What do you look for in a therapist? What's important? Surprisingly, age, gender, years of training and theoretical orientation are not the primary factors correlated with the effectiveness of a therapist. So how do you choose someone? Is it by their picture? The best website? The one that's taking new clients? Finding the right person can be incredibly difficult. Research suggests that the most important factors in positive therapeutic outcomes are the therapeutic alliance, working together to set collaborative goals, and the therapist's ability to be empathetic, accepting and genuine.

I practice a mix of contemplative psychotherapy, which uses the Buddhist concepts of compassion, acceptance, and mindfulness, and cognitive psychotherapy which teaches us to identify distorted thinking and correct the unhelpful "tapes" which play in our heads. My style is active and down-to-earth. Pema Chodron sums up my orientation towards dealing with difficult times: "...When the bottom really falls out of our life, we know we're in a tender place. And we know that it's actually very rich." ...This is where we can begin, together, to work towards healing.

Many clients I work with carry tremendous stress and anxiety that is rooted in trauma. My clients often feel stuck and need to know what kind of work will create positive changes in their lives. They may need to learn new skills that will help them have more control over their own thoughts, feelings and behaviors. An ideal client is open to the healing process, is motivated to find new positive ways of thinking and is striving to make his or her reactions to their stresses more productive. I offer individual counseling sessions depending on their needs.

I believe that even the most difficult symptom or behavior began as an earnest attempt to cope with something unmanageable. Understanding the purpose that symptom serves is a core component of the work of therapy. Unresolved feelings and beliefs can be explored and experienced, thus eliminating the need to hold on to a symptom that is no longer serving you. Incorporating skills to move away from the habit of using an unhelpful behavior gives a person a boost to finally break out of a difficult cycle. The creation of an authentic therapeutic relationship is the essential foundation from which the process of psychotherapy unfolds.

Peer Relationships in Falmouth

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Falmouth

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Falmouth

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.

If you're looking for help with child peer relationships in Falmouth or for a Falmouth peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in Falmouth and peer relationship advice. They include peer relationship Therapists, peer relationship psychologists in Falmouth and peer relationship counselors.
