Integrating Emotional Counseling into Your Life
We are exceptional, and only we can devalue ourselves. We can embrace our humanity with compassion when we approach emotional dysfunctions as shame/guilt distortions. We can see how shame/guilt distorted our childhood and understand our caregivers. When we think about ourselves with our shame/guilt minds–or rather the part of our minds imprisoned within shame/guilt—we see ourselves as victims within our lives rather than as conscious co-creators. We are not victims of circumstances shackled by family genetics as we hold onto our abuser’s shame/guilt. Our life is our responsibility to heal, and we can heal our parental environment within us or our inner family.
Battling the demons of our past and present, we tend to lose ourselves in a whirlpool of negative thoughts. We call these demons, shame and guilt, and they don't belong to us. However, they dictate their negativity, which pulls us into a pool of negative overthinking and destructive behavior.
When toxic feelings accumulate, we start to develop traits that hamper our functioning ability. While experiencing a minimal amount of shame and guilt allows us to lead a prosocial life, experiencing these emotions consistently becomes toxic for us and those around us.
Whether these emotions emerge from a short-coming or a transgression, it is essential to release them for our mental, physical, and spiritual health. With Lois' counseling and teaching, we identify these negative patterns of internal conflicts that destabilize our mental peace. Encompassing years of experience, Lois has pulled many out of crisis mode to live a vibrant life that invokes joy, peace, love, and creativity.
Heal Yourself with Depression Counseling
The ensuing effects of shame and guilt are unsettling and unnerving. Being hard to overcome without the help of a counselor, we can start to feel overwhelmed. Through compassionate and experienced counseling, Lois teaches us to untangle guilty thoughts that draw us into a state of depression. The negativity of depressive thoughts hamper our day-to-day activities, and we are unable to cope with emotional issues. Lois teaches us that shame and guilt cause the negativity that dwells within us. She guides us on how to change our depression into compassion and live free of emotional and mental constraints.
How to Deal with Guilt & Shame?
Nagging guilt is an experience that most of you have endured, but hopelessly do not have a resolution. Be it feeling wrong about something you did or not do, guilt and shame can render you incapable of processing happiness. With Lois' integrating counseling, you learn that shame and guilt are separate but work together as one powerful force.
Lois will take you on a unique journey to resolve toxic mental and emotional behaviors. You will be able to replace judgment with self-love, replace stress with peace, and replace mental chaos with harmony. At last, you will forge a new synergy with your soul, mind, and body.
