Helping our patients to take action in a more mindful and helpful way rather than reactively and impulsively.


When working with patients, we may observe the following.

1 Some folks are really great at processing external data and take action based on that.

2 Some folks are really great at processing external “feelings/vibes”and take actions based on that.

3 Some folks are really great at processing internal data from their past experiences and memory, and take actions based on that.

4 Some folks are really great at processing internal “feelings/vibes” and take actions based on that.

Everyone seems to have a “blind spot”. One can recognize our “blind spot” when we tend to use a particular method in a more reactive/impulsive way, rather than in a more mindful, and helpful way.

Which one/s are yours?

In counseling, we help folks to work on one or more of those, with no.4 often the most difficult for many.

Why?

I suspect that our schools and homes are not great at teaching no.4. I really hope that this can change in the near future....
