Helping ourselves and our patients make peace with thoughts and feelings in our minds

In counseling work, we often see a number of relationships that people can have with their minds.

They can fight with their minds. 
They can be a slave to their minds. 
They can suffer in their minds.
They can try to escape from their minds.
They are at peace with their minds.
They have a “healthy distance” with their minds and can use it as an effective tool. 

The last two are the least tiring. 

Helping our patients to make peace or create a healthy distance with thoughts and feelings in their minds, is a significant part of counseling work.  

As a healthcare professionals, we can try to do that too perhaps.  It will make our jobs much more enjoyable.
