TRANSITIONS offers counseling to assist in making those changes.

You may decide to add professional counseling to your resources as you work through your difficult times. If you choose to work with me at TRANSITIONS, you will find that the counseling approaches include methods that are eclectic; including client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, Ericksonian and transpersonal approaches as primary methodologies. You are entitled to have answers to all of your questions about counseling before we begin our work together. Please feel free to call, without obligations, in order to receive answers to those questions.

With Kindest Personal Regards,

Granville Angell, Ed.S., L.P.C., N.C.C.
