Helping our patients get to their desired destination and create a life that they want

If we can imagine our patients as “flying planes” trying to arrive at a desired destination and creating a life that they want, then …

Their feeling mind=the autopilot
Their thinking mind=the pilot
And their physical body=the plane

Then we may be likened to flight ground control and the maintenance team at times.

For this to be effective, their must be trust and good communication between the pilot and ground control.

It’s no wonder that the therapeutic relationship between the patients and ourselves, are the best determinant for a positive outcome especially in the context of counseling.

The other point is, do you have a reliable ground control for yourself as Family Docs? It’s hard being a pilot and ground control at the same time isn’t it?
