Let’s be honest. Things feel overwhelming, right?
At Conscious Living Counseling & Education Center, sure we specialize in all things anxiety, relational anxiety, and stress resilience. But we love helping people navigate life in general.
So much of the world is changing and evolving. In our homes. At work. In the world. In our relationships. Now more than ever, we benefit from good emotional and mental health. These internal resources can be nurtured and grown daily through your actions, response to your thoughts, and your ability to connect and get support from the community around you. At the clinic, the top reasons people reach out for 1:1 general support are relational anxiety, an experience that feels stuck or sticky in the mind, and personal growth.
We refer to this type of counseling as FLOW therapy. Meaning you want to get your flow back or feel engaged with life again.
You know that mental place – where everything seems aligned and your life moves forward more easily. Versus feeling stuck, burdened, and overly anxious about relationships, safety, opportunities, and the impact of all that’s happening in the world.
In this process, we see where you tighten yourself to protect against something that feels undoable or unmanageable. The mind gets blocked when avoiding something or rejecting a particular experience. We have a process that can help you get back into the flow and engage with your relationships, work, and daily life.
Sound good? We think so, too.
“But I’m ok some days, is flow counseling worth the time and energy?”
100% yes. It’s an investment in your mental and physical health. Not feeling like yourself can really increase your stress and eventually lead to more anxiety or low mood. For women, stress deeply impacts hormone health and mental health. Women who build resilience have a stronger sense of self, lower blood pressure, improved heart health, are able to handle intense thoughts and emotions, can access humor and optimism about the future, have stronger support networks, and report healthier daily habits. Same for men. Your mental and physical health are deeply connected.
Just think about when you feel less resilient. It’s so hard to bounce back, everything feels serious, habits get less healthy, and relationships suffer. Nothing is in flow. Or it goes in and out of the flow.
You deserve better. We’ll help you follow an effective, logical sequence to build resilience skills. The process includes:
- First, Discovery, how are you doing? What’s working well? What feels stuck?
- Then, become aware of what happens in your body when you’re aroused (most people are not aware!).
- Practice how to manage distressing thoughts and emotions. We got you. This is a learnable skill.
- Increase your ability to engage in thinking habits to feel better.
- Practice until you’re thriving not reacting.
- Increase flexible thought and problem-solving.
- Lastly, learn how to apply these skills forward to get traction!
These skills are core to mental health, connecting to joy, solving problems, and finding your own personal solutions to life stressors.
“What if I don’t know what I want to talk about for sure. I just know I feel off?”
Think about it for a minute. Where are you struggling? Take out a piece of paper and look at the core areas of your life. Where do you believe you’re thriving, and in what areas do you feel overwhelmed or anxious?
- How would you describe your thinking patterns right now? Are they fluid or sticky?
- How are your relationships? Are you surrounded by people who care about you and have your best interests in mind?
- Is how you’re using your time serving you well? Or do you feel overwhelmed with little traction?
- How’s your sleep and overall health?
- Are you aware of your needs and engaging with your needs in a healthy way?
- Do you ask for what you need from your support in a healthy way? Or do you feel stuck?
- Did something happen that’s still bugging you?
Does anything come to the surface? If it’s stuck – it will spill over to other areas of your life. How can you feel strong, confident, and well – if managing your thoughts and emotions on a daily basis has become a challenge?
We’re here to help. Book a session with a FLOW and stress specialist. If we can answer any other questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. We love supporting our community and helping men and women thrive.
Women needing additional support can join our executive function Group, Move Forward.
CLC offers a time & personal management program for women taking the next step in their growth journey for anxiety and ADHD. (We support men too – call the clinic for more info.)
Why time management? Because most people don’t get these skills in early development. It can deeply impact your ability to self-direct and reach your goals. Keeping you stuck in deep emotions like shame, frustration, and anxiousness.
We’re a private practice, and we strive to deliver premium counseling services.
Your privacy is our primary concern.
As you’re exploring the site, please keep in mind, you don’t need “a reason” to schedule.
If you believe you would benefit from talking to another adult, privately and confidentially, about what’s happening in your life, that’s enough.
