Deeply held beliefs about yourself and others develop out of life’s traumatic and painful experiences. Out of those limiting beliefs come patterns of thinking and acting that work against the dreams and goals you have for your life. (Yes, even I do this! Sara)
Sara Felushko draws on her education, marriage, parenting and ministry experience to help her clients learn to identify the limiting beliefs and develop healthy successful strategies for their life.
Her counselling is holistic, compassionate, and person-centered. It is collaborative in nature, with the client and therapist participating as equal partners in both goal-setting and working together to reach those goals. She uses an integrative approach to counselling focusing on developing mutuality and compassion.
She draws from Compassionate Communication – based on the principles of Nonviolent Communication by Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg, cognitive behavioural therapy as used by Dr. David Burns, and interpersonal neurobiology by Dr. Dan Siegel. When requested she uses the principles of pastoral counselling.
Goals of Therapy
Therapeutic goals are set collaboratively with the client. Some common goals are increased self-awareness, improved communication skills, improved relationships, increased self-esteem, improved mood, positive lifestyle changes, improved problem solving and decision making, etc.
After therapy, her clients report a shorter return to set point when moods rise and fall and increased ability to talk with their teen children and other family members. They have learned how to express their observations and recommended strategies to superiors at work. And to understand their own core values as they discover methods to live in harmony with those values.
